  1. I absolutely agree with that.
  2. That's a fact. I had a guy tell me about a pair of La Scalas and the pictures looked good. I get out there and the pictures were from years ago and were they nasty. You just never know.
  3. Looking at projects I may never complete this week and I have some Altec A7's. With building new things and the arrival soon of yet another pile-o-Klipsch pro I need things of remote interest gone. I have the horns and good drivers for two, two bass bins that need the refinishing work finished and one in great shape as is with the woofer there also in great shape. The two that need work do not have good woofers and I have three or four woofers I had stripped and was going to send to great Plains Audio for rebuild. If there is interest I can get pictures but two of these are on a top rack and I have to move things around to get to it so please do not ask unless you are serious. A7's are the only thing other than Klipsch I will work on but I am getting more stuff in soon and I have just run out of space for projects I may never continue. Looking at $750.00 for the pile as is. That is the bottom price by the way. Listing this soon in CL too so if you are interested let me know.

Pick up only and if you are interested and willing to drive to 60 miles south of Nashville contact me and we can go from there.
  5. NO there is NO hope. I have a shop packed and getting more later this month and it is all big stuff. There is never enough. Good thing I have a set of pallet racks and a forklift.
  6. My favorite veneer speaker. Good luck on the hunt.
  7. You can never count on time and if you snooze you lose.
  8. The thought just occurred to me about perhaps reinforcing a horn with fiberglass and resin. As long as you are not trying to sell them so you don't have to worry about keeping them stock is that of possible benefit?
  9. They go pretty fast around here for good money and the ones priced stupid high stay for sale. This set has been listed for at least two months. I guess the guy looks a what new costs and bases his price on that. Three years ago $1,900 was a minimum of a thousand to high.

    Probably OSHA forced conditions not one of those OSHA people would tolerate. Years ago I had a choice to pick oilfield or learn TIG welding and food service. I chose food service.

    Of course UV protection is important but generally you can get away with a pair of sleeves just to protect your arms. In hot weather lots of clothing is pretty miserable. I learned to weld in Westwego at the Avondale Shipyard in New Orleans. 105 in the shade and humid. We were required to wear long sleeves because it would keep the little burns you get from slag and metal while welding from becoming infected by preventing you from getting them to begin with.

    Ground Zero for sure. Dementia and Alzheimers are two of the ugliest things out there. Mom died from Alzheimers and before she passed looked like an Auschwitz prisoner.

    Did you see the picture of the beach all those people were forbidden to use in Virginia? It was flooded with people. I think this will happen everywhere this coming weekend.

    Patients in assisted care? I have not talked to anyone working in those facilities around here but yes if anyone would know them it would be those who work there.

    Speaking of atomic bombs look at Hiroshima and Detroit over the passage of time. I saw the major portion of Detroit's decline in person and run by the same bunch since 1961. http://www.angelfire.com/ca4/yourturf2/HiroshimaandDetroit.htm
  16. Two boxes full of these. $15 a pair for small and $22.5 for large + shipping.

    Say do you think UV from welding makes vitamin D too? I ought to be safe.
  18. One of the oddest things I have seen was a single Redwood in the front yard of a house out west. Here is this towering behemoth at least 20 feet across it seemed and who knows how tall. It was the only tree in the yard and made that house look like a postage stamp.

    Have you ever wondered what it was like just before WW1 and WW2? We have history books with varying degrees of accuracy but I have to think there was a general decline in stability in many areas that made it ripe to happen. Way before my time but I have had WW2 ration books before. You want to see something funny show a young person one of these and they have no idea what it is.

    Yes and Tennessee is way behind Indiana too. Those people up there must be doing something wrong. Went to Tractor Supply to get seeds (eat your heart out MI) and no one thought the dire and imminent life threatening media generated reasons o destroy the country with covid 1984 was real. No one I talked to knew anyone personally that had it once again. A side benefit to all this is that young people who are seeing their futures thrown away for nothing are now paying attention to those who want to shut down the USA and asking why.

    YES and so is sunlight which helps create it naturally in your body.
  22. The real estate is magnificent. The rest not so much.
  23. This is one of the things that will kill CA. Up until recently companies could not move because their high talent irreplaceable workers would refuse to move and just get another job. Today one of the premier aerodynamic Universities in the world is right next to Martin Marrieta/Lockheed and the people being trained there have no interest in moving to lala land. Haas Machine tool is another one. Quietly building a huge facility in Nevada and the largest machine tool builder in the USA will soon be leaving the peoples republic. The exodus is really just starting and I hope people don't bring their socialist ideas with them and it is just conservatives leaving. That sadly is not what I am seeing though as the people from out there I talk to seem to think all kinds of taxpayer funded things are cool. I am truly grateful that I am 20+ years behind modern places like LA and wish it was even more.
  24. I am betting re-installing the Audigy driver would have done the trick. Worked for ILI and I. They probably couldn't figure the problem out so fell back on hey, we can always do a complete re-install of Win10.
