    I love what you did with the place. That 1.75" will have zero deflection and  proportions nicely with your hardware. Don't use the food safe mineral oil here. Non-Drying with zero build.


    Drying oil (BLO or Tung) schedule:

    Oil once each day for 1 week

    Oil once each week for 1 month

    Oil once each year for life

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Be great to have one of these, or one for each channel!


    Understood. Sure wish we lived closer to each other. Good luck with your sale.



    @314carpenter, are you still driving around the country? 

    Nope. Came home empty too. I had a few options, and missed one sale I really wanted. My wife was happy the way everything went so that is a blessing.


    Those subs look like they could rattle the nails loose from the studs in the walls. Are they in stock configuration from Klipsch or partial diy? What are the specs on them when given proper amplification?

  4. Assuming you were asking about cutting 3/4" X 3/4" X 1/8" standard hardware store angle.

    Have you considered a fine tooth hacksaw? They work great. Clean up with a file loaded with chalk or soapstone after. If not, then...


    Use the highest tooth count you can find. 10 teeth per diameter inch. Tooth count and configuration depends on the alloy and thickness. The thicker the aluminum material is, the fewer teeth you typically need. (TCG) Triple chip grind tooth profile with a negative tooth angle is best. Like -5 degrees. You can use a wax to lub the blade to prevent welding of the material to the teeth of the blade. The aluminum will melt instead of cut if you go to fast and will make for a very ugly cut. Make sure you have your entire body covered in clothing, gloves, face shield, hearing protection. Use a very firm grip or clamp. One side of the angle against the fence and the other side against the table. Maybe put up some cardboard to contain the metal shavings from getting everywhere. Cover any glass in the line of fire.



    This high quality blade has everything you need for your project, meets the requirement of your saw, and is readily available. I was unable to find an economical alternative with adequate specs. 


    You will not want to use this blade later for cutting crown molding or any lumber or boards down the road. Sorry you can not upgrade your current saw blade with this aluminum project of yours. There are wood/metal combo blades, but those are for ferrous metal. A blade made for composite decking like Trex could work if you were planning that type of work ahead. Aluminum is a specialty product and should be treated as such. I know a blade like this is expensive for small projects. I own many dozens of different types of saw blades, maybe even a hundred types. They are not a one fits all kind of thing. Sometimes you just use them once. Please do not buy a 10" saw blade for your 12" saw and attempt to cut aluminum with it. It won't cut all the way through anyway. You would need to build up your fence first. Please do not turn your saw blade backwards and cut with it. Leave that to the siding crew. It would not apply here. Buy the right tools, buy the right accessories, do it safe. If you would like to save yourself some money, get a smaller size saw for special projects and the blades will be much cheaper. Like this


    plus this



    I have been trained, educated, you can trust what I say to be true. I do not deny that there are other real alternatives and suggestions you will hear that will actually work, but those typically originate from having a lack of something else. Some of those can cause damage to material, damage to equipment, or even loss of bodily function. I am just trying to give the best advice I can.

    Are you even willing to separate, or is this all or nothing? Give us some direction on the sale please.


    What screen do you have? Projector? Seating? Are they for sale? 


    So you are willing to ship? What form of payment will you accept? Do you have original boxes, packing, accesories, and documentation for each of the items for sale?

    That’s a great system, your going to kick yourself in the butt shortly after you sell that stuff.
    What do you want for the denon?

    Not at all how the Garage section works. If a bid were placed in PM, then we have a closed bidding, and may be bidding against ourselves. I proposed the seller present all of us prices. His reluctance to do so does not diminish my desire for some of the gear.  Open bids then?


    I will open the bidding for the Denon @ $50. Good luck everyone. 

  7. Sale pending. Expected delivery by June 7th.


    Thank you all for your interest. I know it is hard to see something this special slip past you. In the end there could only be one owner. I will let the new owner speak for himself when he is ready to do that. Please wait until after the delivery is complete before sending requests.


    Please keep an eye out for more of my work. I will have more projects completed soon. If you already own a special set of speakers, and you think you might like an extra special finish job done for you, send me a PM, contact info, and pictures. Lets see if we can come up with a solution that works for you.

    THEN I read how Mr. Bob Crites himself had posted here that he had a VERY hard time telling the two apart.

    I remember somewhere here, Bob posting how his partial hearing loss did not make him the best judge by ear. If you need a good judge find yourself a youngster to tell you what's happening. 

  9. Wonder who got the Chorus II's in MN that sold for =>$650 in the first couple of hours on Memorial day? I never ever had a chance to call. It reminds me of when I drove to 500 miles RT to MN in a snow storm there to get a pair priced similarly. When I got there the guy was visibly sweating from answering all of the phone calls he was getting while he awaited my arrival at 9PM. Gotta be first.
