    When it comes to the Payson joints, I'm not worried about them. They're in the middle of bulkheads, and shouldn't be subjected to any serious shear stresses.

    Most bulkheads are in compression, though it depends on location.

    hoytedow,

    I just read your links attached...seriously sad circumstances still in SA.
    I worked in China with a fellow from there, he had to fly out one day to protect his best mate that was shot 5 times and in hospital. He went there to get the fellas but the cowards knew and moved away...********.
