So I have melted from cute when Cassie here helped me turn a screwdriver, but now she’s also helping me with component level repair….
Warming up the Cattoscope….
Sniff snuff sniff snuff hey, what’s this? She stopped and gave me a look after sniffing right here….
Yep, that old Sprague cap has signs of creepage around its seal!
Clearly I am but part of a team of two, and the other member of the team has toes that look like beans.
I should also mention she likes turning on my GW/Instek GDM-8251A multimeter. I think she likes the feel of the power switch and the little relay plinks it makes as it powers up. She leaves it on a lot, so I have the default power up state set to come up with the display dimmed to reduce phosphor burn in. (It’s a thing with VFDs too! Look at your old VCR!)
