Back in the '80's I was a QC inspector and most of my day was spent inspecting pc board assemblies that had color-banded resistors. We had to have an annual color-blindness test.  One year, a co-worker failed the test - after passing it for several years prior.  Turns out he knew all along that he was color-blind but had successfully guessed and passed the test for years.

Rather than being fired for falsifying records (like his job application) he was given a desk job filing data.

When I joined the Navy in 1974, in spite of having an FCC 2nd class radiotelephone license with Radar Endorsement, solid electronics background and an ASVAB score that qualified me for nuclear power school, I had difficulty with the little dots ..  poof -- I went to meteorlogy school instead

It’s based of a CAT 966.

Are the buckets positionable ?  Any way you could pose one against a hopper ?  I think the mine uses 982s which is a little bit larger piece of equipment, but CAT still lists it in the same FEL file as a medium loader.

I’ll cut it free from the support material when I get home from work tomorrow and let you know exactly what it looks like.

So I didn't know they existed until today but there is a special type of sun glass that helps color blind people see colors. The most popular brand is EnChroma and I think they developed the tech back in 2002.
