Certainly truth to this. I love the simplicity of traditional methods. So quiet and simple. I don’t know that I’ll be giving up my modern tools any tine soon but I’m definitely going to add some traditional tools.

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

Since moving in house from PP I’ve been astounded at how often business folks want to set up a zoom call to walk through contracts and rewrite language on the fly. Not only is it terribly inefficient, it leaves virtually no time to actually think through things, especially when dealing with long, complicated contracts for things like software purchases. Just wondering if anyone has any good tips for how to politely point out to people how bad of a process that is, assuming others face the same?

Let's talk dust collection. So I was under the impression that dust collection would clean up a lot of the sawdust. Right now, I'm using a shop vac. Currently, anything that doesn't get directed out the dust collection port piles up. Is that normal? Should I get a second shop vac?

For example, was belt sanding 100 stamp blocks. Stopped every 20 or so to clean up dust pulling up at edge of sander.

Minor project, but this board has been quiet lately. Amp chassis holder. Articulates to let you work on a chassis at a variety of angles. An amp chassis weighs a decent amount once you bolt all the transformers to it, and manipulating the chassis to solder inside it is a challenge. Hopefully this fixes that issue.
