This would be a fine day for driving up to Felton and jumping in the river.
Alas, it's actually a day for slaving over a hot soldering iron and/or metalworking tools, as I repair a test station for a client.
The metalworking tools shouldn't be required, but apparently someone overseas either applied very vigorous percussive maintenance or decided to use the Big Wrench to remove a set of standoffs that I'd carefully Loctited in place when last I had my hands on the thing, because those standoffs were never meant to be removed, and there's no plausible reason for removing them. So, however it happened, there are four standoffs with their male-threaded ends sheared off, and four holes obstructed by Loctited-in-place, sheared-off threaded bits. This calls for a bunch of rework. And: More Loctite!
My garage lacks air conditioning. All things considered, I'd rather be playing in a river.
Taking a cooling-off break. Tomorrow morning: soldering-iron time. (Well, mostly solder paste and hot air. Through-hole connectors get the iron.) Then some Very Special Glue, and testing.
Also: While I was out & about rounding up stuff for the repair project, I stopped by the local store of a supplier I've been using for a couple of decades or so, and the clerk noted that not only do I have a longstanding account with them, I'm even on Net 30. Which is interesting, because if I recall correctly that open account was the result of a mixup back in the 90s, and to the best of my knowledge I've never actually qualified for it. Oh, well: I guess having such an account, in good standing, with a big-name vendor is a good thing?
