Yes after a few weeks of work I've finally gotten this thing assembled. I still need to turn some stainless caps for the tops. But acorn nuts will do for now.
The only issue I'd ran into was the Jell-O like stance it originally had. I couldn't even walk by it without it moving all over the place. But I made some brackets and now it's skookum as well as turntable friendly.
Cable management needs to be addressed tomorrow.

    Glad to see you back Brian, nice rack and gear

    Out of curiosity, was Larry any influence in the audio thing or have you always had the bug

  • Yea Larry had some influence but he really opened a huge door for me. Being an audiophile has taken all my interest, hobbies, and skills and combined them into one.

    It's nice to have people local with the same enthusiasm

    A little jealous of the skills and access to do your custom projects

    You and Larry have done a great job B)

    That turned out beautifully, Brian.2

    I also like those two giant Red Velvet Cakes you have next to your stand.

    Nice job! I could definitely kick back in that space and run some Hank thru the needle.

    I originally liked the way they looked too. Until my roommate pointed out that they're Ohio State colors. Being a Nebraska fan this will need to change.
    I might murder them out like Larry did with his 1.2's. Except keep the aluminum strip.

    Yea what happened to ya?
  • It was one of those days where outside frustrations clashed with a huge work load and a one timer on here set me over the edge. He wanted some custom spikes and after a couple emails back and forth I told him politely "no." He was clearly disappointed/angry, and after his last email I said (enter foul language here) I don't need this and I don't deserve this and I logged in and contacted Ken.

    Nice work! Like to see those 2B's with some stainless spikes to better match the Al strips.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm sorry Brian some folks are just clueless.
    Your are correct you didn't deserve that.

    Oh, those are speakers.
    I really thought they were cakes.
    Probably didn't have enough milk anyway.
