Yes... probably... the fake, black, glued on switches on the same panel (and others).
I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see...

I'm challenging myself to make all of the controls actual controls on my console.  I will find a switch somewhere that will approximate the look of the cove molding.

In other news the cast comes off on Monday.

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

A kindred spirit indeed... though I've only managed most on my console.

Could be very good timing. ;) Glad you're doing well. :)

Thank you Crispin. It will good to have full use of my extremities again.  :D


Because Peter Davison would twist the Arcoelectric panel mount indicator lights like dials, I'm thinking of putting frosted acrylic rods inside the caps of the lights and turning them into knobs with the help of a set of rotary pots. And then have a light source next to them under the housing so the dials illuminate. ;D

Most of the lamps that I purchased were around $10 USD but for some strange reason the clear lenses are $16 each..... I may go with a slightly different arrangement of coloured lenses for my console.

So it was a bait and switch - they took off my cast and gave me a new one.

So another two weeks with the cast.

Just an examination today.

My father had an accident with a circular saw today. I'm told the surgeon was confident, and my father is having his thumb reattached.

I would like you all to stay safe, and always be cautious and careful with power tools.

Sorry to hear that,
It's an all too common accident, I'm afraid.

I hope your father makes a full recovery.

"Oh, my...(philosopher, prophet or deity of one's preference)!"

Still, it's amazing what can be accomplished medically these days.  I wish your father a speedy recovery with the minimum of discomfort.

Sincerely,

Bill

I got to see my father the first time since the accident. He is doing well, and in good spirits.

Is it just me, or does he have something of a "Jack Black" thing going on there?
