    I would think twice bbefore using acoustic carpet, it is designed to let sound and air through and is not strong enough for this purpose. Within a very short time it will start fluffing and making bubbles where not stuck down harshly.

    Rather use automotive carpeting and stick down with contact or if on powder coating Sika. the carpeting is about R120/m and Sika about R 150 per tube.

    Believe me if acoustic could be made to work in our application someone would have found out how by now, I use plenty meters every month and there is no way I will put my name to acoustic

    I got some heavy use auto carpet from Pro Auto rubber in Milnerton, R150 / m, 2 m wide.
    Some of it is stuck down on painted plywood with spray adhesive, some with contact.

    Finished this butchers block for my wife last week. The wood came from a barn built c1890, it was put in a skip with some concrete before i rescued it.

    No nails or screws were used. Dovetails, tenons and dowel pins only.

    So this has nothing at all to do with 4x4, but the Jeep is parked, and she will stay there until the little germ has left our shores...

    First project was to manufacture a set of Revox clone NAB adapters for my Otari MX5050-BII, this machine has a completely different reel clamping system to almost everything else out there, so off I went wasting aluminium...

    The entire write-up including tons of pics is here, its too much to recapture here, but if you like spanners and aluminium chips, take a look and leave some feedback, its always nice to know what people think, either way..

    The since that was done and dusted, I pulled out the old Revox B77 and decided to modify her for a real time digital counter conversion...

    This was one hell of a project, the electronics was relatively easily since I had already ventured down this road about 30 years ago on my Technics RS-1500 machine, but the implementation and machining, especially the optical encoder mechanics, was an absolute nightmare, but you know what.... it worked, even though I had to redo things more times than I am old, ... but worked damn well.

    Again, if you don't like pics of aluminium chips stay out, if you do, then enjoy...

    Let me have some feedback please...

    And then just because I ran out of desire to paint the house, I converted the Revox B77 once again, this time I refaced her to look like the Revox PR-99, much prettier, and yes, another new digital counter, again...

    The change meant removing the front "step" from the chassis faceplate / control panel, re-building everything out of fresh aluminium panel, manually, and some more interesting stuff..

    This is excellent craftsmanship, very well done. hard to believe that wood is so ancient, 130 years and still in good nick.

    Best part is after 130 years you still get the pine scent when cutting or working with it

    First thing my wife comments on when she walks into the kitchen is the " lovely scent". I finished it with boiled linseed oil so the wood and oil combination is quite strong at the moment.

    Counting the rings in the wood gets me to about 110, but i haven't got any pieces that go from the edge to the middle so it will be a fair bit older. I know the date of the barn quite accurately (1893), add the two together and you get the middle of the 17th century.
    Good to know that something that started growing way back then is now being put to good use in my kitchen.

    In my experience this arrangement unfortunately does not stop the rash.
    Many of the gravel particles are knocked forward by the belt, bounce off the road and then up again, passing the sides of the belt.

    The only effective way that I found was to suspend belting as wide as possible i.e. as far out and right across the bottom if possible.
    I used automotive floor mats and that worked well for me.
    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, youíre missing the point.
