    Horology...

    They make watches that use batteries? Beer = Dupont Saison in a DFH glass, blasphemy I know but I don't think Sam would mind. Watch = Helson, small boutique company from Europe that only sells online. Most would never see one in the wild or know the name. https://www.helsonwatches.com/shop.php Lots of their watches are tributes/knock-offs of classic dive watches. For example mine, if in black, would look suspiciously like a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms....but I'm not trying to fool anyone with that illuminated skull. Just a weekend goofing around watch. Back to my Breitling, Black Bird Big Date for work today. Just the glass

    Horology...

    Nic day for Belgium beer on the deck. Lots of sun to fire up the lume.
  3. I seem to remember some story about a speeding ticket or you Prosecuting him or a cocaine fueled hunting trip "up north" that took a turn for the worse. Maybe it was all just a dream. JK, I do remember your paths crossed on opposite sides of the law. The rest is kind of fuzzy. I thought that original remark would make you smile.
  4. I missed all the fun, but a win is a win. Go Blue! Speaking of Go Blue....seems like there is one less of us to enjoy "Go Blue". What the hell happened? I spend 8 days on a beach in the Bahamas you old farts forget how to behave?
  5. Agree 100%. Every time I go back to Michigan I want to scream "why are you being so #$%^& nice to me!?!? Truth be told. One of the nicest experiences in my life with, a stranger was in Jetmore Kansas. Class act, that lady was.

    I was thinking I needed to go copper and flare fittings all the way. I guess that is old school. Appreciate the heads up on the brittish/Euro fittings. Are those tool-less fittings call John Guest fine and dandy as long as they are installed correctly? There is a dedicated cutter and it is only $9. Seems like a worth while purchase. With this.... https://www.chriscoffee.com/products/pressure-regulator-valve?variant=12056140382244 and this https://www.chriscoffee.com/products/bspt-to-john-guest-fitting?variant=30394102284324 I think I am mostly home free. There are check valves in both 1/4 and 3/8 and 1/4 to 3/8 adaptors. So it seems like I can easily move from 1/4 at the fridge to 3/8 the rest of the way and that first link gets me to my intended hook up.
  7. I rode my bike through both. Missouri is hilly, Kansas flat. Both inhabitants are a step down from Ohio which I did not think was possible. The only thing worse is Texas and Florida. Did I leave anyone out? I'll give the tie breaker to Missouri. That arch is pretty cool. Nifty elevators/tram.

    It goes to zero so I don't know how it can start at 2....but probably better to look elsewhere. I'm seeing some John Guest fittings that go 3/8 BSP to 3/8 tubing like my 1/4 RO tubing....what ever that is called. Seem promising. Looking at the start of my RO system I believe there is a 3/8 to 1/4 reducer as it branches off to run under my kitchen floor to span the width across the room to the refrigerator. Thoughts on 1/4 Tee at fridge to 1/4 to 3/8 adaptor which keeps John Guest fittings with the plastic no tool tubes and fittings all the way to 3/8 John Guest to 3/8 BSP? From there I would just have the intended stainless hose the provided.
  9. So this is what I dug out prior to seeing the above post. You pick. If there needs to be multiples to make it fair just let me know. Starting upper left: Monkees - Looks like never played Historic Performances recorded at the Monterey Int. Pop festival Otis Redding and The Jimmy Hendrix Experience - Looks to have never been played Ted Nugent - Just because I know you two have a history....this one is coming no matter what else you pick B. B. King Newport Jazz Festival 1972 - Looks perfect Horace Silver Quintet - You gotta take a little Love - Still sealed!!! Bluenote Jems of Jazz - looks brand new Aerosmith Rocks - Just because I saw them at CoBo All are from my not yet gotten to and probably never will pile.
  10. I did not even know they are playing. I don't pay much attention till tournament time. I do like Blue's new coach. I'll actually be flying on Saturday to see my Sparty-Sister. I'll gladly take you static free LP. Let me go down to the archives and see what I can offer up, even though I probably don't need to bother. Any preference on genre? Perhaps we need to take this to a new thread where more public eyes will see you get and green get a beating put on them.
  11. I agree they are a nice looking table. That Basis Reflex clamp might just be the nicest piece of engineering I've ever seen. Simple, elegant and beautiful in its function. This is from a few night back. I'll look for one wider out for the entire table.

