    Making NO promises..

    But, in the next six months or so my life could be rather easier in terms of spare time and the energy I can find for other things.

    I have long considered offering a service on a VERY small scale of building those small, special gadgets that seem beyond most people now but are in fact quite easy to make.

    An example is a current thread where a guy really needs a 10k stereo pot in a tin with 1x 3.5mm jack in and 2X 6.35mm jacks out.

    Whilst not being in any way a "commercial" operation I would like to make a decent return on my time as I am saving up for a pair of Result Sixes!

    Dave.

    Obviously you're just itching to find a reason to fire up your soldering iron and smell the smoking flux!

    It amazes me that so few youngsters these days know what a soldering iron is. Everything today is prepackaged, wave soldered and encased in a plastic box. If it stops working, throw it away and buy another!

    Well, er, not quite! Soldering for me is now quite a strain with only one eye with central vision but I guess I shall get better with practice. My POSSIBLE future offer is based on two factors,
    1) I do want to be of help to those that have a problem but are not capable of making the kit.
    2) I DO want to supplement my income and get those monitors! Factors beyond my control mean we are now some 55 a week worse off and in the not too distant future another 100 per week will be stopped.

    NOT! Complaining! Even with that loss I have no financial problems provided I continue my careful existence. Once the 2k for the new jam jar is paid off I should still stay 'comfortable' but blowing another two bags on speakers will take some saving up for.

    Dave.

    Do you want to do it on a larger scale?
