Total Watts

  1. I'm sure he could, but I happen to know he is very busy with custom builds at the moment, so the turnaround time is likely to be pretty long.
  2. Yes, I think it is a good idea to try and have "clean" threads with the drawings, parts lists and pics etc, as the current ones have got very lengthy, and are interwoven with various builds etc.
  3. Although not the same as this build, there is a 1x10 build thread with drawings etc here The drawings can be found here
  4. Yes, the Fender style cloths shrink when heated (be careful to not get too excited with a heat gun though, as they will melt!). Key is to fit it as tightly as you can then heat gently and evenly so the weave stays aligned nicely.
  5. Bought a Magellan 800 from Dave - excellent to deal with, very helpul.
  6. ....and given the size of the cab, I can't see the battens adding much more than a few ounces....
  7. All done, finally. Kept going with the oil, then finished with a few coats of renaissance wax. I added indicators to the wooden knobs with a bit of cocktail stick. The guitarist had given me some Seymour Duncans to install in place of the original PRS pickups, so had to re-jig the wiring, but that went OK - the single coil settings on the push/pull knob sound decent, and the volume is pretty even whichever pickup(s) are selected, so job done!
  8. ....so faux pickups that can't be seen - genius! 🤣
  9. ...I suggested Europe Audio because @sergelebasse75 asked for a continental based supplier
  10. These guys are good - I have ordered from them in the past (pre Brexit!) https://europe-audio.com/intro.asp They stock a wide range of Jantzen air core inductors - they took some time to deliver when I ordered as they didn't initially have stock, but they came through
  11. Here's the 10" cab build thread
  12. More of a refurb than a creation, but here's a bench from my bench. We bought some very tired cast iron bench ends last year, and I had them all blasted and powder coated. The slats are iroko. I had to plane off a chamfer because the flanges on the ends were tapered, so the chamfer allows the slat to sit better into the recess. I also cut in some small square rebates into each hole so the head of the coach bolt sat nicely into the hole and was also held tight when doing up the lock nuts. Only three more to complete now... In situ
  13. I picked up a pair of ZS10s recently from Amazon (£25 - warehouse stock.... just a damaged box - the phones are perfect). I'm finding that the have a tendency to slip out with the supplied tips, despite trying the various sizes.... would it be useful to add some links/info for alternate tips? I have used the foam type before and find them OK, but would be good to know what type fits these headphones....
  14. The prices are more reasonable than I thought. I imagine using an etch primer on the aluminium would give a better chance of a decent finish. I see that Hammerite do a direct to galvanised paint that claims to work with aluminium, too.
  15. Stevie, talking of grilles, would one of the off the shelf 10" round grilles do the trick (might not be the prettiest, but just thinking of those who want to do a tweeterless version at minimal cost). I should also say that Blue Aran do sell metal grill sheet, but I think the sizes are large and will be expensive if you just want a single speaker with masses left over.
