  1. This sounds like something is oscillating. It is almost certainly not due to a ground loop, bad outlet, cable, power cord, air conditioner, etc, and it likely going to require a scope and knowledge of the circuit to diagnose.
  2. We occasionally have sugar maple with tap holes around here. It looks similar, except the holes are larger.
  3. Now all we need to know is when CDs will sound better than records ...
  4. Pictures of abandoned stuff in Russia. https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2018/08/photos-of-abandoned-russia/566984/
  5. @blessingx When I was in the used camera business, we had a small stash of old Alpas which are still my favorites. https://casualphotophile.com/2018/03/21/alpa-10d-camera-review-swiss-35mm-film-slr/
  6. Regarding the initial comparison of the Daguerre Giroux vs. the Fox Talbot: the construction of the DG, with the grain running top to bottom, will cause the distance between the lens and the film to change with humidity as the wood swells and contracts thus throwing it out of focus. The front to back grain of the FT will be stable in that regard. It's a minor thing that probably didn't really matter at the time, but it's an interesting form vs function distinction. Also, the Brownie wasn't produced in the tradition of the Model T as it predates it by a decade
  7. Transgender rights activist Henry Berg-Brousseau dies aged 24 https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/dec/21/transgender-rights-activist-henry-berg-brousseau-dies-aged-24
  8. To be clear, the walnut will work fine for the base. Better than fine. Ash would be optimizing, but it is guilding the lily and any hardwood is going to do the job. Similar for the top - if i had a stash of stock that I wasn't going to use for anything else, I'd use it there. If I were starting from scratch and deciding what the buy, I'd do something like the ash/maple combo.
