Guangui,
Those look good in that finish and I am happy the sound worked out even though this was designed for the much more expensive FF85wk. Those are the same binding posts I use!

Thanks! I am very happy with the result of using the inexpensive TB W3-881SI.

Hi Zayne,

That's a great idea., I will have to remember that for next time. Next time? OMG - Gulp!-

I have now completed the internal channels and after cursing the caulk up and down, I decided to read the label. You know how you assume sometimes? Turns out this isn't urethane, it's butyl caulk meant for gutters, not the stuff for vapour retarders, so I really did curse myself. If had only run to the store for some of that cheap acrylic latex stuff, I would be a lot happier.

So now I am ready to install the backs. Because this is a critical one to seal up tight I will employ the filet method where you glue down a thin strip of paper first to give me a level ledge onto which I can add a heavy layer of PVA for the bonding.

There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Looks to me like a new page for the Rorschach test. If you see a snowflake you are normal and sane. If you see four tiny tubas you have an advanced case of FC syndrome.

You mean Five tubas - I guess you have it worse than you think?

Hey, leave me alone. I have a whole group of serioud mental conditions I have to deal with every day - one is numerical dyslexia.

It looks like a lab mouse run. Put him in the center and see which path he chooses. Hopefully it will sound as good as it looks.

Cal,

Have you ever thought of buying 4 to 6 cement blocks at your local hardware or HD/Lowes? They are about $1.00 each, and will make a more balanced and even pressure press than your contraption. Though we know your chair press works as we have seen it previously in use.
