My efforts in the shop today reminded me why I hire a specialist. Last week I stuck a work light onto a stand and was pleased with myself. Well, I got less pleased with myself when I realized that plugging and unplugging my light was not really very handy. My inspiration!, wire a plug into the light's power cord, easy peasy lemon squeezy, right? Not for me.
Not because it is a difficult technical challenge, but because I an all thumbs around none wooden mechanical devices. If some one had filmed my efforts to install the light switch on Black and White film they could have sold as the sorry of Laurel and Hardy's klutzy brother.
|the switch in all its glory, and it works fine.|
I fumbled around for so long doing a five minuted task that I didn't even lose my temper because I was to busy laughing at myself.
The end result is a work light stand with a dedicated switch that is properly wired making the work stand easier and safer to use. A side benefit is being reminded that anything bigger than this needs a professional.
