Re: Little ceramic trimmer caps that always break... A fix.

Well, the key to good proofreading is to be able to see
the mistakes. And since my retina was damaged by my
vitreous humor pulling away... a present I got for my
53rd birthday..., I can't do that very well anymore.

I see a tiny magnified spot right at the center of vision
on my right (dominant) eye, that darts around as I read,
or inspect things.... So, when I read, I cannot always
tell the difference between a "n" and an "h", or an "i"
and an "l", or an "o" and a "b" or "d", g", ... without
serious study.

It's worse, of course the smaller the print. And, my brain,
and good vocabulary isn't helping me much, as my brain fills
in whatever word it can think of that fits the space.

My retina specialist says not to worry, it will only
get worse... especially if he tries to fix it.

I know you want perfection out of each of us, but I for
one, am not up to it anymore.

I do this gig for fun, and it is becoming less and less
fun as the nits get picked.

I think I'll go play with my tractors...

WElcome to the clbu.

As was pointed out, it is useful to get model numbers, part numbers, measurements etc. right, so as Barry reminded us, proofreading is king for those.

(And wrt to the measurements, if someone gives a timebase setting in nanosiemens per division, I cringe, but maybe it’s normal that a lot of people simply don’t know how to type measurements and any correction will be seen as nitpicking, so there is no learning either.)
