I can’t thank Shannon enough for his description of why some of us can’t get into the shop.
Describes me to the “T”.
Listening to that made me get back in the shop today after about 2 months of watching what I could be doing instead of actually doing it.
Love your show, listen every week.

I agree with John Di Martino. Shannon is correct! I spend 80% of my available “shop time” watching and reading about what I could be doing. It’s good to hear that I’m not the only one. I’m back in the shop!

Thanks so much for the breadboard end construction discussion!!! As you were able to tell I got myself into something I thought I understood, usually I understand everything I know. I didn’t know I didn’t know how to do this, hmm? What else don’t I not know I know?

Thank goodness for the WT crew to help me out!
