Middy approves of the new table I got to go with the Adirondack chairs. Now, more staining and finishing. Whee!

Alexandra, the turntable is nearly 40 years old and is not working. It's pretty but not currently functioning.

Thanks all. The speakers actually sound pretty good. The receiver may or may not sound better than the home theater receiver I traded him, but it's sure a lot prettier.

{#Yes}

I think the tiny cone over the dome tweeters in my KLH's is supposed to do the same thing. I'm not entirely convinced of the validity of the theory, tho.

Thanks. I traded an old home theater receiver for it. He may also give me a vintage turntable. As if I need another one of those. 

 
 
I do. Mine is borked.

That's an interesting grill on the tweeter, any idea what it does (or is supposed to do)?  Dave?

... a solar battery charger that you plug into the cigarette lighter

 
I have several of those for the tractors/lawnmowers at the Estate. They seem to work well, although those vehicles don't draw when off. Still, the batteries will go dead if I don't use the chargers.

I have been using gator clips to attach to the batteries, but I'm working on lug terminals to permanently attach to the battery. The chargers come with a decent quick-connect on the cord, so I'm planning to leave the little pigtail hanging out so I can just plug the charger cord on. I have never had much success with cig lighters maintaining good contact. If you always park in the same spot, you could mount the solar panel on the wall.

Northern Tool usually has good prices on them, and several sizes. Most of the ones I have are about 8x11".

One thing I am already learning not to like is all the computerized crap some of which is meant to stay active even when the ignition is off and the doors are locked. This means according to the manual that if its not driven for a couple of weeks the battery can go dead. Some other new cars are like that also. I don't drive much so I will likely get a solar battery charger that you plug into the cigarette lighter and hope it can keep up with the 30-40 mils always being drawn from the battery. I am also putting a battery shutoff switch on the neg post for when I know I am not going to use it for a while. And then you have to reset things like the power window computer window position sensor etc after a power loss. The windows when up go into a channel in the top to prevent leaks so when you touch the door handle with the door unlocked the window comes down an inch to clear the top and it goes back up again when you close the door. It also means you can't open the doors if the battery is dead but at least you can get the trunk open to charge the battery.

About 30 or 25 years ago, Schwinn did a really nice off-road bike in those colors. It was a good bike and looked great. Not a bad price, we couldn't sell them At. All.  

 
Back in the late 70's I took apart my ho hum brown bicycle and painted it BRG because I thought a Dawes British racing bike should be BRG. Then it promptly got stolen. My landlord wouldn't let any of the renters bring their bikes into their flats so everyone chained them to the water heater in the laundry room. So someone turned off the water and cut the piped and took all the bikes.
