Truck mufflers, huh! Wonder why we never tried that.

Maybe it was just the model we had, but unless I was working in a bucket on a strand I found setting the MS/2 up to be a pain in the butt.

OK. Now it's set up, and maybe I was improperly trained, but you couldn't really do a butt splice neatly - everything had to be set up in-line.

I already spoke about the size of the splice cases- enormous! Because the splice was so big you couldn't leave too much slack and if you had an "active" splice that you kept going back into, you were in trouble.

If you had a wire crimped in the comb you either had to redo all 25 pair or cut the pair out and scotchlock it.

So what did the boss see in it? Beats the hell out of me.
