  1. Care to share the source for the sense relay?
  2. Welcome to the forum DD !!! Nice equipment you have there. What about the speakers and turntable(s)? Yeah, we're nosy like that around here. After 5 posts you can upload pictures - which we fully expect. 🙂 Pros - Not bending over to flip the switches. Music playback is available instantly. Internal components experience less thermal cycling. Lights in the 500t most often fail on power up so that is avoided. Cons - Electrolytic capacitors have ratings based on hours of operation. Always on = shorter lifespan measured in actual listening hours. Lights in the 500t are rated in hours of use which is obviously reduced if only powered on for playback. If a connected component were to fail or misbehave resulting in a high signal level "noise" to be produced, and you are not home to power down the equipment, your equipment and speakers could be damaged. You should consider sending the C-1 and M500t to Nelion Audio for the C-1 BillD treatment and the M500t MKII upgrade. The electrolytic caps in both units are due for replacement, the BillD upgrade is especially nice for vinyl users and the amp upgrades put the icing on the cake. Greg will make two good pieces of gear spec out into two great pieces of gear - which should last for many more years of listening enjoyment.

  3. Bring that boy home !!! Hospitals are awesome for the repair work but real healing is best done at home. Great to hear that he is recovering so well. Being young and physically strong with quick recovery abilities is something I took for granted until I got old !!! 🤣

    BASEBALL CARDS

    I wanted to update this thread - I received the cards today. WOW !!! Very nice. I am so happy to have these. I owe you one Rob.
  5. Nice toys guys !!! My comfy, sporty, old-man ride: 2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250 ABS. Not ZX-14 power but plenty of go for me. Super smooth, great torque, 45 MPG when cruising. I bought it used in July of 2017 from a guy who bought an Indian to replace it. It had 3,248 miles on it. Bone stock. He said it was too fast and not comfortable enough for him and his wife. I guess he didn't realize the throttle is variable, not just an On / Off switch? I stole it for $4,500 but had to drive to Hickory, NC to get it - 4 hours one way.

    COVID-19

    If this was directed at me, please read what I posted: From the link loner_t posted: <------ This is a link, with sources, that I was quoting from. ============================================================================================================================= Cloth face coverings should: Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face Be secured with ties or ear loops Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape Do not make the cloth face covering so thick that you have trouble breathing. Face coverings should not be put on children under the age of two or used by people who have trouble breathing or who are otherwise unable to remove the face covering without help. It is a good time to be kind! Please do not shame or yell at people who are not wearing face coverings. Others may have breathing problems or issues you do not know about. ============================================================================================================================= Now spend a few minutes and read the Results and Conclusions paragraphs in your own posting. It confirms exactly what I stated.

    COVID-19

    Can a proper mask, worn properly and discarded after ONE use, help defend against virus transmission? Probably, in a controlled environment. Does wearing a cloth mask, without a proper seal against clean skin, worn over and over again, defend against virus transmission? Really? I saw a woman wearing one of the colorful cloth masks in Home Depot actually REMOVE it so she could sneeze. Sneezed three or four times, wiped her nose with a tissue from her purse (which she then dropped right back in her purse) and then put her mask back on. The ONLY thing a cloth mask is good for is reducing the spray from a cough or sneeze - and she completely nullified the protection by removing it to sneeze. Do you really believe she is a unique example? FACT 1 - Once the mask is damp it's ability to prevent transmission is drastically reduced. The simple act of breathing dampens any mask worn. FACT 2 - If the mask is not fitted properly and sealed against your skin it does nothing to protect you. FACT 3 - if the mask is not N95 or higher rated it is not an effective barrier to the virus - especially if # 1 & 2 are true.

These systems are costly enough that they will not likely be "cast aside" once this COVID crap has run its course. This will help with making assholes who know their kids are sick yet send them to school anyway, or who go to work when they know they are sick, do what they should be doing anyway - respect others and stay home until they are well.

  9. Holy thread resurrection BatMan !!!!
  10. Welcome to the jungle Scott !! Don't be a stranger - we have enough strange in this place already... ( @RodH, @Balok, @Sk1Bum, @DrummerJuice, etc.)
  11. I'm so old that when I see "quad" I think of this:
  12. Awesome news !!! Thanks for the update.
  13. Set the blade at max depth, look towards the center to see if the blade has a "pin hole". If so, put your trusty Craftsman Phillips screwdriver through the hole, rotate the blade until the screwdriver is resting on the saw's main shoe and it should hold it so you can remove / install a blade. There may be a hole attached to an expansion slot or there could be other points to secure the blade. Use caution when putting anything near the cutting tip so you don't bend or damage it. Use an impact driver to loosen and tighten the arbor bolt. Wear leather gloves when handling the blade, especially if it is carbide tipped. EDIT: I just looked at the blade you posted - it does have holes at the expansion slots so you shouldn't have any issue. Also - be aware the arbor bolt could be left-hand threaded.
