No, no 2020 at the show lol   surprised at the entry price! In the scheme of things it's really not that bad compared to the Ferrari hatchback my wife was "looking" at.... only $330K  and you can actually take your golf clubs and a suitcase or two! lol  :-* :laugh:

Definitely not fun raising sawdust on hot, humid days.

Yep.   That was a lot more work than the pictures may lead one to believe.

Nice work so far.  I don't have some of the tools, like a planar, but if I did I might not have the ambition.

Jim, did you happen to see the 2020 Corvette down there? Buddy of mine sent me a pic...



HA! Seriously though, I'm actually really excited about the new Vette. Time will tell, but it looks amazing. Huge caveat is how the heck that motor gets any work done on it. Looks like changing plugs would require the motor/rear end getting dropped out the bottom. Regardless, looks like a great deal for a fraction of its competition. Now who has an extra 60K I can "borrow"???

Couple of new pics.






Yeah, yeah the grain on the new bottom...or is it really the top  ??? isn't going the right direction. It's what I had lying around that was close to the correct thickness. Couple passes through the planer and it fit right in. Plus, I doubt it affects the sound.  >:D

More coming including a fairly ratty cone repair. The ripped mid may need replaced, the dustcap surrounds are aluminum and this one is real wavy. I think I got it glued back together, but we'll see.

The crossovers look good, minus some corrosion on the one that was wet. I'm going to hold off doing caps until I get them put back together and listen to them. The caps in there look pristine, but we'll see how they sound.

The Circular File / Vintage GP

The vintage GP was not at all cool today lol....  Mustangs Cobras were the center piece. Hard to believe that, that many still exist and were in Pittsburgh. Also, it was the national Alpha gathering. Spotted two Alpha's that I'd never seen before, which for me is a cool thing despite the weather!

Spinning some Eno.  "tiger mountain"

Amazing detail with this new home made pre-amp that Vince dropped off yesterday.  And he came back today, took apart and fixed the HPM100 that had an issue. 

Spasibo!

Great album.

1 and a half years since I quit !! Feeling groovy .

That is awesome.   I never smoked but I watched my parents wrestle with it.   My Dad was so good at quitting that he did it at least a half dozen times.   Congrats!!!
