A quote that just made my day!

"You would be a great Cuban"       -Tomas Hernandez

My wonderful (Cuban) friend -Tomas Hernandez, said that to me after I told him about how I repaired broken rocker switches on my 1950's Ascor strobes.

Alluding how I can pretty much fix/repair old technology from the fifties, just like his fellow Cubans back in Cuba!

I am honored to be compared to those whom have survived all these years with very little outside support. A lot can be learned from their ingenuity and tenacity, and the technology of the time they have been stuck in.

Things were built to last, and if they broke, you learned how to fix-it. Not like the way we live now, in this disposable/replacement culture.

 
 Rocker switches repaired with epoxy and machine screws, replacing broken Bakelite and rivets.