    I think this might simplify things. Do you agree that if the 3/8 BDP male fitting is on the out put side would simply connect my existing hose (stainless in first post) directly to the machine? If so then I just need to get my RO shut off valve to the regulator https://www.wholelattelove.com/products/bwt-inline-pressure-reduce-m-3-8-x-f-3-8-2-8-bar

    I'm in the country on a well, so no Fluoride/chlorine pretty tasty water but lots of Iron/sediment. We have a softener and whole house filter up stream from the RO system. Like you said, peace of mind as the Espresso machine was not cheap.

    Yes, Espresso Machine has male 1/8 fitting as the water inlet to the machine. The added wrinkle of Water Pressure Regulator is my machine requires water pressure to be between 1 and 1.5 Bars. I'm guessing my RO water supply line to the Fridge is more than that. So far my research suggest to NOT connect Espresso machine directly to water supply. Cut off ball valve for extended times away. RO Filter>>Tee to faucet and Fridge>>Tee at Fridge>>Cut off valve>>Pressure Regulator>>1/8 BSPP>>E Machine

    RO machine or Espresso machine? If RO isn't it all the same? That ebay link seems to have lots of connections and any extra tubing I'd need. If Expresso, why?

    And this https://www.ebay.com/itm/10-PK-1-4-QC-Fittings-Ball-Valve-Y-L-I-T-for-RO-Systems-15-Ft-Tubing/164062738411 will get me everything I need to make my Fridge's RO line have a Tee and Shut Off. So I just need to go from RO's Tee and 1/4" plastic line out to your ebay fitting.

    The 1/8 is what is on the actual Espresso Machine....smaller end of steel braided hose they provided. I'd guess I can skip that all together, the steel hose that is. what I really need if you are building my a material list is..... Current set up is RO filter has a Tee that goes to RO faucet and my Fridg's ice maker. It is at the fridge I want to install a 1/4 RO Tee and have that tee go to: Shut off valve>>Pressure Regulator>>Espresso Machine I've seen this used on other machines. Watts Lead-Free Brass 560 Water Pressure Regulator w/Gauge https://www.google.com/search?q=Watts+560G&sxsrf=ACYBGNQ7eAPHpDc16T-IFxlm6MNTYrQCww:1580938695067&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwib5dLKr7vnAhVtlXIEHfunAD4Q_AUoAnoECAwQBA&biw=1473&bih=983#imgrc=RkQSj3FCQIFkCM Pretty sure that in/out is 1/4 American (NPT) Threads as will Shut Off Valve I'm guessing.

    Yes Yes it is in the quote of first post. Expresso Machine link = https://www.wholelattelove.com/collections/dual-boiler-espresso-machine/products/ecm-technika-v-profi-pid Last paragraph = The ECM Technika V Profi PID comes with an angled single spout portafilter, an angled double spout portafilter, a single shot commercial basket, a double shot commercial basket, a blind filter basket, a tamper, a metal 1/8 3/8 BSPP hose, a cleaning brush, and an instruction manual.

    I did, I now understand what BSPP is. Europe vs US (NPT) thanks! Can you find me a 3/8 BSPP to 1/4 Reverse Osmosis type of quick connect? I'm not very plumbing literate?
  20. rplace

    Plumbing help

    Is that was BSPP means? The stainless hose small end goes to my new Espresso Machine so I don't have to keep filling the water reservoir. The bigger end 3/8 goes to water supply.

    Plumbing help

    I have a stainless steel braided hose that looks like this: The description of the hose says this: I need to connect the bigger end, I assume that is the 3/8 BSPP part of the description above to my Revers Osmosis line which I believe is 1/4 standard RO tubing. If I buy a Tee for the 1/4 RO line can I use this fitting to connect one end of the RO line to the above stainless 3/8 fitting?
  22. Then that is not NAS for backup
  23. Not really directed at you....but I do like the GIF. Trying to help those who might not totally understand RAID v Backup.
