16. I do see....
what appears to be an angle cut beneath the veneer. Maybe the same one as the other thread contained. I simply missed it. Apologies. What I would like to see is a close up of that cut. What I found curious is the still in a video I've viewed(9/11 Mysteries I believe) showing the cut angle along with a demolitions worker rigging a column with explosives that match the same angle as the beam in the photo. I would be curious to see a picture of the beam being rigged, after demolition. One of those photos, the one being passed around, and one cut with the same method as the above photo. I am assuming it is a thermal lance, as the torch is hanging to one side, off the basket, and there appears to be two unused thermal lances standing upright in the basket. Maybe I'm completely wrong about this, and maybe those guys are really good with those lances. The occasion I talked about before was my one and only experience with a thermal lance, and they were metal eaters. Just slabs of steel with large amounts, globs, of slag was left, but in all honesty, they may, or may not, have been rather old at the time. There is also the possibility of improved construction of the thermal lance since I was employed as a welder. In construction now(drywall and metal stud framing) with not much call for welding on our part. I am basing my opinion on an experience that happened ten years ago. Thanks for the input, and apologies if I don't respond quickly, or at all. Between work, family, and my mistress(Dodge Ram SS/T), I don't have time to do justice to any extended conversation. Thanks again.
