  1. A friend at Graybar gave me two rolls of Panduit TAK-TY hook & loop (can't use the Velcro name but same stuff). Panduit | Graybar Store Great stuff, just cut the length you want from a 4" diameter roll. I use it for all kinds of stereo cabling, power tool cords, extension cords and my two-piece fishing poles. Strong enough for my 10/3 Yellow Jacket 100' extension cords.
  2. Hayward fishing last week. Nice weather, low 70's/mid 60's daytime, low 40's/mid 50's nighttime. Tricky fishing because of the weather fronts but LM still jumped into our boat.
  3. " It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar". Frank Zappa.

    Artemis 1

    To infinity and beyond.
  5. Bucket list trip, maybe in different times though. Trans-Siberian Railway.
  6. Same, plus one calcium/D3. Trying to eliminate the calcium/D3 with diet. NO need for a pill dispenser yet.
  7. Why waste money on gas, and overcrowded airports, when you can be like Timothy Leary and travel the world from your favorite armchair or porch. Just saying.
  8. IT IS relative. My parents, RIP, hated The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin (my favorites to this day). "How can you listen to that noise, it's obviously not music". Hmmm....listening to that, noise, courtesy of my LaScalas right now.
  9. Wow, I am surrounded by legends. Just wish I could see more of them in concert!!

    RIP James Caan

    R.I.P. Sonny Corleone. Guess he must be sleeping with the fishes.
  11. Now we know "There here".

    Diet

    Hey your hair is the same color. Good transformation. I agree, for me at 66, I am in the best shape ever.

    Diet

    Eating healthy isn't cheap. Anywhere from $1.00 to $3.00 per day more to eat healthy. Part of the reason we have the problems we have now. Salmon with rice or a quarter pounder with fries...hmmm.

    Diet

    Jerk Chicken? Bad name but awesome chicken.
  15. I made it easy on myself. I 3D modeled my La Scala's from 1963 mm prints and converted current 21/32" (or less for 3/4" plywood) to mm. And adjusted accordingly. No problem.

    Diet

    Dieting is just a matter of simple math. Burn more calories than you consume, and you will lose weight. Opposite is also true, burn less calories than you consume, and you will gain weight. And lastly, the meaning of an old-world word term =>Vegetarian. Means "poor hunter".
  17. @CoyteeLooks like original lube was: The lubricant was a mixture of tallow and beeswax. They don’t dry very fast, in fact, beeswax can dry and still lube the rifling. You might also try: Cannonball Identification Help | Cannons / Artillery & Crew Served Weapons (civilwartalk.com) Get a seasoned "old timer" to assist. Last thing you want is an unexpected "boom", and an insurance claim by your wife!
  18. "I'm sorry the number you have reached has been disconnected". Maybe I should have taken the blue pill.
  19. Yea I remember that! Don't miss that at all. Well sitting out back with my morning cup of coffee, watching the koi and listening to the waterfall (and the Lascala's in the far background).
  20. Amps not being equal, and personal listening perception all across the listening spectrum, what is your AMP of choice? Your 2¢ please. I have a chance to buy a McIntosh Mc275 from a friend for not much but still pretty salty.
  21. Two for my son's wedding present and two for me. A friend lasered them. Brass badges and brass screws for the handles. Only flash allowed. And with the few leftovers that there were I made outdoor bases.
  22. Total costs were about $3,400. Labor was free but spanned almost 12 months. @Shakeydealyes you are correct. Looking at a Mcintosh mc275 but I may not make Santa's nice list this year.
  23. The end of the build and the beginning of the enjoyment. Challenging builds for sure, veneered plywood was not friendly. Looking at Super Heresy's for the next builds, Hehe! might have to get with @MookieStlon these. Just wanted to say thanks for all of the encouragement and words of wisdom. Handles being an awesome suggestion. Sadly, I did not know this. I agree 100% as his advice helped me. Oh yes! See the EQ pic of some listening adjustments. At testing, at less than 50 watts my tinnitus is getting fired up.
  24. Woofers mounted. Used 10-32 T-nuts and 10-32 NF 1 1/4 Truss machine screws. @djkthank you so much for this real world advise on using 10-32 in lieu of 1/4. Started using my vintage 1884 Hay Trolley to raise and lower each cabinet. Not sure what they weigh but they exceed my lifting capacity.
  25. I understand the bang. Slim Harpo (Louisiana swamp Blues). The Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, The Grateful Dead, The Kinks, Pink Floyd all took inspiration from Slim. A lot of R.I.P.'s here. Better late than never for my ears.
