I think it's trying to tell me I need a better router - this cheap one is battering the hell out of the rollers due to the poor spindle /bearings.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

The 25min drum solo on side 3 of the 2nd album was a bit hard going though, Dave ?

This one seems to hit the sweet spot with the new speaker :

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Light stuffing of long-haired wool inside throats around both driver input, this evening.
Seems to have had beneficial effect. Very good.
Delay in horn output is more clear now though. Not great on rhythm-critical stuff.

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

They look great mark... They ? :D It . Thanks. Actually not finished cosmetically, need some final trimming when I get a new router bit, and all the ( 16 ) holes on the 2nd side panel plugging with dowel as I've done on the first side. The some varnish or wax. They appear a diversion compared to th...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Good info, saved for ref. Bit much to do in the context of this experiment though. Today, struggling with a cold, managed to get this done and playing : Double_Final1.JPG Apologies for crappy picture, I was shaking with fatigue when I took this - Double_playing.JPG Need time to comment, the rear dri...

Re: We are delighted to announce ...

Shoddy !
Nice valve boxes too - I guess they were just hanging around and you had nothing else to prop underneath ? :)
I bought some 71a's years ago to drive 300B but ended up using 45's.

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I've been catching the ToB highlights most evenings, It's on straight after the Vuelta coverage. The juxtapositioning of the two certainly highlights how the ToB doesn't quite measure up yet; things like where people get away with leaving their cars on the race route and a KoM finish blocked by an ...

Re: lathes

Good effort ! I should point out, that in Germany a few years ago I saw a lecture from the owner of Moore Precision in the US. They make diamond-turning lathes for optics. He had a slide with period photographs showing various landmarks in their machines. There was one from 1959, explaining that usi...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

The contents list is amazing - and over 1000 pages. I thought it had started to go wrong with the edge nearest the router base as it doesn't look smooth? Looking forward to hearing about your impressions with this project. No, that front edge had not been done yet, it was just rough-cut. ps. The int...

Solsbury Hill !
Having listened to the rest of the album on Youtube though, Chris, it seemed a bit patchy. What do you think ?

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

...9...10 A piece of half-round beading glued to that gouge, now. Thanks Ray. Also found an old straight end-roller bit that had a good bearing, and I was able to sharpen it, after a fashion. Nearly there with this now. About ten screw holes to drill and some through-wires from the front driver to i...
