[Histonet] The Good Old Days...

Seems like no one has touched upon the fine art of knife sharpening. Sometimes I felt like an executioner sharpening my axe to the point of splitting a hair. Heaven forbid if you hit a staple. That part of the blade was no useless for days to weeks until the daily sharpening ground it out. Life is pretty good when you just pull out another blade from the plastic box.

Hear hear!  I agree and was just saying I love hearing the stories (although I am not young).  Thanks all for sharing these memories and lessons!

I find weeding through the sarcasm can be profitable and in doing so have learned so much. What the old techs did on a daily basis, we only did in the practice lab and when the automated instruments and pre-made solutions that we have come to rely on fail, experience is so very valuable. Only by their blood, sweat and tears have we benefitted however, we have so far to go, let's do it together.
