FINALLY, someone has shown me how to wire wrap. I've read many how to books on this subject and looked at photos and videos until I am bleary eyed and simply just couldn't do it...sometimes, the

easiest way to do something is to use simple words and motions instead of technical terms to teach someone HOW to learn or make something. I wish I had you for an algebra teacher, maybe then 40 years later, I wouldn't freak out when someone mentions that horrible "A" word..."ALGEBRA"! Thanks for making a clear & concise video, Karen Sorey
