  1. There are albums that are a reminder of why, of well, who I became...
  2. starting off with a bit of gold...
  3. OUWWWWWWWWWCHHHHH Yeah I remember that... pray I never have to again Glad you got an appt @JohnJ All my thoughts and support John, just drink lots for now. (I did not say what!)
  4. Was going to find some Leonard Chen and ran across this series...
  5. YES YES I agree, but I admit to liking them all!! I always have to start with this one to hear La Grange!! Best version on this album
  6. Gettin started, more wiring-rewiring... hard to keep focus with all the interruptions here. Maybe a bit of ZZ will help improve the mood HA!
  7. One more day of routing wires, cables, and harnessing.... Vinyl has to be patient cuz I ain't for sure So with a partial system, it's a u toob day
  8. That is the reason I asked the brand. In the USA it is not common to stop at a hardware store and buy a Gum glue. Since Gum refers to a sap typically (Gum Arabic, Mastic, Dragon tears, Amber...) just not commonly found over here. As a violin maker, working with various types of varnish, these are common materials, most of what my adhesion is made up from, and I ?might? have a bottle of PVA here somewhere. The only Gum Glue I did find on Amazon US is 91% water and 9% Polyvinyl Alcohol, not Polyvinyl Acetate such as Tite Bond. There are many white glues out there, some PVA, some Casein based, and some of variations on the themes. From what I "could" find, the Studymate gum glue is most likely based on Mastic, and or Gum Arabic, the MSDS does (Will) not say. It works! and others say PVA does too. As long as it can be removed without damaging the vinyl, I say go for it! Heck maple syrup should work a little, just be sure to get it washed off well, I do not think the stylus would like the change in velocity. Dried Syrup would surely rip that stylus out in a heart beat. Silly putty!, Auto body clay, so many things that could be pressed into a groove and attach to the dust, lifting it out.. works for me! A nice wash will also do a lot to remove the dirt and grime, and of course that opens the barn door to the obvious chemicals and degrading the vinyl. With the advent of the more sensitive cartridge and stylus, we do want to clean and preserve our collection, preserve the stylus from hitting the potholes in the road, so it makes perfect sense to experiment with new ideas on how to clean, and follow that path of "Discovery" of what works the best for you. It is just as important to do a good preen after playing that album, good sleeves and proper storage. Just my thoughts here and a big thank you to @Full Range for the tips and advice here today. Good stchuphff! dewalt-gas-pressure-washers-dxpw61156-64_1000.avif
  9. I know, I know... I never listen... 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
  10. Yes I agree, but I never could say no to Mom...
  11. HA HA HA! Yeah all that RED! went gray in my late 40's! Gray went white in the early 60's LOL What comes after White??? nahh don't answer that! It is going to be a few more days here before the Vinyl hits a platter, some extensive rewire work happening. I read earlier @JohnJ about getting things back, and I have to hurt with ya on that. I will only say when I gave up on that reality, it began to happen after almost 20 years! I have to admit how wonderful it feels to push that power switch!! ( feels more grand with speaker wires in mouth (the bare parts) especially if I forgot to turn the volume down. Hang in there @JohnJ I have faith for you. ... Might have to move the Dual at least and hook that up from a table or somethi........ I NEED MORE SPACE!!! sorry got out of control there.
