Professor Hammer’s Metalworking Tips
Professor Hammer helps a reader make a patch panel!

Q. I am replacing the rear lower panel on my Chevy pickup cab. I made a patch panel approximately 6 inches tall and 32 inches wide. I butt-welded it with oxyacetylene and it warped badly.

Prepare for Ludicrous Speed! Porsche 918 Spyder Featuring Our Exclusive Test Results

Flush as we are with nutty performance cars at the moment, we should remember that automobiles as quick as the Porsche 918 don’t come along too often. In 2008, the quickest (and fastest) production car we had ever tested was the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. It could hit 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and burn the quarter-mile in 10.1 ticks.

To put that in perspective, 0.3 second is about how long it takes you to blink. As acceleration times shrink, their deltas become increasingly larger percentage gains, so the 918’s third-of-a-second edge over the Veyron represents an astounding achievement.

We are now in the midst of what I like to call slash-your-wrists or lose-the-will-to-live season and it can apply equally to whether you are issuing or writing up a sometimes seemingly interminable series of quarterly results.
