Wood dust and metal tools are enemies. The only way to keep the metal tools hapy ks to isolate them. I needed a way to them in their happy oiled up domain. I decided against cupboards and favoured Air tight drawers. There is a need for a gasket… but by design they should work without it when properly pushed back.
This is what i came up with.
Adding to the book list for 2015. Lots learned and so much more to learn!
I developed the Software, here are the visual basic files for you to download and learn from:
You can’t just buy one or two screw drivers for xmas, a whole set is a MUCH better idea.

Xmas is coming! As we know sound guys are the most difficult people to buy for. Over the last few year I’ve posted some suggestions, here is day 1!
This came to my attention from the EEVBLOG https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETCOhzU1O5A love this guy.
It’s an awesome price for a very powerful little machine. Include probes and USB cable.
I love these Logitech Marble Mouse trackballs, I have one for every computer. After a few years they slow down physically. Cleaning the dust off does not help enough, something different needed to be applied. I’ve been researching lubricants and oils, doing some tests with households; but I think I’ve found the perfect fluid. Ian Gomes of Union Sound Company made a recommendation a few years back for Penny and Giles faders. A quick amazon search lead me to Lucas Silicone Shock fluid. I must report that it is the perfect product for this application. If you need a drop, I’ll send you a q-tip of it in the mail.
I needed a way of Generating Code, lots of code. In cadsoft eagle, the Keyboard Assignments are completely user customizable. They have a script language that allows you to modify the software. I’ve used hundreds of the ULP and SCRs and decided to write my own Generator.
