I’m super bummed. I got called in to teach a class tomorrow no one else can teach because of an instructor sickness. I was really looking forward to this. I’m sorry about the late notice but didn’t want you guys waiting on me to start. I’ll see you all at the May meeting.
BIG thanks to Ed for sharing his knowledge, ideas, and toys with us today. Valuable lessons were learned (Like why the heck did I get that crappy soldering iron when I have a good soldering gun that I should actually be using?). And thanks to the club for pizza and donuts.
2x on the Knipex. Ryan turned me on to them back in 2006. So far I have the 10" regular pliers and the 10" smooth jawed pliers. Can't beat the grip ratio, especially with arthritic knuckles.
I liken them to someone hanging onto a rope connected to a tree branch being cut off overhead (and going for an unexpected ride), as compared to wrapping the rope end a couple of turns around a handy mounted half ring and being able to hold the rope lightly due to the friction.
