    You know that, right?
    Unless he's using wood made before Dec 2003, there is no arsenic in it. The new stuff is alkaline copper quad. It uses copper as the main treatment. And the reason you need to use a coated fastener. Any normal steel or even zinc coated fastener will rust quickly. It's the reason when you go to the home center and all the decking screws are coated and 2x more expensive than years ago.

    Ahab, you posted about the consistent twists for nice looking safety wire work, it can be done by hand but pliers like these make it much easier if your are going to be doing very much.

    Installed a 24v to 12v converter under the glove box and mounted some outlets under the dash. I put in a back up camera (front facing one too), so i need a 12v source to run the cameras. I added an on/off switch so it won't draw from the batteries when not in use.

    The chinese clones will work for most purposes. They are a bit fatter than the "name brand" ones. And they will wear out quicker. But if your not going to do a lot of safety wiring, they will work fine. If your only going to do one or two things. Just do it by hand. I'm a 25 year aircraft mechanic.

    As a aircraft mechanic your then totally familiar with all the different types of safety wiring I'm sure ! It looks like the whole plane is safety wired together ! At one point in my career I thought about becoming an aircraft mechanic. All the safety rules you must "follow to the letter" and all the paper work and such turned me off. It was bad enough being a transit bus mechanic. I like short cuts to much I guess !

    Even worse, as I have been an aircraft maintenance inspector for the last 17 years. The paperwork dotting the I's and crossing the T's gets even worse.

    If I was a pilot, I believe I would SURE appreciate all the back-checks and rule-following by every mechanic and inspector who worked my aircraft.

    You bet!
