I have been using our kitchen table for constructing and repairing radios for the past sixty years, man and boy. In the old days there was no problem when my radio bits got mixed up with the ingredients for our supper – those large ‘lectrolytics and tubes were easy to fish out of the Sheperds Pie and Plum Duff. Nowadays its is much more problematic – for one thing my eyesight is getting worse, I have false teeth and the parts are getting smaller and smaller. Thinking about it though, the ’70’s and 80’s were the worst – I kept getting things stuck in my throat on a regular basis – those big LSI chips and discrete components etc. However, since the early-90’s it has been a bit better as those surface-mount components just go right through my system and may even help my digestion as increased roughage (saves on the All-Bran). I was wondering if any one else had been having similar experiences?
I have been skim coating the drywall in our kitchen, no room to work on radios, they get covered in drywall dust..
they say a picture is worth a thousand words so heres 3000 words:)
