Not wanting to mock serious injury, but knee **** reactions do sweet FA to improve things.
Neither does pretending the potential isnt there, the only knee-**** reaction I see there are the words you posted above! I take it you missed the word REASONABLE? If you reread what I posted I called for NOTHING to be banned, just that if someone modifies something that is designed to hold 200Bar of pressure (that is a little under 200 times atmospheric pressure, or in old money 2900psi i.e. the weight a car applied on an area 1"x1") that it is at least engineered properly and tested so that it is safe. If you are comfortable to be in the presence of a cylinder that is holding that sort of pressure that Billy Bodgit has butchered in his garden shed, and that no-one knows sod all about then fine, BUT you cannot make that decision for everyone else or accept that that risk is acceptable on their behalf! All I have called for is good engineering practice, nothing that is difficult for the vast majority of good engineers carrying out this work.
