  1. What do you do when you already have a number of projects on the go? You start another one haha. So I have a set of plans from American Furniture Design Co. (https://www.leevalley.com/en-gb/shop/tools/plans/73902-nancys-rocker-and-footstool-plan?item=01L5131) which I've made copies of to turn into templates. I just need to head to the hardware store and purchase some larger MDF because the sheets I had weren't big enough. I'm also just waiting for one of the woodworking stores here in Australia to get a specific rebate router bit back in stock that I will need for the leg joints.

  2. @mistermikevi understand, I enjoy working with my hands. When I started building kits, it was to learn more about guitars than just playing them. I now Love building bodies and I rather enjoyed building my SG. Something about bringing art to life! That makes it all worth the hard times you might have throughout the build. I remember when I was a teenager and learning to play ,I had a lotus les paul copy. I took it apart to paint it a different color and couldn't put it back together so I gave it to my best friend at the time And told him if you can put it together you can

  3. That is my point. I am not saying that covid is a small item as it is a REAL problem, We do need to know the REAL facts though, not skewed to scare everyone. We all need to abide by some basic rules to help slow covid and I have no problem with abiding by some solid rules, but not something cooked up from the use of scare tactics and skewed statistics..

  4. There is a confirmed case, I can't remember where now, of a guy that was killed in a motorcycle accident, but because he had been tested for the China virus by the coroner, he was listed as a virus death and not because of an accident. That was just one, how many others were there before people started paying attention. Any death in a hospital got paid more for a virus death than a non-virus death. Some records were "doctored" to gain the system. So, the numbers cannot be trusted until an investigation has taken place to verify the actual COD. Ron

  5. Well , that is exactly what was happening here until the actual facts began to come to light. There were cases of deaths recorded as Covid when the persons died from an automobile accident. Also those that had heart attacks were covid deaths if they had tested positive for covid. Why is it that if one has had or has covid and they were already at a very high risk of something that it is covid that killed them? If they had a heart attack then say that, add that they had possible contributing factors as covid. When someone dies of a heart attack and has the flu, it is a heart attack and the flu

  6. Not sure on battery life yet. I got about an hour with a smaller battery. My eyeball guess is 2-3 hours but I haven't done the real math yet. I'm planning to leave a big chunk of the back open and cross the heat bridge if it becomes a problem. Did a little bit of breadboarding this morning with the new battery. Honestly it sounded like garbage but I got sound though so we're on the right track. I was just piecing old schematics together so I'm hoping for better results once I start coherently designing it.

  7. 30 volts is the maximum plate voltage, typical operating is 12 volts. The heaters are also 12 volts. Most of the original circuits run everything off one 12 volt supply.

  9. Annie had to take a breather from the hair dresser. She said she was getting stiff from being in the same position so long... And she wanted to step back and take a look at her hair, so she could make some recommendations. Look at her standing there, looking out at the world.... I'm going to have to do something about her eyes. That blank face is kind of creepy. SR

  11. By "baltic birch" I suppose you mean the plywood? If so, I can't see any issues. It's made of hardwood veneers combined with glue and it doesn't disintegrate. Why would adding some more hardwood and glue change that? Compared to solid wood plywood is cross laminated which means only half of the wood at the edges is end grain so the sunk glue joints should be plenty strong. Heck, as guitar builders we should know how strong the smallest glue joints can be as they can resist hundreds of lbs of string tension! The acoustic bridge should be one of the seven wonders of the modern world!

  12. Thanks. The only swearing this time was when I guesstimated the extra space I would need on the back panel for the Tolex, and then it STILL wasn't enough. But it was already wrapped, so there was some coercion to get the panel in. Ported is tricky as it does open up the bass, but the extra excursion can be more than the speaker was designed for. This can be volume (dB) dependent. Since this cab will only be used in a lower volume home setting, I can get the bass without the risk of flub or blowing the speaker. If I used it with a band, I'd have to really be careful about over excursion. T
