    Oh...there's no thinking! Now it's just waiting...

    4 to 6 weeks before it shows up. Then I put "the master plan" in place. B)

    I like to solder -- nothin' like a little lead vapor to stimulate the senses.

    Heavy flux is a rush.

    I love the smell of flux in the morning.

    These last couple of flux posts are flummoxing me.
    Yes -- flummoxing flux.

    Something else you can use your Crack for - it makes a great pre-amp!

    Make sure everything but the power amp is on, volume down and warmed up before you power the amp up.

    You'll need a cable:
