Our massive power converter shorted out again. I hauled this thing over from the United States in carry-on baggage a couple of years ago. Its a 2000-watt converter that let's us run Pam's kiln on European power, and it's essentially two giant coils of wires. Rather low tech. I soldered it last week, but it still wasn't working and I needed circuit testers to find out what else was going on. With Pam's glass party yesterday it was time to finish the job. Tonight I had Martin over with his box of tools and he fixed the problem in short time. It's good to have neighbors like Martin.
