Jerry-Rigging = Fail

We gave it a good try. Our soldering job was solid, but there’s some kind of short happening behind the place where you plug the power cord into the machine. Husband is pretty sure he damaged it when he was yanking and tugging at the wires when we didn’t know they were wires and were trying to pull them out of the machine per the customer service reps instructions (before we just cut them). We took the piece off the back and got closer to the wires’ source, but the motor isn’t really coming out and, well, a new machine should arrive in a week or two. We’re keeping the curing tray and the water collecting thingie that sits inside it, but we are giving up on this unit.

It was a good unit, and we loved it, and it made us some nice dirt. We have noticed its absence, and we look forward to its replacement, but the original will always have a special place in our hearts. We will look for a special recycling place for you after all; perhaps the recycling fair next weekend will accept you. It made a loving home for the Dell Inspiron that I ruined with water, and I did see a bunch of lamps there, too.

Thank you, NatureMill Unit!

Turns out you can’t solder sterling silver, so my green amber earring also stays broken. But I ate a really good sandwich from Quiznos for dinner, so the day wasn’t a total wash.

The Prime Rib and Peppercorn Premium Sub

It was 980 calories of prime rib, mozzarella, sauteed onions, and mild peppercorn sauce goodness.
