Baskets and crocks keep critters off equipment. Slowly depleting my vintage gear. Still have the Marantz 1060 with black face plate and black ash cabinet, plus the Sansui AU7500. Down sized and have no room.
I knew there were grills made for the Revel's top drivers and decided to make my own. I used acorn nuts to measure the distances between the magnets in the upper unit, then using balsa wood I made the frames to that size. For added attraction I placed magnets wrapped with a couple layers of electrical tape in the corners of the frames. I guess I could have just used small metal plates, but I wanted a strong attraction. I then covered the frames with a similar color cloth as the lower unit. They turned out much better than I anticipated.
Sold the black Marantz. Will use the Sansui AU7500 in the garage. Was surprised today while looking for a part for a buddy's Harley. Opened a box I thought had a new air filter in, only to find some stereo gear I had thought I mistakenly threw out while moving about a year and a half ago. My Benz L2 cartridge, a Grado Sonata cartridge which was recently retipped with a new ruby cantilever and stylus, an electronic scale, and other goodies. Had written them off to lost forever after the move. Great day!
