Subject: Phyllistran melting
My earlier post about my phyllistran melting left some confused. A
couple of guys thought somebody melted it for me. The actual melting
was from the force of the phyllistran being pulled apart. I guess you
engineer types can explain it. But I think there must be alot of heat
generated as the stuff is pulled apart.
Maybe I'm wrong, but that is what it looks like to me.
BTW: I was glad the phyllistran was in place. Had it been steel the
entire tower would have gone over. Sometimes it's nice to have a fuse
