  1. Happy Birthday Rich and thanks for all you have done for all of us. No, you don’t know me from the man in the moon but that doesn’t reduce my appreciation for the many contributions you have made to this community. Have a great Birthday.
  2. Totally agree AJ. Dennis is one of those super human beings that always looks on the bright side of things and goes out of his way to help others. We are very fortunate to have him here. Jim is another one cut from a similar mold.
  3. Looks great Dennis & I’ll bet it sounds every bit as good as it looks. You set a high standard and those speakers came out really nice. I like the nice clean look and each piece compliments the others.
  4. Sorry I missed it but here’s wishing you a very belated Happy Birthday. Hope you had a great one and are looking forward to many more.
  5. Belated Happy Birthday wishes. Enjoy your week off!
  6. Happy Birthday Turbo - Enjoy it to the max & many, many more!
  7. Dick, I am so very sorry to learn of your loss and I understand what that empty feeling is all about when a decision like yours has to be made. Hopefully, you can eventually find some comfort in knowing that you did the right thing but that sure doesn’t make it any easier. I think that losing a friend and companion with four legs is as tough, if not tougher than losing a close relative. Be thankful for the time you had together and all that both of you did for each other. Hang in there my friend and cherish those memories forever. As several others have expressed, you are not alone in your grief. I too have been there more than once. Most recently, May 17th and I still tear up when thinking about it.
  8. I’ve had an occasional flat as I’m sure most of us have but my first car provided the most memorable experience. In 1967 I bought a 1957 Austin Healey 106 (forerunner of the 3000) for $750. Being the wise young fool that I was, I took it out on I-95 (Connecticut Turnpike) the first night I had it to see just what that puppy would do. I got it up to 120 mph according to the speedometer and was flying by everything on the road. All went well until the following day when I encountered one blowout and two other less dramatic flats. Suffice it to say it didn’t take me long to realize just how foolish and just how lucky I was. Looking back on that episode I guess the big guy had other plans for me.
  9. Let me add another voice to the chorus - Thank You Greg! I think Daddyjt summarized it best - “the downtime made me appreciate what we have here that much more.” I’m not sure that I ever got past the initial withdrawal - Damn, I missed this place and all of you mutts.
  10. I figured that I should bump this back up as it was about to fall off the first page. Drawing will be at 9:00 Sunday and I expect it to be in the winner’s hands before next weekend. (Maybe a little longer if it heads across the border) Best of Luck to all.
  11. Belated Birthday Greetings. Hope you had a great one and are already looking forward to next year’s.
  12. Happy Birthday - here’s to wishing you many more along with plenty of cake and ice cream.
  13. If anyone saw Itch’s post re: this C-1 tabletop case, well - let’s just say this is a follow-up. I made a few of these and based upon all the nice comments thought that there may be some interest among members. Here’s the deal - solid Mahogany Case delivered to your doorstep to house your Carver C-1 Preamp. Submit your name, I’ll put it on a card and my wife will draw a winner at 9:00 O’Clock PM Central Daylight Saving time Sunday Night. I’ll need an address from the winner and will get it shipped out by the following Tuesday. For those do it yourselfers, the faceplate is 3.5” x 19”. Cabinet width is 20.5”, depth is 8.25” and height of end spacers is just over 3.5” depending on how tight you want your tolerance to be. I‘ve used stock that varies between 1.25” and 1.1”. A one inch round over bit was used to radius the ends and the side spacers require a rabbit that is about 5/16” deep and will have to be cut out enough to achieve about 19 1/8” opening in the face after the glue up. I just used a simple butted construction w/o biscuits or dowels, figuring I had a large enough glueing surface to achieve the strength needed. The one pictured was finished with Minwax Gunstock Stain and a Poly-Acryplic Varnish. Sunday Night 9:00 PM Drawing for any interested members. (No, the C-1 is not included)
  14. Thanks to all for the kind comments. Everyone on this site has always been very good to me and I’m glad to occasionally be able to do something nice for others. This “case” idea was one of Itch’s making and I thought he and LT (another most generous soul) were more than deserving based upon their historical generosity and friendship. I’ll be doing a separate Karma post tonight and will also include some quick specs and comments for any ambitious DIY’ers.
  15. Seems to becoming a more frequent excuse but here I am a day late and a dollar short Wishing you a belated Happy Birthday. Hope it was a great one that will be followed by many, many more.
