    Maybe it was my up bringing or I am a different breed. Im 30 been on my own since I was 16. Was in the Marine Corps then came into this trade. When I started I knew I was going to get shit pay and shitty jobs. Ive been it now for 7 years and I still work the most hours, do the crappy jobs, because no one else will do them and always wanting to learn more and more every chance I get!!! I have a house 2 brand new trucks and atvs etc. I know guys I went to school with still living at home doing nothing with their lives.

    So I hate hearing and seeing people my age who have an excuse on why they dont want to learn a trade, but blame everyone for their 100k student loan debt for their literacy degree.

    Anyone have any thoughts?
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??
