What is being done is quite simple. Antique radios, etc. Nothing fancy, If he can draw a box with some knobs and an old circular radio dial, it will be enough. And some very simple circuit diagrams. Again, nothing fancy. It ain't art. Just some diagrams to help a hobbyist.
Soooo...., here are my questions.
1) Any collection of electronic components, old radios or circuitry available any where? Again, this is old stuff, tubes, early transistors, big knobs, radio dials, etc. No need for circuit board design or anything like that.
2) Any words of wisdom to become sketchup semi-proficient within a few days?
I don't feel all that good about my honey volunteering me, but I need to get some basic sketchup skills together for a number of projects. So, I won't bitch too much.
And hey, those old radios had wooden cabinets. Soooo, it is sorta woodworking related. ;-)
