You'll need a soldering iron, solder, tweezers, spotlight.
So that's at least FOUR non-coffee-shakin' hands.
Good luck!

This is a big country we live in. Ever hear of a gandy dancer? When I was up around nantuckett, I spent some time on a fishing boat. I've been to many places and done a lot of things. Moving around the west virginia mines, I heard a screaming siren. Destiny. You know in my travels around the country, I met a lot of tough, two-fisted men. You know bad luck waits for some men at every corner. They sure do a lot of square dancing... ah! I lost it!
