Yup, sure did. Heathkits, Lafayette, Knight and Olson got plenty of my paper route money. I still have one of my earlier projects from over 50 years ago, a 5-tube superheterodyne radio. The tubes are increasingly hard to come by but it still works!
Unlike the muzzie yute, I never built anything that could be mistaken for a bomb.
Uh... we’re talking about a public school. The very same public schools that expel children for pointing fingers, chewing poptarts, or saying “bang bang” with chicken nuggets.
Stop being a retard.
That’s only because you couldnt fit a bunch of tubes and a transformer into your pencil case. I built lots of timers and other fun digital circuits, and squeezed them into any small package I could make work. I even concealed an SMT miniature LED display in a pair of Ray-Bans.
You are just discriminating against a kid whom likes to tinker with electronics. It’s not right. Save your venom for the real bad apples.
