I'd like to see what cables (make and model) people are using in their DIY's; a good source (store) listing for parts would be nice too.

Time for a desktop CNC router, my friend.

FYI - Welborne Labs is having a 2-day, 20% off sale. I recently ordered some stuff from them to see if they'd gotten their act back together. Service was decent, I even got an email response when I asked about shipping status. So maybe they've righted the ship, maybe I got lucky, I'm hopeful.

Not necessarily "audiophile," but they look like they could be a good resource. It was closed on Sunday. I'll try to poke my head in soon.

Not necessarily a new supplier but I just got an update from these folks - http://www.metcaseusa.com/enclosures/combimet19.htm - with several new offerings. Running their online quote/price tool seems to show pretty reasonable prices. Not sure what their quality would be like but I may call and see what the chances are of getting a sample.

Not sure if this is the best place for this but am interested in an infrared thermometer.  Uses could be as varied as making sure my HVAC is working right, to gear operating temps, to coffee temp.  Don't necessarily want to spend 300 bucks, but Fluke is on my radar.

The Fuke Model 62 "mini" is $85 on Amazon. The Model 62 "max" with more buttons to figure out is ~$130.

 

Home Depot sells a similar pistol style IRT with laser pointer for around $50.

Online, they have a whole bunch of them, starting at around $30.

 

Harbor Freight has them for about $25 when on sale, normally $36.

Just smoked my second (mid level) dremel tonight, looking for something better for doing stuff like drop through transformer and IEC plug cutouts.  Anyone try the rotozip rotosaw+ or dremel 4200?  Would be great if it didn't get burning hot in my hands too.
