Default Be careful out there.

Replacing the step relay while chasing down my voltage drop. See pictures. Blood has been sacrificed. Also, be careful in the compartment under the booth in the steps. The place where the main ac source switch is. This is where the step relay lives. Somewhere along the line while tossing things in that compartment and pulling things out someone broke the relay center pin. I found that out when I tried to plug the new relay in. The damage done to my hand was while trying to get What was left of the center pin out of the base using a hooked pick. After gluing my hand back together, I was successful at getting the pin out of the base using a drill bit. The pin is keyed so it was rather a pain in the butt but finally got it out. Be careful out there!

That looks par for the course. I tend to use more superglue on myself than all other projects combined.
