I am here. I am still alive. I did not fry like a pancake..(if only I was as thin as a pancake!) Seriously, though, as I stared at that big electrical panel, I was questioning my abilities and actually told my hubby I was walking away from this one...He said ok. I made mention earlier of my wiring book constantly reminding me that I wasn't messing with 120volts but actually 240 and it could take my life. He said, "then maybe you shouldn't do it" and I made sure he understood I was only mentioning the side-note because I wanted him to see what value I was; that I was willing to give my life for his dust collector! (I'm such a kidder) Anyway, I was going to walk away, but as I sat on his table saw, Indian style, (not as ladylike as I could've been, I suppose)
I thought and thought,
glancing over at that luminous gray box begging me to attempt untraveled territory. So, I suddenly had a brainstorm, called hubby on his cell and told him I had it figured all out. (I can laugh at this looking back)
After spending an hour in the electrical isle of Home Depot, (my 6 and 11 year old made me proud) I had my measly 10 items and went back to the shop to tackle the un-tackable! lol When I got there, nothing I bought was right! Ok, maybe the plug was right, but NOTHING else!! urg...
So, I took some old conduit off the wall that had no wire in it, because the old shop owners took the wire with them--(no clue why)---And, of course, now I wonder, why didn't I think of that before!!!?? WHY!!??? Of course, my hubby said he told me to do that before I went to the store! (I don't remember that!) So, he cut the conduit--(I do not use power tools because of Duet. 22) and he drilled holes for the handy box and so I wired it all. Then, I went to clip in the new breaker and it didn't fit. I bought the wrong one! So, trip #3 to Home Depot! Good thing Depot is only blocks from our wood shop.
Then, I went to flip the switch and try it all out. I must admit, fear was gripping me. I was not as confident as I could've been, or have been in the past with these sort of endeavors. Mind you, worst case, is that the breaker switches off, just like it would at your house. No big deal but I was afraid I had done it wrong for some reason.
Praise the Lord, it all turned on swiftly and the hummm of the dust collector soothed my unconfident heart! hehe
I did it! Yeah!
Now, remember, we can do all things through Christ, according to His will, and there is such a wealth of info available to people now-a-days, that the people who don't educate themselves are doing themselves a dis-service, IMO.

The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.
Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component
The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.
The number to call for repair in all areas is:
Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.
No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
9. Self control
Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.
WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.
DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.
Thank you for your attention!
Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
