Who did it in the sixties using a hole in the road? :beamup:

I suspect holes in the road were used for several things in the sixties ;)

Some of my musical works.
I had a weird time in Surrey once, but that was a drummer's fault.

Being (nearly) serious for a moment, in the 60s most kit still used bakalite and/or paxolin, so could shrug off seriously high temperatures.

And, Diallyl phthalate Will, commonly used as a slighly flexible insulator in valve bases and was fairly resistant to soldering heat.
Rather restricted in use now, bit of a health hazard it was found.

I LOVE the smell of Paxolin when you drill it! Not so good as a PCB substrate especially the thin, cheap crap they put in hot, cheap valved tellies!

Related if not directly relevant; as a young child, and (probably as a result) ever since, I always loved the smell of oil based paint!
