Name This Detailcomments (11) February 11th, 2011 in Blogs
The editorial staff here at the magazine receives a lot of reader letters. Often, those letters contain a question about a story that we published, a construction detail that we have illustrated or a product that we have mentioned. Other letters contain questions that seem to be generated by simple curiosity. Such is the case with this letter from John Morris of Simpson, Pa. John Writes:
