Sometimes

I could just kick myself !!!!!

Finished winding T3 for the PFR3A; and did a great job, if I say so myself. Now I get to do it all over again, because I cut the leads too darned short and they wouldn't reach the circuit board holes on one side!

Nuts!

Now I have to go to the electronics store on Saturday morning to purchase some 24 gauge magnet wire. There's not enough left to completely rewind T3.

Double nuts!

I've been building kits since 1979; and here I go and make a rookie mistake. Just goes to show you, lose concentration and even experience can't help ..... sometimes.

Just wait until you're a bit older, you'll start forgetting how many turns you've done half way through and have to go back and start again.

"I cut it twice and it's still too short!" I hate when that happens, but it happens very easily. You're doing a great job with your blog though. I ran across it a month or two ago and have been enjoying your posts. Keep up the good work!

Have a nice weekend.
