tonight at 9pm

Posted this in the wrong place before. But tonight at 9pm the show "how its made" on science channel (sci) will go through the process of making an electric vehicle charging station. It should be interesting

Juicebox has a video on YouTube.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Thanks!

Fortunately, I had a season pass for this show (to only keep a few eps) on my TiVo. It had already recorded it. If I hadn't known, it'd have been auto-deleted.

OP, you might want to edit the title to be a little more descriptive...

Can anyone that watched it comment? We missed it, but it is on again tonight at 1am PDT, so I need to know if it is worth getting up for it. Probably not, but just in case...

The show is called "How it's Made".

Saw it and was underwhelmed, as I am with most of the topics this show. Two controller boards (probably for EMC) nice aluminum forming presses by "the worker", lots of Phillips head screws and - presto - an electric car charging station.

It was ok. It wasn't a must see, IMHO.

1 am PDT? Getting up for it? ;) I'm wide awake at 1 am local time (which is Pacific time for me). You gotta get a TiVo or other decent DVR. There's WAY too much good stuff on TV. No time to watch it all. Most of its on when I'm either not available to watch (e.g. working, asleep, not home), not in front of my TV or when I don't want to shift my schedule to catch something.

The company was clearly in Canada and probably Quebec. Interesting they briefly showed a Spark EV.

Canadian TV, I believe, has a Canadian programming content mandate (their attempt to avoid becoming the de-facto 51st state), and that show is - effectively - subsidized by it. So I don't know if they show exclusively Canadian made goods, but most of it is.
