Oh yes, it is- especially when it comes to grinding off Grade 8 harden steel bolt heads (/sarcasm). I've never yet figured out why bus manufacturers (or at least International/Amtran) don't use nut plates instead of regular bolts. So much easier to work with. And if AM General, and every other green fleet manufacturer, can use them on combat vehicles that blown and shot up, they should be perfectly fine for hauling kids around.

Quote from: kerick on April 17, 2015, 07:14:00 PMCareful putting the wood near a place where it will get wet. Regular oak will turn black and Pergo type flooring will swell at the edges.
Quote from: Howard of Effingham on April 18, 2015, 06:08:09 AMdunno if the USN/USMC still do it but in the 1980's old service buses [similar to these but with a bonnet] were regularly trucked out to some of the ranges in CA and NV for use as targets, especially at NAS Fallon istr. several of the arms and armor press books on say the NSWC et al have pictures of these in service OD very shot up.
