Some CRAZY good work there!!!
Or, better yet, transfer the profile to a piece of cardboard, then dump your gauge into a pot of boiling water, put some sauce and meatballs in another pan to warm up, slather some thick bread slices with garlic butter and put it in the broiler. . . . .
Yesterday, when I first read this post I was in a hurry because I was leaving the house, I thought Mark was Joking, but last night when I went to bed I realize that this is a very brilliant idea and I am going to use it, thanks Mark.
P.S. Please do not tell Helmut (I_Build_ My_Own), that I am gonna use more spaghetti...
So.. this post goes better here.
How to dye a bone nut
Most of the time I've been using bone nuts I make myself from a raw bone:
This time I needed a black nut. After several hours of googling I didn't find a proper solution on how to dye bone so I did some testing myself. I used Fiebing black oil dye (Stewmac sells this as "black fingerboard stain" or "ebony in a bottle").
I put a piece of bone in this for 24 hours, just to see what happens:
After letting it dry for an hour I cut it in half on the bandsaw and to my surprise it's black through and through! This stuff works great!
On the right you can see where I cut it in half:
On the left you can see a piece I held against the sander :
I just thought I'd share this. So if you ever need a black bone nut you know how to do it!
Great tip. I've used alcohol based dyes for this with good results as well.
It's very white Eugene!
Spent most of today making this. Its made out of old record player and reel to reel parts. Just needs a counter
Haha thats great!

This is square 1 of a tune-up that has waited patiently for 20 years. This (1974) Hiwatt 201 belongs to an old friend who, only recently, has been re-discovering cool stuff stored in the basement. Most of the tubes are original, including the Mullard pre-amp tubes. The last time he fired this up there was a funny smell and a bit of smoke. Nothing serious, I've quickly discovered. As you can see from one photo, the power indicator lamp has shorted out and melted. Everything else looks wonderful, especially the wire dress. Yahoo!

I was joking but if it's brilliant, then I'll take it.
