Current progress, 3 weeks in.
Earlier this month, I started another big project. It’s a huge lighthouse scene that my late father-in-law started. He also made this super clever scroll-stand, that is a delight to use. This piece has been staring at me for years, and I want to do it justice. #crossStitch
When we were soldering, he never told me to “be careful,” but he would tell me a story: A previous grad student had made a habit of soldering without safety glasses. One day, he heard a “pop!,” then a scream. The solder had fizzled and a piece of molten metal had flown into her eye.”
I always wear safety glasses.
Before he retired, Mr. Magnet helped me out with getting my experiment operational. He taught me how to set up relays for my interconnect and auto-shut off system so that I would be safe. Together, we got a little shocked, caught a soldering iron on fire, caused some minor water damage, and welded with a torch. His circuit diagrams were works of art.
