Thanks everyone. It shows even old farts like me can find employment, even if it is only 30 bucks an hour, but not bad at age 78 I would say.
First week was a bitch though. Two major machines down with RF problems I thought I would never solve, turned out to be a cold solder joint and I got it going putting out 1800 watts, not bad for a 1500 watt generator🙂 Both sputtering tools had to have what we call 'wet clean' and each one had to have target change, a real pissser of a job, targets weigh about 50 pounds and has water flow, RF connections and such and is what allows us to deposit a hard coating of silicon carbide onto the thermal print heads where it needs it.
It coats about 1 micron thick coating where the paper gets scrapped across the head where the print magic happens. Anyway, that is mostly done so I can rest for a while and we are taking a trip from Pennsylvania where we live to see my wife's brother in West Palm down in Florida, he is in second stage alzheimers so it might be the last time he is lucid enough to recognize his blood sister. Sad to see, he was a colonel in the USAF, where I only got to E3 after 4 years🙂
