Tick Tock, You Don’t Stop

Time Master

Occasionally, I write something about gear.  Right now, I want to talk about a very handy little device that you may not think much about unless you need to do some precise time juggling and you realize only this can do it.  I’m talking about a time calculator.  It’s amazing what a time calculator can do.  I first saw them used by the Traffic & Continuity Department at an Armed Forces Broadcasting facility in Europe.  Then, I got one around the time of working for FEMA as a PA during Katrina and Rita.  That one disappeared, but I’ve had another one for about two years.  From Calculated Industries, it adds and subtracts hours, minutes and seconds, and converts time in decimals to hours, minutes and seconds.  It converts 12 to 24 hours settings and from A.M to P.M.  Also, a timer and a stopwatch.  A remarkable little device.
