Re: The Other 13E1 SE-OTL

Hi Ray, playing devils advocate, why go DC in the first place? I see no benefit from a noise (hum) point of view. The old man got his quiet as a mouse with it all in one box If it is in regard to having both ac and DC in one umbilical from the psu box then yes i can see it, but why not just have 2 a...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Just won a dual EDS 1000 direct drive motor on ebay. Comes with the associated platter, psu and controls, I reckon I can do something pretty special with it. Been after a good dd motor for ages to do a one off for myself and this particular motor has been the one I've been after. I looked at the pha...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Nope, I know how some of them (one of them particularly) operate and how much they can load premiums. I worked for one in the early 2000s and had huge row with the manager after they told me to load a premium up by a significant amount for someone simply to grab a load of profit out of it.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Looked at insurance for it and burst out laughing..... 2700 quid. Bare third party. Now I work...

Great album Got the buckingham nicks reissue, sounds exactly like Fleetwood mac sound after Buckingham and nicks joined, the genesis of what was to come. Actually a really nice album. Kiln ...

Re: MJ Statistical Regulator PCBs
