T.E.A.B.A.G-4: Southern Steelworks: TPB Mk.1 (Tommaso Paladin the Boxer)
Oi oi gentleman,
Southern Steelworks, is well pragmatic when it comes to getting the job done. Specialising in shipping containers, we are Announcing our first tank the TPB Mk.1 (Tommaso Paladin the Boxer) (Fig.1) for T.E.A.B.A.G-4.
No messing about, here are the specs and how we meet them (Fig.2).
Now you know there is no funny business going on. Here is the icing on top.
The tank we have produced is “Tommaso Paladin the Boxer” (or TPB Mk.1). A bit of wordplay from its influences. Aesthetically it looks like what that bloke Picasso makes.
I’m not an artist but I think I looks... umm well... not that pleasant on the eye... though it has its own strange charm... (i'd weep too), by the way talking about the tank not the painting (Fig.3).
Saladin the clever sod during the crusades achieved a lot of military success through mastering logistics. The core features Tommaso is designed around is logistics. TPB Mk.1 has every utility you need. Storage capacity for tools, spare track, a log. Also, the rear of the turret is extended and has an attachment point as an option for recovery. 5 lights in total, one which rotates with the turret so it can work dur... keep reading on reddit ➡
Any recommendations? There’s this old frame I have that used to take 27 1/4 wheels but I want to turn this into a gravel bike. Right now it has a 700c wheelset in it with long reach rim brakes. It’s OK, but I really like the flexibility that disc brakes afford me in my other bikes as far as tire clearance and fender options go, not to mention the superior stopping power.
Before anyone says it, I’ll beat you to it. It’s a steel frame, and yes I know that alum frames are trickier jobs.
I live in Mandaluyong so any nearby places would be appreciated!
Salamat in advance!
This story is all over the news today in Australia - here's the link to the article in the Australian Financial Review, have copy pasta the story in full below. Australian Government may bail them out, we'll have to see.
TL;DR: Credit Suisse is attempting to liquidate Australian steel manufacturing and mining industry billionaire Sanjeev Gupta. This has massive implications across every State and Territory in Australia, particularly in smaller towns where the industry is what keeps them alive. House of cards....is falling.
Sanjeev Gupta’s Whyalla Steelworks could be sold off or forced to seek a government bailout to avoid closure if new court action instigated by Switzerland’s Credit Suisse to wind up the 56-year-old South Australian manufacturing plant is successful.
Citibank’s London branch filed an application on Tuesday for “winding up in insolvency” in the NSW Supreme Court against GFG Alliance’s OneSteel Manufacturing, which operates the Whyalla Steelworks, and GFG’s Tahmoor Coal.
Citibank acts as trustee for some GFG invoices that were packaged into bonds by the collapsed firm Greensill Capital and held in four supply-chain funds managed by Credit Suisse, which is trying to recover billions of dollars for more than 1000 investors who sank money into them.
The aggressive move by Credit Suisse, which has taken similar legal action against GFG’s Liberty Commodities business in Britain, underlines the increasingly precarious financial footing of Mr Gupta’s GFG as it desperately races to try to refinance about $6 billion worth of funding that had previously been sourced from Greensill.
GFG entities are coming under legal attack around the world as Credit Suisse launches wind-up motions in several countries to try to seize assets and resurrect its reputation following its association with two collapsed entities: Greensill and the US hedge fund Archegos, which had $13 billion of assets under management.

Right now I'm on Day 20 of my first run and I'm wondering if I should be in a hurry to get Steam facilities or not. I know the benefits they have, but are there any drawbacks to them? Do they burn coal just from having them function? Wiki says they are "steam powered" so I'm not sure. Also, are there any resources out there with a chart that lists the coal burn rates for every heating element/setting in the game?
I’m a welder, and my work naturally involves a ton of heat from the welding arc as well as grinding sparks and metal shavings. Every work light I’ve owned has eventually broken from being subjected to these conditions. Can anyone recommend a work built specifically for extreme conditions such as welding? I can’t seem to find anything online. Thanks!
The largest steel mill in Europe opened in Port Talbot, West Glamorgan, Wales, on 17 July of this year. Lauded by the Government as a symbol of continued British dominance and defiance against the communist menace roaring across Europe and particularly in Greece, the ceremony was a tremendous affair attended by a number of dignitaries and members of Parliament. Of note, Sir Walter Monckton the Minister of Labour and National Service and Gwilym Lloyd George, Secretary of State for Wales and the youngest son of Britain's other wartime Prime Minister the late David Lloyd George.
The predictions for what good Port Talbot Steelworks might do are encouraging. Foremen at the plant boast that at its height it could produce five million tonnes of steel plate in a year, driven on by three massive modern blast furnaces-- the older two (which if retained would have indicated a total of five blast furnaces) are slated for destruction in the near future, having been built in the 1920s and well outlived their usefulness.
The Minister of Labour and National Service declared, proudly, that the Port Talbot Steelworks would create employment opportunities for 18,000 Welshmen in the region, a tremendous boon.
I am having an on-site interview at a steelworks, including a site tour. I am a woman.
I want to seek some advice for what to wear. Should I wear shirt and pants like formal attire, or should I wear steel cap boots and bring my safety glasses as well?
I do realize some people where jeans on plant, is there any preferences on clothing?
