    Default Why thank you sir!

    Yes I am pleased with the polishing.

    If existing owners of my ebony armboards want, I can offer a polishing service.

    I could do that at low cost + p&p, and return in post same day.

    Please contact me for details.

    Best Regards,
    Steve

    Here are some more projects made to order that I've been completing;

    This time a tonearm board for Jazzbones' Techi but in a different wood than ebony;



    Can you guess what it is?

    Rough face off and recessed





    Dished



    Fitted out for Linn arms

    (in flash it looks like this - its not that dark)


    In warmer light like this



    Still final rubbing down and polishing to go.

    As for the wood. It's African Blackwood. Slightly more dense than Ebony and harder. Nice grain to it.

    One more for BobC of the warm to go under his amazing plinths







    and an ongoing bass horn project: 1.2m exponentials that will be fitted out with a 15" bass drivers.
    Designed and modelled this to give optimal performance 80Hz to 400Hz. This will be part of a 5 way system.





    Once skinned up, a driver chamber will be fitted to the throat, a surround to the mouth and then tested before finishing.

    Here is the African Blackwood armboard all finished and suitably polished.
    Beautiful grain and markings to this wood.

    Here's a large collet (145mm in diameter) that was a rush job for one of BobC's turntables in time for Scalford

    Here's a pic of recent pair of armboards I made for Mike in the USA.

    African Blackwood on the left, Ebony on the right.



    The armbases are for Ortofon RS-212 and AS-212 arms
