Posted:grrrr! *shakes fist at cruel world*



had a hilarious day today.



for 3 months ive been designing and contructing a modified kiln door to run the experiments i need for my engineering thesis.



everything has been built - preliminary testwork was promising - but we had to move the entire rig to a different lab, and set up the system to remove alll the nasty gases the reaction produced.



the room was perfect - everything was prepared - we just had to get the kiln in the room, plug it in, and i could start experiments.



we dissassembled as much as we could, and moved everything down stairs using a variety of forklifts, trolley-jacks, and ropes.... to find that the kiln doesnt fit through the door on the new lab!



3 months work - to this!



the one thing i didnt think about!

*sigh*

i know a guy who had a similar problem. An sailplane wing he'd built in the front room of his (rented) house that was too wide for the window it had to go out of... He knocked out a substantial portion of the wall around the window then rebuilt it again afterwards eek

Posted:There's always something...

What are you trying to vent? Our fume cupboards dismantle quite flat and as long as you've got a generator to run the extraction fan then you can fit them just about anywhere. Not too successful with high molecular weight gases that crawl along the floor though.

Alternatively spend a couple of months banging away making weird noises so that your supervisor thinks you're doing work then make it all up.

Not that I could condone that of course.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:aww man that sucks!mad2
i bought a foosball table that had to be assembled, i mad e it up in my living room,(it had all those threads that if you un did it, it would weaken the table joints so once its up it stays up), then couldnt fit in down the hall way into the spare bedroom/games room!, i ended up having to get all my friends round to help me take it out through the balcony and in through the main bedroom window, ( which was a big window luckilly).. took us bloody ages to think of that. ubbidea..and a lot of angles involved..
good luck!!!

Posted:Congrats man, I'm just about to START my engineering thesis here in a couple months... I have to build a shock tube for fuel injection analysis. Should be a blast, and I'll definitely remember now to pay attention to the obvious stuff before I get too wrapped up in it biggrin Guess it's an engineer thing...
