THAM 15

Sulaiman and Morgan have been throwing this wonderful Days Like This Friday after-work gig by The Lake for months now. Being that we are Little Bass Heads, Mike and I decided that they needed some more bass (ya’ think?!?) The design specifications we used are as follows:

1) Powered off 12 volts

This is critical …

Bike Part – 07-21-21

Download the Fusion 360 file (here)

I changed up the handle on the Bike Party box. The system now includes a single metal “bar handle” on the top and two inset hand-holds on the sides. This should make the box stronger, easier to carry for one person and trivial to carry with two.

Thanx Caroline …

Is that Ulan-proofed?

I set the CNC table on fire Friday. It got really bad because our two fire extinguishers were empty. I ended up throwing water on the 9″ diameter burn. If the flame retardant stuff hadn’t worked, we could have lost the table.

I built the new Bike Party system (complete with the charred door …

Mike has some thoughts

Mike played around with the Bike Party system from 11-12-20 and shared the following thoughts.

Updates and birthdays

Over the last week I have made lots and lots of edits to the design from tiny to rather large. And I have gone to two wonderful birthdays. One was for one of the youngest members of my family, Anzani Mlaudzi, and the other was for one of my dear mentors, Deborah Small.

3 things

We need three things:

1) An on/off button to cut power.

2) A battery monitor that will cut power when the battery declines to 12v or 50% (for lead-acid).

3) A plug to connect the battery recharger to the battery.

The new Bike Party system contains:

(1) JBL Stage 1210 12″ woofer

(2) …
