    Trying to appeal to the Medieval/Torture crowd, maybe? I don't know, I think they'd be much safer if you turned it over.












    :D
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Brian was a welder in our shop a few years ago as I got to know him I started thinking he would be a great fit for the machine shop, I asked him his thoughts on this, at first he seemed a little hesitant but intrigued at the same time, but I assured him if he didn’t like it he could come back to welding, Brian is a great guy, and I was spot on he picked it up and ran with it, he is very smart, and most important IMO very grounded, very honest, he is someone you could trust with everything you own, I would welcome 20 more guys just like him..

    We haven’t had the chance of late to hangout together now and then like we did, as my life has been very busy between work and the work I’m doing in my house, but we get a chance to BS once in a while at the shop..

    Ok I will end my rant about Brian and go make a cup of coffee...

    Ha, truth be known I have probably ranted about him like this already, but getting older things slip by.. LOL!!

    I plan on doing a run of these things in the near future. Probably in a month or so.
    The pricing still needs to be worked out. But if I could produce a set for somewhere between $80 a $120 would any of you have interest?

    Thank you for the kind words. I do the best that I can whenever I can.
    I have to admit I like being a machinist over being a welder. I prefer the precision that comes with the trade. I'm truly grateful for having Gary B. as an employer, and also Larry allowing me to advance in my career. Larry is definitely a good friend as well.
    I'm glad he pushed me to become an audiophile. Its managed to take all my hobbies and interests and combine them into one.

    I was just trying to get you to blush .... LOL!!

    LOL that is not a speaker Bud its the dreadnought. It will be screwed to the dreadnought i do believe. My bad after I enlarged the photo it appears those are holes and not screws my bad. On my phone it appears to look like a slotted screw at first glance.
    Please tell me you do now what the dreadnought is.
  • BlueFoxBlueFox Posts: 11,237
    Well, I was thinking it was a sub. However, the coupling question is still valid if it is a piece of electronics.

    It's upside down in the pics. Flipped right side up the spikes will be on the bottom.
