    TIT

    I think Cklett was close to the mark.

    I would find an old panel saw (24" or less), which should be around .032" thick. Then set the teeth heavily until the kerf comes to 1mm (.040")....

    Selling power back to the mainland was why the Tasmanians were caught out. No water left and no DC link and no power for the Hydro companies to sell to their own people. Send in the clowns, ahem! I...
