    Four grand I could see ... they had to move it, research it, write it up, maybe hook electric to it, talk to people, all that. It's the guys who want 40 that amaze me.

  3. I could grab you a nice ribbon mike off taobao...

    I could grab you a nice ribbon mike off taobao for pretty cheap. They are not 1937 RCA's but for the price, heck. Fun to play with ... nobody else has bothered to make them at a decent price in the...
  4. It's pointless to argue about audio equipment...

    It's pointless to argue about audio equipment anymore because unless you have original records that have never been played, the source is garbage.

    No, I don't mean vinyl is "better". I mean that...

    Augustine used to make the guides oversize, finish the bore, then put them on a mandrel to finish the od. Never asked but he may have honed them after putting into the head to compensate for shrink,...
  9. Running a 60hz motor on 50 makes them run hotter....

    Running a 60hz motor on 50 makes them run hotter. If the motor is marginal it may run too hot and destroy itself. Solenoids same-o.

    Running a 50hz motor on 60 hz is no problem. They just go faster.

    Yeah, and bird strikes could cause about 3500 fatal crashes per year without an intervention. (I made the number up, it's an example. Substitute "coffee spill" for bird strike, if you like.)

    The registration fee is a lot older than electric cars. It's to buy the plates. Cars are registered by city, with different rules for locals and visitors. In fact, people are the same: when born you...

    Santa Cruz Mike had a late-model Chevalier with a current control. He picked up an old ExCell-O 104 with an outmoded Bendix and old-technology DC Getty's drives, Luddite Edition.

    hi Ralph,

    The problem is, they are all different. Normally there is a lever or a shaft that you pull in or out to engage and disengage the diff. But I've never had a 16-36, just a 14-15 and a 6...
