    A friend from Australia posted this of her FB page. Mayber @Full Range has tried it. Friend is in Tasmania which is kind of a different place.





    Pies are fast food in Australia and the best ones are from bakeries 


    The ones you mentioned look like a jaffel or toasted sandwich but these ones use puff pastry and are only available at gas stations

    Well buddies ...my last weekend to spin some tunes , next wednesday is my departure to the rehab till march 20th. Be sure I¬īll follow what¬īs going on here from the clinic .ūüėĀYou can¬īt escape ūüėā


    Hope everything goes well mate and let me tell you that the rehab exercises are very important to a quicker recovery 

    As an example - wife had new knee replacement surgery and because she did not miss any exercises she was running in six months instead of a year 


    To keep you amused I can post some holiday photos that are of a musical genre 


    Leaving in about 4 hours

  3. A quick update 

    The Audio Technica ATML170 cartridge repair to original specifications is now complete and will be posted ASAP 

    The technician said it has ‚Äú30dB¬†separation and on testing sounds fab¬†too.‚ÄĚ


    In 4 days time I will be departing for a 14 day holiday / vacation, It‚Äôs on a cruise ūüöĘ to New Zealand¬†

    If it‚Äôs not to cold as it‚Äôs now Autumn here, and New Zealand is cold for someone that lives in the tropics ūüėéI am going to wear my Ohio state football T shirt just in case I bump into like minded fans from the US¬†


    On past cruises my wife and I visited the jazz blue room nightly for coffee and live jazz so will do that again and will post photos if time permits 

    I have internet so will check in regularly and although I won’t be spinning vinyl I will be entertained by your posts

  6. A very influential album full of sensual auditory pleasures in an experimental form 

    The music creeps up on you to first hold onto to ones thoughts and only stops when the track finishes 


    What a wonderful feeling


    Artist - Fripp and Eno

    Title - No Pussyfooting

    Installed Ania on Planer 3 about a month ago. Skeptical at first. High frequencies where shrill. After 25 hours the highs have mellowed out. Bass is spectacular! It's a whole new listening experience!!




    Looks like it will sting like a bee ūüźĚ¬†

    It works! and others say PVA does too. As long as it can be removed without damaging the vinyl, I say go for it!

    I agree with this comment - as long as the job can be done without damage then it’s OK 


    Using gum glue for me was a decision made after experiencing issues with PVA glue not releasing its bond and I had to soak the record over night to remove the glue, and that took about 30 min for one side (lucky it was a test record)

    To everyone here thank you for the participation in the humor, it has brightened my day!


    @Full Range what brand is your glue? may I ask



    Locally in AU it’s studymate gum glue    https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/clear-gum-glue-125ml-ssjbgum125#features

    For the US 

    ‚ÄėIt‚Äôs clear Gum Glue - not PVA¬†

    Available in any school or craft supply outlet 





    Yes it sounded much better

    I ran it through my spin clean. I watched the glue clean method on YouTube. Might be the perfect record to try glue clean with.


    OK now that we have had some side splitting laughs 

    This is a new Tubular Bells LP that sounded dull even after ultrasonic cleaning

    So I decided to give a gum glue clean - Have a look at the colour of the glue on a white background

    $1.00 bin copy. And sounds like it came from the $.50 bin ūüėā


    Tip time

    ‚ÄėGive the record a glue clean¬†

    And the best glue to use is “ Gum Glue “ not PVA

    Hello friends! 


    This is mainly for PAUL.   Over on the PS-Audio chat forum, we have two regulars from Australia.  One of them mentioned something about a strong wind storm that took out some 6 high power transmission line towers and shut down Loy Yang!


    Did this effect you at all? (besides all those medical snafus you reported....)  This was in the Victoria area I guess.  Let us know.  




    We were not affected as the distance to the storm in Victoria is from my location is Canada to Mexico 


    However in the period of Christmas and New Year 23/24 we had the same thing happen in our area but about 70 miles from us ( storm epicentre Gold Coast Queensland )

  13. A quick update on my broken cartridge the Audio Technica ATML170

    @MicroMara would be interested in this development 


    I have found a local (well the same state) technician to replace the broken canterlever with a new boron one and new diamond tip to original or better specs 


    So hopefully it will be ready in a few weeks
