Discussing the meth theft with Walt, Jesse argues that they need to accept a little "breakage" as the cost of doing business. Meanwhile, back at the White residence, Walt shows Skyler the crumpled cigarette package he retrieved from the toilet, and accusingly asks if she knows anything about it. Skyler later admits to having smoked three-and-a-half cigarettes before disposing of the pack and says that of course she feels ashamed. Walt says it's unlike her, but Skyler dismisses this, asking, "How would you know?".
Badger, Skinny Pete, and Combo proceed to sell meth throughout the city. Things go smoothly until Skinny Pete finds himself held at knife-point by a pair of junkies who steal his meth and his money. Walt confronts Jesse about the matter: while Jesse tries to write off the loss as "breakage", Walt demands he take action.
Comparable strides in technology were demonstrated by Methods EDM Division. Although EDM has enjoyed great gains over the years, there still are conditions that can bog down even the most advanced wire EDM machine, says Charlie Quillen, EDM Division product manager. Most common is wire breakage due to changes in workpiece thickness, which can cause the machine to supply an excess of cutting current, creating an unstable discharge.Most current-generation EDM controls adjust the cutting current to match the thick part of the workpiece about to be cut, often resulting in wire breakage in thinner areas during the cutting operation. While automatic wire re-threading may keep the operation going, this condition makes it impossible to achieve the most efficient cutting speed for the project, Mr. Quillen explains. 041b061a72
