Understanding and diagnosing relays and solenoids.
A while back I sent the email below and you responded and I was excited when I heard my question on the podcast. The reason I am writing this email is to congratulate you on 1 year of podcasting and the difference you have made for me. I apologize as this email might be a bit long but think you need to read this as you are making a difference and getting the outcomes of why you decided to do a podcast.
A quick history, I worked in a rural bank for 18 years and managed branches and did agriculture lending. I did farm visits where you walked in the machine shed and you thought a 20 year old tractor just came off the factory line they kept such good care of it. I won’t tell you about the opposite of this. I have always been passionate about agriculture and involved in it.
Almost 7 years ago in my early 40’s I had a major medical emergency that left me totally blind. We live on a small acreage and have some machinery and always enjoyed working on them when I could figure out how to fix them. With assistance from my wife or young adult children I can still accomplish this. With your Idle Chatter, I have gained an unbelievable amount of knowledge. You do a great job describing how things work and what to check.
Sometimes after listening , I am like a deer in the headlights then put it in perspective that understanding how something works can be valuable even though fixing it may beyond our abilities for a number of reasons.
I want to say thank you for bringing us Idle Chatter and am looking forward to continuing to learn about machinery. Your new audio equipment sounds great. For a future episode have you thought about doing one on batteries? Minnesota has extreme temperature fluctuations but it sure seems like batteries do not last long on the machinery.
What a wonderful and meaningful gift your note was to me. A true blessing.
I want to thank you for not only listening to my show but for taking the
time to contact me.
In this business I am never looking for any accolades but as a Christian,
just a sign that my efforts are where the Lord wants them to be. You did
I would enjoy the opportunity to speak with you on the phone. You did supply

Also, I know it is cold now in MN, but I would be honored to send you a Hot
Rod Farmer t-shirt if you would like. All I need would be your size and
Thanks so much for your support. I hope we can talk soon.
Have a blessed day.
