that sounds scary! make sure you double-check your work in daylight

this year, the kid's bikes have been built, although inside after they went to bed in nice lighting and in the comfort of our living room...

My builds are done. I had the parts for new computers delivered to work weeks ago and built them there. I get to sleep tonight
