Hello!.....new member here

Hello all........freshly registered member here. I have been following this board for quite a while though. I am a home-tinkerer by nature---I take nearly everything apart to see how it works or backwards-engineer "something better"........sure......

I was reading the section on speaker cabinets and noticed how much demand there is for the speaker clips. It is apparent that some folks have built some extremely nice cabinets in the Hard Trucker's genre, demonstrating some very admirable carpentry skills!

I made a bunch of aluminum clips from bar stock using the woodworking tools in my "shop".........

Anyone with decent basic woodworking skills can do the same--aluminum works very much like hardwood. Use safety glasses and common sense like anything else when using power tools !!

Anyhow, I posted [2] methods I used in the Equipment pages under the Speaker Cabinet heading, in case anyone wants to give it a try. Don't be intimidated because it is metal !! It's a bit time consuming, but when completed you'll have clips !!

Once again, Hello out there..........glad to be part of great community.

GERV* (oOO\(IIII)(IIII)/OOo)

My pleasure.............I learned so much here, I figured it's time to give back.

I'm also a gear junkie and much of my recently acquired "necessities" were purchased using this forum as a guide.......still don't have enough though............

He showed up with a gift...classy!
It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold for very long
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind
It seems like all this life was just a dream
