    Good evening, how are you? Thanks for stopping.
  2. Im with Dtel here, the ruff milling can be done at the mill you speak of, then there is the finish milling, jointing, plaining, then using your router to put the tongue and grove on the edges. Not to mention the correct drying process. I put pre finished Acacia in winter of 18, 4 tools I wish I had at the time, jointer, planer, tongue and grove bits for my router, and band saw. Going back, I would have gone with raw Acacia. My buddy who helped me did a job where the customer wanted walnut installed, finished, than beat to hell and finished again. Guess it wanted an authentic ruff look. If I had a mill that could ruff mill 16' boards, I thought it would be cool to custom make flooring, but that would be tricky to get into certain houses.
  3. I had that one as well, I believe that have many been the one I left out in the rain. When I was replacing it with the 8, the sales rep talked highly of the 4 and stated how a lot of people would work their hardest keeping it going. My 8 is the first phone that I actually had dropped and broken the screen, oddly I have dropped it numerous times and never broke the screen, plus the battery dies 3 times as fast. Looks like I will be upgrading to the s20+, just looking for the right deal.
  4. Probably the same phone I had for 2-3 years, until about 3 years ago on the 4th, I left it out in the rain.
  5. I am not an iPhone fan, only because it would be a lot to switch. Getting an iPhone would make me feel like I need an Ipad, Apples computers, etc. I have had great luck with Samsung. Actually starting the same process, but with Sprint. My S9E or what ever series is 3 years old and the screen is now cracked.
  6. I can get stuck there for some time. I some day would love to hear a system like those.
  7. I should have locked this after Boxx's last post. Not that it matters really. Pretty close, still playing and getting ready for collage (whatever that looks like). She has been eyeing schools that have "band" as a class and where marching band isn't really part of it. Since the trumpet, she has picked up bass and keyboard.

    Android Auto

    I prefer to tether my phone in my Jeep versus Bluetooth, I get more features, simplified used, I believe this pulls up the android symbol.
  10. Ha, the welcome part maybe true, the helping part not so sure. Seems we all become more nuttier. But yes great resources around here.
  11. I am terribly sorry to hear this, my condolences to his family and friends that knew him well. I remember Bob more so when I first joined the forum back in 09. I really enjoyed his posting. His post of his systems always seemed intriguing and were inspiring. Heres to Bob and his contributions to life. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. That's a great way to hang ceiling panels. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Something doesn't seem correct, that center part doesn't look wide enough.
  14. At 38, I have been and off and on smoker. Its odd how they say the first 3 days is physical and the rest is mental. I was a pack a day smoker up to about 13 years ago. Came down with a nasty cold, slowed down to about a half a pack if not less. Eventually giving it up cold turkey one week. Didn't smoke for about 4 years and for some reason the urge came back. I will go all week not smoking, come the weekend, its like I never quit. This last year or two have been the hardest, not really sure why. Some put it that I am a social smoker, but oddly enough if I am out with friends who do and don't smoke, I will stay in with the non smokers and not smoke. Seems to be more warm weather and sitting on the deck as when November hits, I rarely go out for a smoke, if at all until about March/April. When I watch shows/movies where people smoke, it gives me the urge, almost like I think its cool or something. I agree, I never understood how we or other people stand the smell of smoke in their house or car. My wife and I stopped smoking in the house and car years ago. As my wife and I find ourselves smoking less and less, you would think it would be easy to just stop, but its not.
  15. Maybe a little more than 1k, but look at McIntosh MC7106, I have a Parasound (not for sale as it has issues), HCA806. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Parasound-HCA-1206-Multi-Channel-THX-Power-Amplifier-6-Channel-Nice/274344017918?hash=item3fe02d7ffe:g:i50AAOSwlXdeozsV https://www.ebay.com/itm/McIntosh-MC7108-multi-channel-Amplifier-in-Mcintosh-Box-Versatile/303583539287?hash=item46aefd3057:g:L~8AAOSwqA1e0~cV Good luck with the search.
  16. If I remember correctly, DJKs push/pull design had a bull nose. To the op, I currently have both Cornwalls and diy Belles. As I love mid bass myself, I love both of these speakers and therefore you couldn't go wrong with either. I even have that same Eliptrac set up, however, I am using a different horn now. As for which one? Unfortunately you are never going to save time and money, because once you start building, you wont stop, just ask me how I know. Anyways, since you already have the mid and tweeter, think about your cost, simplicity of the build, and room restrictions. I purchased my Cornwalls, I only needed to build Belles. If I only had room for one set of speakers, I would go with Belles. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  17. Now thinking of it, I once asked if Tommyboy changed his user name to Dandoyen. @Chad anyway you can confirm this?
  18. Unfortunately I had the wrong gentleman, the gentleman I was thinking of was Dandoyen. Same story, he was being shipped off and we never heard from him. Then he popped up selling his gear. He had an unique story. Purchased Khorns, then Jubilees. After the Jubilees, he surprised his dad with the Khorns by setting them up in his dads listening room then leaving his laptop open to the page explaining his surprise. His dad then discovered his surprise by reading the forum, kind of cool.
  19. Same here, usually 3 out of the 4 seasons keeps me from not only listening to music with a purpose, but from posting regularly. Ironically, I'm on the forum multiple times a day. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  20. I use the k402 on top of Belle clones for left and right and k510 on top of lascala for center with all the same drivers, it works very well. Not with jubilee unfortunately Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  21. I dont want to get anyone's Hope's up as I would need to dig through my emails, but I believe tommyboy is alive and well. If memory serves correctly, he had gotten married and sold all his Klipsch gear and may be why we don't hear from him. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Refusal to talk

    You can also use outlook, however I believe everyone has to be on the same platform, not sure with Google. I will talk on the phone to schedule an appointment though, certain things I don't mind talking about, only if its a quick conversation. When I was younger, my mom would be on the phone all day. She would talk to my grandmother, aunt, great aunt, great grandmother, just about anyone alive in our family. This probably jaded me with the phone calls.
