Vats Dat?

Those larger items around the rim - I rather imagine they are hand-tightened bolts so the cover can be removed without tools. Might I be correct there?

Vats all folks

I grew up in smelling range of Hoffman LaRoche, Nutley when they used to make B vitamins there. Now I live about 2 minutes from the place. They closed down the Nutley facility about three years ago. I drive by there a few times a week and one by one the buildings are being knocked down. Lots of jobs lost, probably a good chunk of tax revenue for Nutley too. The property borders rt3 east in Clifton which is seeing a renaissance of sort as a shopping area haven. Presumably that is the fate of the Hoffman LaRoche campus. In it's day it was a city unto itself.

Time Sensitive

The timber platforms are pretty interesting. I'm not sure when the FDA nixed that but it was only stainless steel framing and grating in the mid-'80s when I worked as a cosmetic chemist.
