Re: Mechanical Properties of Brazilian Walnut

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello All,

Sorry to reply to myself, but I noticed that when I tried to put
the 'e' with an accent ague on the word Ipe, that the system
didn't like it.  So the word Ipe came out as Ipé.  It looked good
on my screen but not when posted.

I hope that my post below is more clear now.

Take care,
