Hello guys,

all of us know whats inside a Crystal - Quartz !

i needed a 11.0592 MHZ Xtal badly for a project, when i checked my table i found only one and that too with a broken lead. since i didn't have time to rush to the electro stores i started to cut open the crystal with a sharp chisel, my aim was to solder a wire from inside.

eventually i messed up and broke the fine disc like quartz crystal, the fine disc is covered in a fabric sleeve may be to protect it from temperature effects. here are the pics of the operation that went wrong !

@ arun,
my ex boss ( an ex-IITian and an Mtech ) once made me realise the importance of an engineer by asking me this scenario:
If u place a doctor, a surgeon, an engineer and an architect (all excelling in their profession) in the middle of a remote place like a desert or the amazon forest, who do u think has the best chances of surviving it or getting out?
the answer is obvious, an engineer of course!! !dance .
So u took the right decision my friend. ( fortunately for the forum )
