    My informants tell me that there's soldering going on but I demand pictures!

    I am just above beginner solderer, but I am very very curious about the xprotolab. at $35, it is not very expensive to try

      It's a real challenge but you're welcome to try. If you'd like to give it a shot, I recommend coming at 7:00 sharp so you can get special instructions before the place fills up.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
