You have to know that "plus rap" was the very first thing that came to mind when I read the initial statement!  However, I don't want to exclude anything else which might truly belong on such a list, so I have decided to instead say "plus rap and possibly a few others."  If it doesn't belong outright, Disco should at least get an honorable mention.

I guess it's going to take more than attacking bad soldering to get this thing closed down.

 

Here's my best shot....something about pink...

In learning to do things you have to have both how not to do it and how to do it. Lots of info around here on how to do things but very little on how not to. Maybe I ought to tig weld some caps in and really demonstrate how to avoid the inferior electrical qualities of solder compared to keeping it all copper. 

Oh, I think we have plenty of examples on how NOT to do things, but nothing involving TIG welding.  That'd be a good addition.

I thought the whole edited post thing that I preserved in a quote would shut it down.

Tig may be a little too hot for the caps. A good mig weld should suffice. Possibly a couple passes to be sure.

OK I read up on your Gadfly stuff. What gage wire was used inquiring minds want to know.

O. Hurtz didn't concern himself with trivial things such as wire gauge, he knew the key to speaker design was maximizing power input ratings and generating heat.

 

Did you notice how Mr. Hurtz responds to an unsupported assertion of Mr. Carver?

 

Y'all are rank amateurs by comparison.

Congrats on the 1000 post! None more important than your preservation post saving the best quote of this thread. As you said, it was an honor!

Catharsis is a Greek concept.  Elizabethans were just copycats.

Being a bad solderer is not his problem.  Being an arrogant, insulting,  vulgar know it all who also can’t solder is his problem.

Goodness, why did I click on this thread? 😖😉

You could have certainly quit reading pages ago but there's something about a good train wreck.  You just can't look away.
