    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Having worked for both government contractors and commercial firms, I have found that the government contractors are much more aware of carefully tracking all capital property assets and following rigid procedures for acquisition and disposal of these assets.

    Tom, I would suggest that you salvage the chucks off of the old drills if they are real USA made Jacobs. The newer chucks don't hold the bits very well, and Jacobs has shifted production from Connecticut to China.

    Keep it up, Tom. Maybe I will leave it all to you---it is only a 40' x 30' shop!

    I hate to say it, but we are a rapidly dying breed. Heck, I cannot even find anyone that wants my test equipment, tube amps, parts, etc., when I expire!

    When you have worked with tube amps for many years, you develop the respect for and the skills required to safely work with high voltage. We old timers hope that these traits transfer to the younger generations of electronic hobbyists. Additionally, a number of years working with high power...

    Well, I have been absent due to a stay in the hospital for an angiogram. It took the cardiologist an hour or so to find my heart, and 5 minutes to conclude that there are no blockages. I have cheated the grim reaper once again, and am back to add my wisdom to this thread.

    I would be happy to help you understand the utility of the 25 x 10 ex 6 tubes that you have hoarded. You need to understand that lighting the filaments does not produce audible bliss. Please send a gross of your tubes to me so that I may evaluate your application.

    Obviously, it depends upon your benchmark for achievement. That is why I embrace artificial intelligence, since it appears that natural intelligence is a lost ability.

    In my career, I met far more over educated under achievers than I met under educated over achievers. I place myself in the latter category.

    Thanks to @Paladin79, my board arrived safely and been employed doing what it does best. The board is reversible, so it has indents to hold tasting glasses on one side, and old fashioned size glasses on the other. @Paladin79 exceeded his normally fine woodworking skills in producing this...
