Re: Latest vinyl 'finds'.

I can recommend the Flamenco museum if you ever find yourself in Malaga. Small with short opening hours but worth a trip. Malaga too for that matter - forget the Costa reputation, the old town is really nice.

Re: Noise cancelling headphones

Dunno.

I though the noise cancelling worked by microphones sampling the "background" noise and then feeding back into the headphones 180 degrees out of phase. If the technology is good enough I'm not sure why it wouldn't attenuate all noise???

I'm no expert though.

Re: Noise cancelling headphones

No great experience though I've had a pair for maybe 10 years, and noise cancelling transforms aeroplane flights. Got the missus a pair of Sennheiser 4.50BTNC last summer for a long flight and they seem pretty good. Bluetooth and wired so you can choose, and charges via USB IIRC. Sound pretty good I...

Re: Edingdale GT, the ultimate Edingdale? Probably

Philip Ramsey at Bluebell Audio is a legend! I though everyone with a valve amp would have bought something from him at some point, just shows. Years ago I remember buying a Hammond chassis from him and he told me a story about Hammond's QC being less that perfect sometimes and he'd selected a good ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Here's a photo of the workbench. Two MFT inserts on a bench knocked up with what I had to hand. Workbench.jpg And a closer-up of the top with dogs and rail for illustration. 45 degrees also dead easy, and any other angle the holes provides! I'm still a bit precious about the inserts so haven't cut i...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Missed the bit about which tablesaw - DW745. The fence is great - rack and pinion. It's a site saw rather than a fully fledged workshop table saw, but I use the track saw for converting large stock and the table saw for the stuff it's better suited to. My only real criticism of it is the slop in the...

Re: Nothing In Particular

The Festool Kapex is extraordinarily expensive. Crazy. And that's why so many knock Festool, because of the cost. I'll never buy one, nor the Bosch. That dewalt isn't cheap either, but recommendations count for a lot, and I'll consider it. Be interested to know if they're on offer anywhere? All mitr...

Re: Nothing In Particular

I have one piece of Festool - a TS 55 REBQ-Plus rail saw. It's brilliant. I was sweaty & shaking when I handed over my CC to buy it and the associated kit. I have the same and had the same sweaty experience! Don't regret a penny of it though. I bought it before a Dewalt table saw which was also the...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Agree with ed and Ant. The Evo will probably be fine for first fix, but there might be too much 'slop' for finish. I have a cheap mitre saw which is never accurate so pretty much pointless. I'm weighing up what to replace it with but I think the answer is going to be quite expensive. Perhaps it also...

Re: Nothing In Particular

All you can do in situations like this is concentrate on any positives. At least you didn't find all your gear in the cellar. (Not much of a positive I know...)

Re: Nothing In Particular

If the joists have woodworm and wet rot I'd be quite concerned about the floorboards too.

How about hiring a container and have it dropped off next to the workshop so you can empty and strip the lot out? Huge project, but I'd want to be sure there's no risk of further cross contamination.

Unless I've misunderstood the question this might be interesting:

It's about phase of the windings rather than their DCR.
