  1. Compared to what? Also nightmares are dreams too.
  2. I would agree that laser is the way to go with cutting paper. Marking, just thinking out loud here, you would need pretty fine control over the laser power level to ensure you didn't also burn through the paper. You could also probably rig up a fine pen to do the lines too. I think a hobby-grade machine could achieve the precision you need. Below is my experiments with a diamond drag bit on brass and that emblem is less than 1.5" tall. There's definitely some artifacts from inaccurate steps but this is straight out of the box, no tuning.
  3. That's really damn nice Steve. I'm really digging the matching aesthetic.
  4. Dang, that is a nice and clean build. Where did you get those heatsinks if you don't mind me asking?
  5. Made some simple clamps for the Shapeoko out of some scrap red oak. Don't have a finished picture because I don't have a flush-trim router bit to cut off the tabs. Still learning feeds and speeds so the finish is also questionable.
  6. Thank you all for reminding me I have a pair of Grados. Even if just the SR-80, I forgot how good these sound.
  7. Nicely done Nate, I really need to pick that project back up. I finally got around to adding a proper ground loop breaker and redoing all the grounding in the KGSSHV. I didn't take any pics...
  8. I suppose if I am spending that much on Stax, what is the cost of a nice set of earpads compared to that. Especially since it looks like they can do that blended leather/velour style that is on my Fostex.
  9. The red interior of the cups is a solid choice. Looking forward to maybe checking out T+A in the future.
  10. Are there any velour pads out there for any Stax sets that people have tried? Ideally in Lambda or Omega style. I realized recently that I am still using my janky Lambda Novas that I repaired myself back in college because I had no money. I want to finally upgrade but I do have an issue with leather pads in hot weather. I found a few options searching around but I want to know if anyone has tried any.
  11. Happy Birthday Uncle!

    What's the difference between a good joke and a bad joke timing. I prefer to tell dad jokes, even though I am not a dad. I'm a faux pa.
  13. I would also point out that some, mostly the type that engrave metals, of lasers do not trigger a blink response because they are in the deeper bands of IR. So all you will notice is your sudden lack of depth perception, or vision at all. I found this horrifying quote from Wikipedia: "A pop or click noise emanating from the eyeball may be the only indication that retinal damage has occurred i.e. the retina was heated to over 100 °C resulting in localized explosive boiling accompanied by the immediate creation of a permanent blind spot." And seriously, a $300 pair of safety goggles ca
  14. This is one of the better videos I have found explaining a lot of the basics in one video. Everything he talks about is applicable, really regardless of the synth format, even extending to non-modular synths.
