I did that a while back. By the time the parts showed up, I'd forgotten why I'd bought them. :Rolling:

Cast iron and stainless cookware, baby! And no bloody teflon!
I blame it on a misspent youth finally catching up :) Nice usage of the double birdie, BTW :Rolling:

I really need to regain my electronics knowledge from years past. All that Coast Guard ET/TT school training has been going to waste. The TT (telephone tech) school stuff is deader than a dodo tho, given the rise of digital telecomms. Once I left the CG, most of my time was spent in computers. I gained a lot of new skills, but the old ones withered.
