  1. Thanks, I'm sure it would have cost me a bunch..and by the way, I love the pics you added. Well done! +1. So true, and welcome to the board, Richie.
  2. So noir. Jealous that you have a phone booth. I've wanted one for years. At my film school, some kid dragged one to the sculpture area for some art project. After the critique, it stayed there for a year or two, sort of in the way..but too heavy to just move. It was a bit beat up, and needed a little work, but I could have had that thing just for asking. Lost opportunities.
  3. It's always a good idea to go with a local fixer, if the production can arrange it.
  4. Beautiful pictures..still envious. How's the F8 holding up in the extreme temps?
  5. I love this thread. Very nice Ryan. I love the Rockies. So much history is preserved out there. Nice going. What's the kit you're using?
  6. Bronzed Grackles are in Florida by the boatload..and that green laser idea sounds intriguing. If I was a Grackle, I wouldn't like either I guess.. I'd love to know what they say.
  7. How effective was this? Did it work?
  8. +1. The flick method works good for me too. I always hit the iron cradle or a vice. But oftentimes, cleaning a pc board or overflowing solder cups is another issue. And I forgot to mention: the Soldapult is serviceable too. Unscrew it. Wipe it out. Coat everything inside with petroleum jelly. It's ready to go again. When I got the two I have, they were $12, so they went up some since then.
  9. These new Lithium Ion powered irons are really convenient. Both ends get hot enough to melt 63/37. All kidding aside. I've used many 110v powered irons. No matter which you settle on, I've found that best ones are the ones with a temperature control. Some have arbitrary numbers on the temp dial. Others go by Fahrenheit. A good desoldering pump is also a wonderfully handy tool to have. This Edsyn Soldapult is by far, the best I've used, because of its available volume, and the $20 pricetag.
  10. First thing I'd check is how the ECM-77b is supposed to be biased for the mic it's connected to. Edits: There also seems to be a phantom power requirement for the Sony. A quick look at the specs of the SMQV yields: Fixed 5 V at up to 5 mA; selectable 2 V or 4 V servo bias for any electret lavaliere. Interesting that it worked before. Until the real electro-brains arrive, I'd bet it's somewhere around those. : \
  11. It's nice to see you here Don, welcome from Florida! We've heard so many great things about you. The board just got better (again).
  12. You have too much fun Philip. Is that a pair of 81s on that Piano?
  13. Unreal. Way to go Robert. One of my favs.
  14. You have to post a picture for us now, at least.
  15. That sounds like a good idea.
