  • Converting an Old Radio Into a Spotify Streaming Box

    One final note on this topic, just to hammer the point home. A friend of mine is an amp tech. He posts some of his work on Facebook. I just came across this post on an amp he's servicing:"Note to those playing the home game: this amp hasn't been used in months and the caps had 430VDC on them. Always always check."So, to sum up: Always, always check!

    Not entirely sure I understand whatever it is you were trying to say, but I think I roughly got the point.Most of the people on this site have never seen a vacuum tube and the vast majority have no idea that they could die if they touch the electrolytic capacitor in one that's been turned off. Just trying to share some basic safety information. I'm not sure why you'd have a problem with that.

    How to Build an Electric Ukulele

    I'm curious; how is it any more a guitar than a ukulele. It's got 4 strings, presumably sized and tuned as a uke, not EAGB. An 18" neck length would put it in line with a tenor ukulele.Not many 4 string guitars with 18" neck lengths that I'm aware of.

    CRISPY BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN

    No problem. It's a lot of work to put one of these together. I'm sure stuff slips through the cracks. Looks like awesome chicken. Can't wait to make it. Maybe this weekend...

    I'm looking at the instructions on this page (Step 2). I don't watch videos to get a list of ingredients. I look at the ingredient list. Flour is conspicuously missing from the list.

    Looks fantastic! I'm dying to try it.Two comments:1> "Pour all the ingredients out on a large baking tray and mix together."I'm pretty sure you mean all except the eggs.2> You don't list flour in the ingredients.

    Current depends on voltage & load: I = V/R. So if your voltage is 12V and your load is 1K ohms, then your current is 12 milliamps.So you adjust the current by adjusting either the load or the voltage.

    $2 vacuum sealer Life hack

    We do a low-tech version of this, which is you stick the food in a ziploc baggie, stick a straw in and seal the bag all but the straw to one side. Then, with the straw in your mouth, suck really hard, start sealing the bag and pulling the straw out as you continue to suck. It's not as complete a vacuum as one of the commercial machines, but it's pretty good and seems to do a really good job protecting against freezer burn.
