Didn't notice it mentioned yet so to the list their knobs were entirely cringeworthy, plugs extremely poor quality, don't even think about it. I stopped using Tayda altogether. Not to mention the snails pace of shipping to Canada, weeks for an order, maybe that's changed, i won't be finding out.

I used GAC 200 for laser image transfers. Found waterborne lacquers applied with an airbrush the best clearcoat, sealant. Acrylic mediums like Mod Podge, GAC200, pva's, will reabsorb water go milky looking if not sealed.
Can easily get any type of finish luster you'd like with the lacquers.

Hell yeah, the Oh sees rock.

I particularly like the albums Memory of a cut off head and Orc.

Local library has a few of their albums on the way to me for more exploration...

Oh Sees use two drummers, King Crimson is using three.

Putting the enclosure graphics is the part I don't like a bit.  I have used stickers, markers, mod podge, and water slide decal.  It's the decals I am having difficulties.  What I do is I print on inkjet decal (sorry, don't want to invest on laser printr). Then after ink dries I spray topcoat. After top coat dries, I cut to size and dip in warm water, then slide on to enclosure.  After drying, I cut the holes and then spray top coat again then dry.  My problem is, after drying the top coat, the lines get all wonky and wrinkle.  The decal moved or shrunk or something.  What am I doing wrong?  Did I just leave it under the sun for too long? Is the decal reacting to the type of top coat used? I've messed up two pedals but luckily the owners were okay with them.  Kinda made it unique or something. lol

Maybe applying too much finish at one time, many mist coats with time to dry between coats rather then a couple heavy sprays and done.

Finally set up to clean and wet vac my albums so digging through tonight and came across this gem from high school days. Trapeze - Hot Wire, their first album after Glenn Hughes moved to Deep Purple.

Rock funk of the early mid 70's.

My son and his friends at school have taken to tying their hair up in a pony tail on the very top of their heads, so it stays out of their eyes while playing soccer. He was walking round our house like that when we had the families over for a party. A few days later my sister sends a photo of her son wearing his hair the same way.
I mean, it looks ridiculous, but that's kids these days.

Good thing other generations didn't do things, wear things that were deemed ridiculous by their parents.

It could be one they've bent up themselves, simple folds.

My now almost 30 year old Maytag washing machine broke a couple years ago. With google help figured out what was up with it, was able to find the solenoid valve at a shop near me, the washer deisign was one that had been little changed in years. The original part was made in Italy didn't check the new one. The guy at the counter in the parts store and the service man were, 'don't ever get rid of that machine'. Started a stopwatch to see how long i'd need to put it back together, including a couple pictures under 7 minutes and ready to test. Was so simple, easy access, room to work, no computers, a different time.

Maytag gas dryer bought the same day only used in winter for sheets and bath towels, so far a new pilot and the plastic drum fan was replaced.
