Yeah, got the stuff, but my hands are no longer as steady as they
used to be, nor my eyes as keen. At one time, I used to be able to
wirewrap 0.100" boards without assistance. Now, it's a struggle
using a 10 power loupe.
I use adapters for things such as uCs and CPLDs and can do those
right most of the time, but occasionally, I mess up and have to start
all over again. Thank heavens for my Wood's metal desoldering trick
or I would have made garbagge out of the adapter boards.
