    Bass Amp - Ampeg B15 Clone Project

    As promised, off to a slow start. However, happiness is a newly drilled chassis. Just waiting for a 1-1/2" punch to arrive for the can cap, and I ordered a pneumatic nibbler to shape the IEC socket. I'm going with the CtG version.

    Almost end of the season (Great Lakes Shipping)

    The Seaway opened up about a week ago - I've seen a couple or three ships transiting. The channel was clear, but the winds have been moving ice chunks into the river off the lake. I understand the Seaway Pilots are back in town.
