Haven’t done anything terrifically exciting lately, but a few repairs and such have been done in the past couple of months.
The neighbor is building a new deck.
Unfortunately his palm sander died in the middle of sanding those cool tables…
I pulled out the old switch and found one in my junk box that was similar. Cut off the lever arm.
And trimmed the lug to fit.
Needed the hole embiggened to fit, but a bit of the case cracked. No problem though. Now it works fine and he’s been using it for a couple of months.
The old switch.
The contact was fouled…so it wouldn’t allow current to flow. So another tool saved from the landfill.
Bought a USB MIDI keyboard at Goodwill but the USB wasn’t working but MIDI was.
Someone had whacked the USB port and cracked the board.
Scraped away solder mask.
And solder bridged. Probably should have added some epoxy to mend the crack but it should be fine.
And now it works.
