Back when if something went wrong (soldering an electrolytic cap in backwards, say) you could actually go to Radio Shack and buy useful parts from somebody who knew more than you did about electronics.

Now get off my lawn!

Radio Shack is another of my favorite things, although the folks that work there now are no where near as knowledgable as in the past. You can get lucky on occasion though.

YES! I loved HeatKit! My dad and myself would work on those kits when I was young.

Glad to see they're making a comeback. Get Kids interested in electronics and a great way for them and their fathers (and possibly mothers) to bond. Something we are sorely missing these days.
