Ever since I was exposed to electric stuff in the 9th grade I have never understood it. Might as well be magic for all I understand it. I can turn stuff on and off, replace a fuse, and basically that is it.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Plumbing and electrical are two (of many) skill sets not possessed by me. Current or liquid, doesn't matter. When I'm done, it leaks....no matter how much duct tape I use.

EXACTLY.I doubt that it was meant as a joke.

The resistor is a diode.

This has been a great thread. I, like many of you, totally admired Norm and the Rosendals and would set my TV viewing schedule around their programming times. Now I only occasionally catch an episode of This Old House. Most of my video consumption is via YouTube. Jon Peters is probably my current favorite for woodworking projects. I subscribe to many of the others noted in this thread plus many others, but have grown weary of the increased sponsorship videos.

I don't know what the issue is with this site and the loss of the daily emails, but the lack of push notifications will keep my involvement lower than it already is. There's too much interesting content on a variety of topics elsewhere vying for my attention. A router is only one tool in one's tool belt.

Projects are still at the heart of my woodworking interest. Currently I'm finishing a set of decorative corner shelves for our daughter and have an ongoing major kitchen remodel project going. All of this gets interrupted by frequent international travel.

As for decline in hobby interests, add motorcycle and car clubs to the list.

Sorry for the long post, this thread struck a responsive chord.

8 AM? My wife was involved with preschool daycare for 32 years. During those years, she got up at 5 AM to open the school at 6:30. As assistant director and director, this evolved to getting to school at 6 AM to fill the ice jugs and get disposable cups for the classrooms. They removed the water fountain as it did nothing but spread germs and viruses. It worked! The next problem was parents who sent sick kids to school! Now if she sleeps to 6 AM, she considers herself fortunate.

Maybe it's an AC battery, Harry.

A diode passes current only in one direction, but that coil only has two connectors, to boost voltage, it would have to have two coils, one inside the other, which would require four connections. Been a long time since I dealt with electronics, so I may be missing something. I still think it's a joke.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
