  1. Threw together a tool board in VCarve. In hindsight I could have done a better job with the space but it works for now.

  3. Changed out my ZU DL-103 for the Benz Micro Ace SL that arrived today. Got the new cartridge aligned, tracking force set to 1.7g and VTA at 20 degrees. Yeah, definitely an upgrade! Wow, really liking this cartridge! Flat and neutral? No. Fun and engaging? Hell yes!

  4. All this CNCing got me excited, so I figured I’d share... Here’s my mill and this is a heat sink that I am thread milling. Very cool stuff IMG_2788.MOV Also, I’ve been using painters tape and super glue instead of fixtures. Works great on metal. So much easier.

  5. I’m not sure if my setup can do thread milling, not sure if it’s a controller or spindle limitation. Rough draft finished. Time to get some thicker cheap wood for a full mock up.

  6. Man, did I sleep like a baby last night. I slept IN as well, which felt wonderful. I woke up to NPR playing Garth Brooks, which was kind of weird. He doesn't strike me as public radio's normal fare. All day everyone has seemed to be in a good mood, and I can't figure out why. It's like the whole nation got a good night's sleep as well. Funny thing, that.

  12. It’s a damn good thing you bought that robot driller, than would have been tough as shit to do by hand. In case anyone was wondering, I am now a Chopmaster.

I love the guitar intro.... in "Apocalipsis Now" It is a work of art

  14. Test run on what will be a Stetson and sword holder. Figured 36” would be large enough, I guess not.

  15. The locals pack them in quite nicely and yes, recent trends are that they ice up in several sections. I ended up finding a very lightly used set for $150 (vs. $200 per tire) so I grabbed those and I'll mount them up if it ever snows again. Currently I'm enjoying the heck out of the bike in mid-fat mode in weather that feels more like October than January. I have also further complicated the solution of the second bike by picking up another set of 27.5 wheels (again nearly new at less than half price) and appear to have found a frame to start building. Details once I actually have it on ha

  24. Curved OB baffles like these could be cool - I presume you’ll could cut a stick to look like that over a few days?

  25. Those are Nylon Caterpillar Grommet Strips repurposed as wire spacers. I cut them to the number of slots needed. Each is held in place using a tie wrap and a wire tie mount. You can find them at Mouser by searching under "grommet strip". I had some lying around so I can't give a specific part number but they come in various sizes. I only used them on the output wires to keep them spaced in order to minimize the capacitance.

  28. I use a Pass Pearl as my regular phono stage, but I also have a Parasound USB phono stage. I plan on using it when I want to digitize my vinyl. It's a simple, elegant solution. With the extra analog inputs you can also digitize cassettes, etc...

  30. Put on and cut a spoilboard with T hold down tracks. I’m seeing that work holding is a large challenge. For some reason I see a vacuum pump in my future. And a ATC, pulling collets off and on is lame.

  33. Why? For the chop saw? Every zero-clearance insert I've seen comes as a solid piece and you just run the blade thru. I feel confused.

  34. It is the stupid expensive one that Doug recommended. https://www.forrestblades.com/chopmaster/12-chopmaster-saw-blade-80-teeth/ Found it in stock at Woodcraft along with the tiny tool bench, Forstner Bits, Glubots and blade cleaner stuff last night.
