What do I win? Great episode, Chris!
You’re DQ’ed. You saw me take the picture 😉
I believe the picture is of a burn of some sort made into the surface of a table covered with vinyl wood veneer. The burn could be from a cigarette, but given the nature of this blog I am guessing it is from a switch that shorted out
Christine!!! You are partly correct! That is indeed a burn on a table, but not from a switch shorting out. It absolutely has to do with switches (and being frugal). AWESOME GUESS!!!
Something hot like a soldering gun or hot glue.
Exactly Jeannette! Nice teamwork! Christine got the first part and you brought it home! We were making our own switches using a soldering gun to make the connections!!! Someone, not me, no never me, put the gun down on the table…more than once!!
