Insurance on kits? How did Heath/Heathkit stay in b'ness so long? I guess folks were less litigious back then? So the necessary insurance was more reasonable? I dunno. I only know I built 3 of their TV's plus many other kits, and it was great. Never burned the house down either.
Honestly tho, Heathkits were not cheap. With all the instructions, packaging, idiot-proofing, etc., it cost a lot to produce a kit. Still, enjoyed doing it.
