I started (finally) building the new case today. Got most of the wood cut and rail holes drilled, then paused to wait for delivery of the last wood pieces which UPS said would be here probably by 5:15 and definitely by 9:00. It’s now 9:15. On a Saturday.
Meanwhile a thunderstorm came through here, including one lightning strike apparently within about 150 meters of here. And now the power’s off in half the garage. It’s the half containing the workbench and the half protected by a GFCI outlet which tripped off and now will not reset. I think it’s likely the outlet itself was damaged by the surge, although maybe there’s another scenario. Anyway, I can run power tools off an extension cord from the outlet that works, but the lights are off until the problem’s fixed.
Got a feeling tomorrow will not be devoted to finishing up a synth case.
