  1. SVS PB 4000. Moving the two around for placement. The window shades are 1” honeycomb cellular. The rug is 3/4” thick.
  2. @dwilawyerPlease contact the reserved list privately or publicly. I never got any confirmation
  3. Use milk of magnesia on hot section bolts when installing. Dries to a lubricating powder..
  4. Got the bike home today. After two years of storage I replaced the battery, a little Marvel oil down the cylinders, some injector cleaner in the fuel and Walla fired right up.

    What I Got Today!

    Let's just say while looking for a bike for my son I came across a deal that I simply could not refuse. The Road King had been sitting in climate controlled storage for almost 2 years and the owner no longer wanted to pay the storage fees.

    What I Got Today!

    Got mine today. Go to Houston to get son's tomorrow.
  7. A tribute to Dave; some will get it
  8. Without acoustic measurements (yet, I have to learn that REW thingy) but , in general, where to start in this open room. From fridge wall to windows is 34' From wall behind speakers to wall near fireplace is 24' Ceiling is 10' Window treatments are 2" open cell
  9. McIntosh MX151 and MX160 here. I stay one model behind and bought the 160 when the 170 came out. I just wanted 4K pass to move to 160 and only use 5.2 in my set
  10. At the school house a lot of folks thought they had to perform the calculation when using an extension between wrench and socket. Since this does not increase the 'arm' there is no difference in applied torque. Application is only needed when the arm is shortened or lengthened. For the most part the difference falls with the allowed range but we deal with some torques as low as 3 inch lbs.
  11. Not that you need to be this precise on this but unless the 'adapter' is clocked 90 degrees to the torque wrench the overall effective length / torque is changed. M1 = M2 x L1 / L2 Where: M1 is the torque setting of the wrench M2 is the actual torque applied to the nut L1 is the normal length of the wrench L2 is the extended length of the wrench

    What I Got Today!

    Picked it up yesterday good as new. In total it cost me a 1/2 tank of gas; filled up then but dealer put 1/2 tank back in so I lost about $20 for the ordeal. I paid $1560 but was reimbursed about 15 minutes later. In effect I paid $20 for the dealer to detail the car. June 3rd comes the PPF and ceramic coating.

    What I Got Today!

    No word since Thursday when they planned to drop and flush the tank. Corporate gas company covering all costs directly to dealership
