Re: Salt & Vinegar?

I too used to fix electronics down to the chip level. Mainly digital stuff that used DILICS - Dual In-Line Integrated Circuits. usually 14 pin devices that contained 4 NAND gates or 4 NOR gates and the like. The rate of change was amazing my wife earned more money working piece work at ICL wiring backplanes for their mainframe computers, than I did designing them. Now all electronic assembly is done with robots or in China.
