Re: I am an electrical dunce........HELP

I recall years ago my high school shop/mechanics teacher telling us that 80-90% of the successful fix-it job was using the right tools. The rest was reading and understanding the service/repair manual.

I don't know first hand if they are right about the general state but I have seen "pro's" do some pretty bad work. That is why I go educated to do my own or at least know enough to recognize bad work.
