gorton #2 needed some coaxing....

jpf321 Member Posts: 1,566
on a big job i've been donating my time to for the last 4 weeks, we just got in some #2's from (they were nice enough to let me go pick-up again) .. however i wanted to note the the #2's seemed to be "frozen" out of the box .. I needed to give them a few good raps with my palm before they freed up. they all passed the blow tests just fine. hopefully we will refire the system tomorrow after 4 long dirty weeks of a full rework of the system and i feel that the vents may well be the least of our worries.
