I got caught sitting doing reflow soldering on an upturned clothes iron balanced on my lap.
The only thing my wife said was "Have you done a health and safety review of that process?"

[I now clamp the iron to the desk - it's actually a lot easier]

I get the " don't solder in the house, you'll burn it down" alot from my mom followed by " go do that outside" as I look at the rainy,snowy, usually shitty weather outside : /
But by far the hardest part is convincing her that its actually productive learning not " playing with lights" lol

BTW, some of you have a "work bench" or "hobby corner" ? Lucky me, I have a nice basement room and a strong wood table to do my "hobby" works...

PS: No wife yet... =(

Keeping a well isolated and properly equipped 'man cave', while still enjoying the many advantages of wife and family is one of the more noble of quests one can partake in ones journey through life. Tread softly, and remember that the journey is at least part of the reward.
