Maybe something from the Tim Escobedo catalogue, personally haven't made any of these but...

'Herd immunity', has it been established there is immunity once having recovered from having Covid-19?

From the CDC website, updated June 28, 2020;

The immune response, including duration of immunity, to SARS-CoV-2 infection is not yet understood. Patients with MERS-CoV are unlikely to be re-infected shortly after they recover, but it is not yet known whether similar immune protection will be observed for patients with COVID-19.


Weekend wrap, Friday lamb kebabs, marinated 24 hours in yogurt, tomato paste, lemon juice, garlic, chilli flakes, sprinkled with Aleppo pepper - onion/parsley/balsamic relish and spelt tortilla. Garden rhubarb with the last of summer-19 freezer berries for a pie.

Saturday, Steelhead trout wrapped in prosciutto, beluga lentils with shaved asparagus, parsley, garden basil & arugula, thinned yogurt.

Sunday, pork ribs with a five spice powder rub, smoked with hickory and cherry woods for a couple hours, wrapped in foil with more of the rub, butter and cider vinegar, another hour on the grill, unwrapped smeared with a Hoisin based bbq sauce then back on the grill for 30-40 minutes. Al dente local asparagus, baby potato  salad.

Take care!

Neighbourhood seller of Japanese knives according to his recent videos is prepping to take a crack at the Guinness record for onions sliced in a minute, can't be sure how serious he is but he is pretty handy with a sharp knife.

Never realised just how ferocious North America can be. You always think of it as being the land of Big Macs and ice-cream...

You forgot Walmart!

It seems there's a widespread idea out there that if enough of us get this virus it will just die off and go away. That idea ignores the reality that the more people who get the virus the more potential for mutation and then resurgence, as well as the reality that some people will just never be able to breath the same again after it.
I remember reading about a total asshat walking around the U.S. Capitol Building simply saying "herd immunity" when asked why he refuses to wear a mask.  I think he may even have a medical degree (truly frightening).  I can't remember which state he represents.

For whatever reason when i see reference to 'herd' i always think lemmings mass suicide off a cliff (apparently a myth and perpetuated by Disney, but nevertheless the image endures.)

Haven't been to my dentist in 2020 but my hygienists and dentists have been masked for years of appointments.

I believe a cathode follower, high impedance buffer before the phase inverter (PI).

I was hoping to provide actual data but Id couldnt find anything in the data sheets either.  I can tell you for certain the 1550Bs Ive purchased have noticeably thinner walls.

Thought to checked Digikey,  down as 2.01mm, they also have files there formatted for CAD programs and 2D (.DWG) files which you could get the thickness from. (cdn. prices) size again just chosen at random

The website has the 1590B as having 2.03mm wall thickness so just a wee bit thicker.

... more.... checked  a 1550B @ Digikey... 1.5mm thickness, that's a good chunk thinner.

I was in one a year or two ago when a Black Sabbath came on. Some indy places i've looked forwards to hearing what they may be playing during my next visit.

Overall as long as they're not playing latter day 'pop' it's going to be better then and more diverse than back in the day.

i worked in a major chain grocery store in 1975, all that was ever piped in was Musak, insipid wallpaper music with zero redeeming qualities. Unless you had a night shift then it became the intolerable music of an older generation, musical wasteland on all counts.

davent, are you serching this? I'm not dure, I can't read the thickness of the wall.

I have to say I like 125b, even it's a bit taller than other boxes. Sometime 1590BB is oversized, so 125B it' ok for me.

I used to buy enclosure from Musikding. Some weeks ago the 125B passed from 7,00 to 6,90 . Good! But now is 7,90 ! :o I can buy some coloured 125B there for the same price.

I start to think if I have to buy 125B from Aliexpress. ::)

I was just randomly sampling datasheet pdf's from the Hammond 1550 page and like with the one you linked couldn't find the thickness information.

Im not a big fan of the 125B so the 1550B is a pretty good alternative for PCBs that are a smidge wider than a 1590B.  However, 1550 series enclosures have thinner walls compared to the 1590 series, which is not ideal. Not a deal breaker for DIY, but Id be a little nervous to sell a pedal built in one.

So far in checking Hammond datasheets i've failed to spot a wall thickness dimension, i did come across the 1550Z series that are listed as 'thick wall'. I'll keep searching for that dimension...
1550Z, wall thickness 2.6mm...

Still failing in finding the 1550 wall thickness but the datasheet drawing shows a much thinner wall than the 'Z's.

I put a Bazz Fuss in a 1590G years ago, had to offset the jacks like with an 'A' and had to be careful with the the switch the box being so shallow.

Brian has a number of projects designed for the 'G'.

I can still see old photobucket pics so i'll try... did change the stomp to a much shorter Alpha which protrudes no higher then the knob.
