of good wirecutters......One of my long delayed projects is rewiring this ceramic xmas tree that the bookkeeper gave me back in 1975.....she put the date on the bottom with her initials on it. :)I struggled with needle nosed pliers to get the stripping off....awful....a long time ago I was a pro of sorts, but again, it was a long time ago....I have wire cutters in the garage....for different gauges....I didn't want to walk down there so I struggled some more and got it done and wrapped the two posts when I discovered one of the parts had to come through the base of the thing and tighten the nut and I had it on top of the base......gezus! so I take it all apart again and struggle with the frigging wire......oh wait....when I thought it was set to go, I plugged it in to see if it worked it did............I found out when i took it apart that the thing was still plugged in when I grabbed the two wires and sparks and smoke flew........Lord Almighty, they're coming to get me!!!!!!!! I stood back and looked at my fingers and then caught my breath.....this is how accidental deaths happen.....so I put it aside for tomorrow when I have the proper equipment and I can focus on one job at a time. :)Oh and btw, I took those 2 pairs of pants to an alterations shop this afternoon.MsFixIt and forget it or forget it and fix it.:)LD
