   Last two posts:
Hidden behind the wood I see Honda---could that be your old genset?
Rings--could just be photo/light but doesn't quite look like steel.  Hard to do a magnet
test from here.
   Keep having fun Steve

Indeed it's the old generator BJ... And definitely not steel on the ring.

I'll be doing a post before long on where things sit... Lots has changed over the past few months.

Test version of the new stereo layout for the new place...

It's close to tuned up... But I think I need to rethink the sub layout... Not exactly running efficiently I think. I'm sagging the supply there at rather modest volume levels (even barely but still noticeably dimming the room light), and the amp is running excessively warm considering.

It does sound decent tho... Only issue there is the room is hard to tune. It's a pure slave system, driven by a BT module (black box on the floor next to the big sub), completely controlled by the host transmitting to it.

I'll have to play around some more with this... But finally... TUNES! LOL

Hey there!

Yummy plumbing huh? I got talked into a bottle trap on my last trip home to PI. I was skeptical but replaced both bath sinks and the kitchen sink traps and I was sold. Very easy to line up the connections and if you needs to clean out the trap just unscrew the bottle like a jar, dump and re-install. Similar to the pic below but without the hose. There are some fancy ones available here but expensive.

Have a good one!

Barely fall and the thing was already chirping (guessing it was installed around early summer lol)

   Big company, been around for a long time.  Kind of makes you wonder what other corners
they are starting to cut.
   But, have to pay those board salaries somehow.

I’ve got one of those too! Nibbles hard when she’s done with you. Just when you think a 9 volt is done, poof!, the garage burns down. Tape those terminals when throwing them away, wafer cells too. Guy burnt his house down recycling batteries and it was the 9 volts according to the inquest.

That’s was your 3 bits for the day.

How’s life treating ya these days?

Not bad. And I don't know why I'm not getting the notifications on this... Sorry

With the truck gone and a couple of moves, new(ish) relationship, and the fun that goes along with all of that and then some lol...

Been fairly busy but I think it's all finally starting to slow down a bit. Hope to kinda get back into the electronics end of things sooner than later, tho right now it's kinda a "answer in need of a question" lol

Last project was the charger and as implemented at least, really requires the large(r) batteries to complete the dev phase, which of course no longer exist... So there's nothing on the table right now, just the desire to mess with things lol
