Good morning sir , I wont be calling :-)
But I do have a recent interest in a certain branch of engineering & was
wondering if you could point me in the direction of a suitable newsgroup
for the problem if this newsgroup isnt the best place to ask .
Assuming theres nothing suitable already available over the counter at a
reasonable price - i'm interested in what it would take to build a home

under pressure .
Car jack a few pounds from a scrap yard & most people know somebody who
could weld the frame together .
Was thinking of using the same 2 inch flat bar to make the rectangular
As a layman with no engineering experience its difficult for me to
predict any future problems with the above (assuming its even the right
Specifications and designs would be most welcome .
FYI powdered cannabis would be put into the mould to form a solid block .
FYI i've no intention of doing this & i'm just asking for
curiosity/interest value .
