Great work! For glue-ups, get some repositional craft glue, spray a flat surface with glue, lay out your row of "pixels", brush entire area with wood glue and then stack them in your jig. Can do entire row vs one stick at a time. You should around 5-7 min working time with the glue.
Yeah, not easy doing this stuff remotely. Thanks for your time and efforts. I'll keep plugging along. I have all the parts, just need to figure out what's what.
Correct, no markings at all on "preamp" chip. Not sure how to trick the tape. The ribbon to the head is damaged and does not work. I hoping that I could mod this with the tape workings removed. Possible?
It's not going that well. This unit seems to be configured entirely different from most others. New pics show a small board that is connected to the tape deck part of the radio. I had to go macro to see the markings. I highlighted the areas that look like to be relevant. I inset a macro of the only area that looks like a R, L, channel, but I don't know.Your thoughts?
Thank you, sir! Actually, I am a member of that forum and have read that post many, many times. The problem is, my model of radio has a lot of bleed through when adding an aux to the pins that others use. Unless you know of a way to eliminate that extra noise?
claudiopolis, I loved reading this ible! I decided to give it a go, but (always a but) my deck is older and spartan compared to yours. For reference, it's from a 1994 Jeep Cherokee. Chrysler Radio model P56007214 (made by Mitsubishi). I am posting a pic of the unit with tape removed. I can not find a preamp chip anywhere. I have located the AM receiver and tape motor chips, but that's it. I am not expecting you to know everything about all radios, although it would cool, however, just by the pic can you tell anything at all about where I should be looking?Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.
This is fun. Is there a no-tears option?
Very cool. How did you sand the inside? By-hand or did you make a tool/jig of some type?
Good post. I need to do this for my 1988 Jeep Comanche. You touched on another great idea too. An under-seat fart filter!!!
Excellent point. However, my shop is wired correctly for higher amperages. Maybe I'll ask the electrician who wired my shop.BTW: Love your Laser Cut and Engraved Coffin!
If you're referring to the green marker/brass/silver screw, I figure that's the earth. I have no multimeter, and couldn't read it if I did. LOL!What I'm looking/hoping for is a simple explanation for which tabs to connect my live, neutral and earth (ground) wires to.Maybe someone has done this with a very similar motor.Thanks for the prompt reply!
Beeswax on the blade? Great advice! I have to try that!

Good to hear. My friend Candice killed a $4000.00 laser doing this. She was told that she could not start her business back up without a clean air scrubber. An additional 40K!
While the end result is very cool, personally, I would avoid this one using this method. Vinyl or PVC, is short for Poly Vinyl Chloride. Chloride is the villain here.Melting or burning PVC releases Chlorine Gas. A serious carcinogen as well as a corrosive. I know this because I have a friend who did this for a living using a laser. The Chlorine gas corroded her laser from the inside out! She did not know about the health risks to her or her family either.The only safe way to do this project is to hand-saw it or use a rotary cutter at a low enough speed to keep the record from heating up too much. You do not want it to smoke.Sorry to be the bearer of bad news since record clocks are a cool item!
Nice! Lot's of potential for this one. I really like the idea swapping the tools out, that's clever. I wonder if you could just use braced peg board as is, instead of drilling all those holes in MDF? And, it seems like building a box with a downward angled bottom would be more efficient for collection. Just my opinion. Thanks for posting!
What?! Need an ibble on that one! I'm always looking for a good, cheap way to collect dust in my wood shop.
This is brilliant! Pun intended! I makes me want to start making rings out of anything round and metal. Great job, my friend!
No luck on Amazon. I even contacted Stiffel directly and they didn't have an answer. I then contacted a few antique lamp supply houses and they couldn't help. I cannot believe that I'm the only person on the planet that has had to replace this part. Crazy!
Nope. Vintage and modern didn't agree with each other. However, I will not be defeated! I'll rig this mother somehow!
Thanks Phil. I've posted a question. We'll see what happens.
Right. I three-way bulb. @Downunder35m and Toga_Dan, it's a good bet that I'll need to "Frankenstein" this thing. The real issue is the 1/8" dia brass nipple at the top of the switch. There is a brass knob that attaches to this on the outside of the lamp. Modern switches appear to use plastic now. The brass knob won't work well, or for long, installed that way. I really appreciate the helpful responses. Instructables is a great community!
Not the same. Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I cannot use a modern switch for this set-up.
I got it! Fun and rewarding project. Make it easier by buying your square and round dowels at your local home improvement or hobby shop. Thanks for uploading Paoson.
Did you ever mention how tall the bench is? I'm tall as well and would like to know. Thanks brother!
