Hey, where did you get that knurling machine from? I have been wanting to do something similar, and I have some aluminum stock laying around.

It's a smithy milling/lathe machine,, it's expensive, but very well worth it.

Just do a google search for Smithy Lathe,, I think that one is the Midas lathe/milling version.

Ah, well, all you need is the knurling tool... like this one

Sweet, if you're in dallas you're closer to my lathe than I am. It's on my family ranch southeast of Dallas about an hour.

Too bad I'm not up that way more often, you could use my knurling attachment and radii cutter.

Thanks Alan!

I just posted the shots of the harddrive case I used as the base of the amp, and the freshly installed battery door.



Also a movie with sound of me playing on it, for those who want to judge the sound of the amp, if not my playing ability. Smile

And, there's a new project up, I think it will be another amp, but I haven't decided yet. But the 6x6x3 piece of big leaf maple I got for it is absolutely beautiful!

Hah, there's not much there yet! I just got the wax peeled off the block yesterday.

I've got to get some supplies from Radio Shack.

That wood comes wrapped in wax? Is that for protection against cracking? I remember I made a nice stool out of a large piece of oak, 3 weeks later there were huge cracks in the thing...

The types of wood I get are sometimes coated in wax to keep out moisture. They're usually bowl turning blanks of some kind of hard to come by burl wood.

When I go to the wood store, they always ask what I'm up to, since I never just turn a boring bowl out of the bowl stock they have. I usually try and do something different with it.
