Mine is just my first initial and the Wheel of Fortune way of spelling my last name. The 1, well, there's only one of me I guess.

Mine is my 1st name along with a hint at what I do when not blowin snow.

I mentioned the SBF to a buddy yesterday and he thought the forum was about "coke". When I explained it to him he immediately lost interest.

=================================

I happen to own a 1916, two horsepower, Waterlooboy hit & miss flywheel engine. The Waterlooboy company was bought out by John Deere in 1918. They added their name to the ID tag and sold them until 1924, when the engine was replaced with one of John Deere`s own design. ---- John

Coby7 is a user name I adopted when I entered the Cobalt forums after purchasing an 07 Cobalt so my daughters could go to university and stay at home. Shortly after I had to purchase a second because the daughters had different schedules so I bought a 2010 wreck and fixed her up.

A db130 is a mono tube amplifier from David Bogen. Someone gave it to me at a tech flea market with all of its tubes missing, but I was able to buy the missing tubes at the same flea market that day. Lo and behold, it worked! If you guys are old enough to know the smell of tubes and the "warm" music it generates, you'll appreciate it more.

A derivative of a military radio call sign, but that's been many moons ago, so I figured it's not likely to be repeated. Of course nowadays, I spend my hours in front of students, and not troops. I miss the days of wall to wall counseling.

From the ground up:



Attention to Detail:





Premium components:





If I'd built that, I'd be proud.



Prouder still that here's Jr. doing it, age 11, intro to electricity 101.

I helped a little... he did most of the board, tricky wiring my department.



Lights up a pair of Focal Chorus 706's real nice.



/hijack, sorry... :eek:

Yanmar because, Yanmar. Ronin, because nobody tells me where to go.
