    No, but I DO have a box of bubbles calibrated for a 2 foot level that I will sell cheap. If that doesn't fit your need, I can get you a metric OR standard cresent wrench for the same price.

    Oh, yes. Also, If you find a need for a beam stretcher, give me a call.

    It looks like the guy on the tower with you is using a PMI Avatar harness. I have one and so far am impressed, though I havent used it much. I also have the same helmet you were using. Do you know where the light came from? I am thinking about getting one. Thanks Rich.

    Guarding my good plastic buddy on the way down the 6 story tower. The system locked up (don't remember exactly how it happened) and I spent about 30 minutes hanging out on the side of that building. By the time I got to the bottom I was spent, but had to climb back to the top for more work.

    Hey 1219,

    That's the drill tower at our training academy!

    Nice facility, huh?

    You've not lived until you get to do an Aussie rappel with the rope in one hand and a UMP 45 in the other. That's just a little bit o' heaven on several different levels.

    Thats ok Steve, you guys can "have" your Aussie rappel - I'll stick to just going down in the regular fashion. However I agree, just doing the rappel is awesome. Been waaayyyy too long since the last time I did it. Outside the northwest wing, 6th floor of the Empress Hotel, Victoria, 1985. Very KUUULLLL
