But preferably not at 38,000 feet!

Having said that, most commercial aircraft nowadays are glued together more than they are screwed.

I'd say that when those RR engines fall off they'd have to screwed then, well & truly!

Rolls Royce engines don't fall off Sir.

That'll be GE or Pratt and Twhitney!

If you'd worked for RR as I have done, you wouldn't have such a high opinion of their engines (or their employee relations, come to that)!

I suspect that goes for most organisations these days.

Run by marquetry* departments and bean counters.



*Marquetry: The art of decorating a thick plank with expensive veneers. Also known as marketing.

When Rollers were still made in Crewe the photo department was out in the plant next to final paint inspection. Despite that I still got my ground pod powder coated there and my quick release plates anodized.

They didn’t have to look pretty.

They used to produce castings for the jet engines at Crewe when I was in the photo department.

Everybody knows that you use a sledgehammer to crack a nut. This tradition is part of our heritage. Nothing to do with Allen Keys!

Is this a 'nut' as in a hard-shelled seed, or a 'nut' as in a square or hexagonal metal block with an internal screw thread intended to be fastened to a threaded bolt or stud?

History does not specify. They used to do all sorts of things with hammers and also tongs. There again, in "going at it hammer and tongs" "it" is not specified.

So, would you use a Monkey Wrench on Monkey Nuts?

But think what it would do to the value of your equipment if you glued the quick release plate on.

You do need a sledgehammer for the Australian Macadamia nut - they're like a brown ball bearing!
