    Resistance isn't futile - it's cumulative.

    It's not an armory thread if there isn't a runaway tangent on dad jokes and references.

    We tend to oscillate.

    I would have thought it was more intermittent.

    Is it really an oscillation? Is a square wave truly square?

    Here's my tangent - So, I was in ICU for about a week and a half back in the early eighties, but they knew that I was ready to be discharged once I had the intibator tube removed and discovered that by messing with one of the monitoring electrodes, I could make the heart monitor do square waves. ICU nurses were not amused. :)

    You were proving you were solid-state, not analogue. Systems were now normal.

    My ICU-story: went into anafalaxia from a bee-sting (I was 11). Nurses weren't happy when I woke up and switched the heart pad locations, then just took them off after a few minutes of further boredom.

    It can be a sawtooth wave when people are feeling sharp-witted and snarky.

    That's pretty in-sine.

    This time intermittently opened circuit, temporarily-solved by rotating tip but returned to intermittent. Discovered tip's brass end partially unscrewed and wire's contact partially unseated at angle. Reseated contact and tightened end - difficult because end is soft metal.

    This is what I was thinking as well.
    Wire solder joint to the cam.
    Sometimes the wire is touching it, sometimes lightly touching it, sometimes not touching it.

    Pop the wire out, rewire it, don't forget to clean the barrel and tip and your done. :)
