  1. I am currently running some cheapo VP pedals.

    Not sure how much the mini platform adds but otherwise no complaints.

    If I was buying today it would prolly be the A530 pedals linked above.

    Jenson also has the Shimano SH-M065 Shoes for a decent price

  2. My understanding is ethanol in pump gas can degrade the rubber bits inside a 2 stroke carburetor in only a couple years if the tool is stored with fuel in it.

    Home Depot and the like sell premixed fuel that does not contain ethanol but $5 a quart is silly.

     

    Anyhow... A replacement carb for this trimmer was $18 on eBay, the rebuild kit was $6.

    I should have ordered a new carb. Will know better next time. :D

  3. Quote

    I took a look at the ones that AMB is doing sig78xx/79xx.  I'm unclear whether he has mask on the back side. 

    Assuming "the production boards" are the same as the σ78 prototype I have....there is solder mask on the back side but the vias are exposed.

     Which could cause a short if an insulating pad were not used and the (proposed) exposed thermal pad on the PCB is grounded and extends past the outline of the TPS7A4701/TPS7A3301 regs.

  4. With fireworks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday but none on Monday it sure didn't feel like the 4th but will take it. :)

    Thanks guys.

     

    Edit:

    Also a big thank you for the belated wishes. :)

  5. Was thinking about the Box enclosure, would also fit in a Hammond, Lansing, Bud and a few others.

    I'm sure you can also find something on Aliexpress for a fraction of that price. 

    No question but getting them delivered can be a whole other story.

     

    Turning the whole thing around the other way is not without benefits but not shoehorned into an expensive case trumps.

    I like the FPE idea.

    Just buy the extrusions, some pre-anodized aluminum sheets cut to fit any size you like.....
