I feel like this needs a snazzy and humorous visio flow chart where all eventual outcomes lead to yes

seeing as replica enclosures are available from ceriatone you're not even beginning to approach the high end of klon klones

the right answer is that a number of cities/counties have toxic waste disposal sites for paint, cleaners, lead, etc. that said you could smelt the solder and recast it into bars, slugs, bullets, etc ... probably toxic as all hell, but whatever it's a party

at least I know what to expect as I continue to eyeball a sansamp with onboard rotary switches and that dls mkiii I've been begging others to do for some time now

about the only mechanical repairs I won't do are a/c work and tires ... my least favorite is dashboard work, I don't think there's ever been a comfortable position to work from on anything behind or under the dashboard

had a flextone II I bought stupid cheap ... it was indeed stupid cheap and I was glad when it was gone.
I'm also not fond of the blues junior amplifier but I don't condemn Fender as a company for it.

I found myself choosing kicad. first and foremost it is free. It does have more features like keyboard shortcuts and 3-d view. I get that eagle is more popular and I'm not here to say it is better than eagle because if I were already using eagle or another piece of software I'd be inclined to continue to use that rather than learn another program.

General Questions / Re: Slow Loris - LM308 IC insertion? / Not using R10?
« on: September 22, 2018, 02:15:39 PM »
you'll want to have the datasheet for the op amp so you can determine the pinout. you don't need anything underneath it to solder it into place. if you're looking to use a socket, you'll have to shorten the legs to use it with a socket.
R10 is a resistor that was included in the rat2 and turbo rat but not originals.

throw in a poorly written cgi script or two, maybe a really cheesy flash/shockwave that requires that I download a plugin ... and if you could make it so that it only renders in IE 5 that would be great

whatever happened to vipfx?

in all seriousness, my two tips: have some cash on hand, cards don't work so well with no power. solid fuel bbq grill (used outdoors ffs) because hot meals and hot water are the first things you start to miss

it depends on the state and age of the vehicle regarding the safety requirements. if you can acquire an original frame and metal chassis, you can get away with a lot regarding safety requirements. generally speaking, antique automobiles were grandfathered in to vehicle safety requirements so if the car didn't originally have that particular safety or emissions feature, there's no requirement for it to have it now. states like California require you to maintain any emissions features a car might have had, including any of the seriously power robbing features of the early to mid 1970s. for instance, a lot of companies offer aftermarket exhaust manifolds with smog pump fittings on them because the originals had them and California requires them.
