January 1957 Popular Electronics

January 1957 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe [Table of Contents]People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
McWatts was an electronics-themed comic that appeared in Popular Electronics back in the late 1957s. Artist Carl Kohler's main character is a stereotypical Joe Sixpack electronics hobbyist who always dreams up unique way to deal with situations. This edition shows McWatts' way of keeping the kids from using his prized tools as toys. I was always leaving my poor father's tools laying around the house and too often in the yard where they would get rained on and start to rust. If I were him, I would have been harder on me for repeat offenses.
