  1. Can the average DIY slob find a source for this sort of grille material?
  2. Nope. You have to use clear GE Silicone 2 bathroom caulk.
  3. 8 AWG is for wimps. A real man will use copper bus bars...
  4. Underneath a Yugo dashboard...

    What I Got Today!

    So I found some dirt cheap homebrew Jensen Ultraflex 15 cabinets to attempt another two-way with the Faital Pro horn/driver and K33 Crites clone.

    What I Got Today!

    The Jensen homebrew solid Mahogany BLH cabinets turned out to be too short with not enough volume for a 15" driver. So I made new baffles for 12" drivers. The CDK coaxials with their higher Fs with tight minimal cone movement seem to work rather nice. The bass does start to roll-off at around 60Hz, and could use a subwoofer for lower registers. Above that, they sound really nice.
  7. Yea that's mine too but I reckon it depends how beat up and crusty it gets. When you're trying to keep acreage cleaned up &*it happens. Worn, crusty, full of dirt and mud will make them hard to get apart...unless a guy has good strong thumbs/fingers.
  8. Most commercial string trimmers spin counter clockwise...keeps the mess off the sidewalk and out of shrub/flower beds. Nothing I hate worse than one of those cheesy curved shaft string trimmers that spins clockwise. Those are good heads, but the only thing I don't like about them is if the line is brittle or the weather is cold, one side (or both sides) of the line will break off right at the exit holes on the head. Then it takes a screw driver to pry the head apart to fix the line. The spool types are better in this regard, because if the line breaks off you can just pop the spool off and rewind it. You can't wind the spool types too tight...then line melts together and makes a real chore trying to feed line out. Too loose, and the line will come out and tangle and wad up in the head.
  9. That's the part that caught my interest, although I'm only half through the article.
