    What a cluster F%^$ of pipes. In New York, this is another $1,000,000 in Union contracts for repairs.

    I remember when that steam pipe in NYC let go. It was only 18" or 24". The aftermath looked like a bomb had gone off.

    Sorry Duke, I was thinking of well I don't know who. I am way guilty of getting my kicks in that corner too, but I don't wanna live there like Al inc.:)

    Well, this'll sure get the job done if you can find a fence post to rest it on while you take aim. Always loved that one.

    I've seen a few lead-pipe service feeds. Measure the flow through an old threaded pipe feed, and get a number way off the charts for galvanized steel, whereupon it becomes evident that you're looking at lead pipe.
