Thanks Matt, I did try laser marking. Asked one company to do a sample for me. It didn't come out very high contrast. It's sort of grayish looking... and very faint.

Maybe their laser isn't powerful enough? 30 Watts. I haven't tried another company since then.

dactylus: Thanks!

Might also be their laser type. Look for a company that's using a Y-A-G laser. I'll look around at work for some black hardcoated aluminum so I can make and photograph a sample for you.
Out of the game … for now?

All looks very nice.  For me, I'd be tickled just to be able to see the AL through the finish.  I do appreciate the effort so again, +T.

more pictures...



Now, just a matter of putting them boards in a case and doing one final FINAL testing.

PS: Also trying to fix my CNC machine by making a new coupling between the stepper motor and drive screw.


Not doing too good. While the fit is great, there is no vibration damping and I can see that the milled path isn't smooth due to the vibration.  Will need to find another solution.

Hi fivefishdiy
I have been following some of your thread here with interest. Having trouble locating the specs. Could you tell me, about
size
weight
battery type and life
outputs
noise levels
cost

Sorry if you wrote these already, then just the link would do!
Thanks! Keep up the good work.

Good thing the T's have gone away...  ::)

It's small and under 16lb... runs on 7-14vdc providing p48... strictly analog... will make MXL's sound like Schoeps and Schoeps sound like Heaven and as such, everything else you'd need to know is faith based... or found within these pages...

(You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building...)

first trimester    http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,105112.0.html
second trimester    http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,108569.0.html
third trimester    http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,114576.0.html

Plenty of good pictures to go along with the words too.

Sorry for being a dick but I just got up and read this.  One thing about TS is that it requires, some would say demands, that members make a little effort.  Everything ever written about anything is likely to be found within these pages.  I HOPE I've not totally offended you.  I'll CHANGE one of these days.

I did search actually. I read some specs at the beginning of the first thread which did not include weight, noise levels, cost but did say XLR ins and outs. but that was followed by guys on the forum putting in requests and discussion etc. I was hoping that for example other input output options may have been added. I read through quite a bit of the pages on this but to be honest I don't have time to read all 53 pages. Anyway, I thought it might be generally useful for other people too, to have all the specs in one place, up to date. Maybe could post an update to the beginning of each of the 3 threads on the subject?

Sorry if I'm just being dim in not finding the info, despite having searched quite a bit. And, no offense taken.

"but to be honest I don't have time to read all 53 pages."

Yet you expect others to take the time to neatly summarize them for you?  Why?  Is your time more valuable than theirs?

Many people take offense at that attitude on community boards like this one.  Don't be surprised if you see many negative replies to your request.  Why not try to contribute to the community instead and write the summary yourself?  That would be very positively received.

...ask not what Taperssection can do for you, but rather what you can do for Taperssection...

Justinasia,

Most of the specs you asked were covered in one way or another already. Once the product is launched, I'll compile a master list of the specs and put it on my webpage for easy viewing.

Thanks.

also, not sure if you guys have tried...but searching this site *sucks*.
I'd ask first too.
LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.
