    Nice. Been looking (not very hard) for one for my LT20 and LT30. Both need a little love to get them running though, and cartridge setup isn't the issue for either!

    Hi Jay! The Technics style gauges are easily obtained although they are 52mm. One can carefully sand/file end or scribe a line at 50mm, if that is the spec.

    The other must haves for linear arms with no VTA adjustment are cartridge shims. Cartridge height varies. The Harmon Kardon ST-8 with Rabco linear arm align tool also had a stylus height incorporated into the stylus align gauge as well. My LT-5V manual provides stylus height off flat surface in the manual (18mm or 11/16"). You add or subtract shims to get proper VTA.

    Ed's ST-8 had a .055" shim on the arm, but three other thickness that were originally supplied are missing. Unless he has that stuff squirreled away in his treasures. :D

    Shims from ebay. These are .015" each x 4. The light color ones are tapered, .0145" to .015."

    The 1950-1970 era the smell was possibly a combination of cattle and lead smelting.
    No particular odor these days, unless you drive by Warren Buffett's very modest home, you can smell money.

    In 1955 Omaha overtook Chicago as the World's Largest Meatpacking Center.

    Lead was smelted on the riverfront for 125 years.

    I like the description of the way the subwoofer works. This is a picture only - no links.

    This is the Hisashimichi interchange. It's a Japanese highway junction, made with minimum loss to Environment. This is a seriously impressive engineering masterpiece situated in Hachioji, near Tokyo, Japan.

    P.S. - I'd hate to miss the right exit!

    That photo, amusingly enough, was posted to twitter by Dixie Whatley, who used to be a TV reporter on WCVB in Boston back when we were in the Bay State. :) Guess she moved south.

    The Virginia creeper foliage on the Tu Hwnt i'r Bont (Beyond the Bridge) tearoom in Llanrwst, Conwy, north Wales, has changed colour from green to red. It was built as a home in 1480 but has been a tearoom for more than 50 years.

    10-4.
    That's our across the street neighbors.
    That's a big-money dry field stone wall, and it is indeed gorgeous.
    Interestingly, it needs a fair amount of maintenance, due to the annual freeze-thaw.
    It's rather enjoyable to watch a stone wall builder... umm... build a stone wall.

    Most of us have the 18th/19th century field stone walls, which are rather more utilitarian. ;)

    You think they went far enough this time?

    Tom

    Hopefully the lights are brighter than those on current trucks and cars.
    I'm only blinded enough to see spots right now, which I particularly enjoy when I'm riding a motorcycle on a dark road at night, but it's not quite bright enough to force a crash yet, and I enjoy a good challenge.
    I disabled signatures.
