  • Steel slats are strong.

    They will keep out all comers. Or is that, they will overcomb all outers?

    In all seriousness, steel slats sound like the ideal solution, dontcha think?

    Unless someone invents an acetylene cutting torch or a Sawzall. Then I say we go with concrete. Or quicksand. Or something. It's a crisis FFS.

    My cordless 18v DeWalt reciprocating saw can cut through several steel slats on a single charge.And I have a few spare batteries...

      My guess is that the scrappers with a pickup truck and a gas powered cut off saw are looking forward to it.

                I admit it - your previous post was an inspiration for this thread.

                  Unless they build it out of Corten steel it will be high maintenance.

                    Sadly, this holds for more than a few atrists.

                        I don't wish "dope fiendedness" on anyone. I was a dope fiend way back when (speedballing, no less) and my music flat SUCKED then.

                        But I stand by what I said.

                        Bell Bottom Blues does make me cry.

                            That sounds, uh, expensive.

                              The picture that shows the slats been cut through was just a prototype.

                              the plan for the Real Steel slotted wall is to have it made from unobtainium.
