Am trying to make the availability and pricing of the Ls, Cs and Rs easier and keep the pricing consistent. Here is a link to a spreadsheet that will be updated as parts leave:


The Ls will sell by weight at $6/lb - which is about twice the spot commodity price for copper, so cheap.
Canary Caps $1.30 per mfd.
Caddock Rs = $3ea.

I'll just add up all of your cap values, weigh the lot of inductors.

I also have some 20ga bobbins between 0.25Mh and 3.0mH, good enough gauge for shunts. If anyone's interested I'll add them the the speadsheet.
Nice, thank you for putting that together.

Pat, those of us who have already posted in this thread, would you like us to total everything up that we need and send it to you or have you already done that? Let me know whatever works best for you; I know your busy.

Yeah, I think that rather than me guessing at each guy's tolerance for substitution, it'd be better for you to make those choices and send me your list.

For shunt caps I do have a pile of Solens in values from 1 to 100mfd. I'll try add those to the spreadsheet, maybe ceramic Rs too.

Sounds great. I'll consolidate everything I'm looking at into a list and PM it to you. Thanks again Pat!

WBT post and Bybee blocks need a home.

Gold $30, Chrome $20.
Bybees $100/pr. You'll never pay full price for these, so you may as well grab them cheap!

Now you’re just being cruel. I already have a carload of stuff with you. Plus a set of drivers for a great project. You have to rub it in with this?
Yes. What's worse is that they're big and heavy. This stuff is clogging up a trailer that I'd like to empty and sell. I have a boat, too. 20' cuddly i/o. 30 knots speedy. Am about to gift it to the kiddies. Fill it with speakers and drag it all home! Fill that garage!

How much you want for the trailer? :)

The 14 ft version of this, so single axle:

Ramp rear door, great for rolling in your toys. Needs the skylight dome replaced, sunlight baked it to pieces. Maybe dragged it a hundred miles.. Uno kilobucko. Registration and inspection lapsed. ALL suburbanites need a trailer. ;)

Ford says 1000 lbs and 12 sq feet. Perhaps I don’t have the most practical car?
I just realized a use for autonomous cars that I could actually get behind. An autonomous shadow-trailer that just cruises behind your car ten feet back, doing whatever you do while watching out for other cars. No hitch, it just drives itself behind you....patent pending.

Ha, ha, ha. I'd like to get a pic of you dragging that trailer behind your hotrod sled. I'll paint some flames shooting out of the wheel wells if that helps. Something like my Shearwater HOTRODS;

BOY! Did that pair ever PISS OFF the crusted-over establishment audio guys when we kept putting them out in the public spaces at CES 2006.

The show management kept asking us to desist which, of course, we did not. No fun allowed! Audio is serious! Not dignified don't you know?

So we filled a few of the hotel's conspicuous ornamental trees with fake birds.

Brilliant. I love stirring up crap at audio shows.

My best audio show memory was having some fun with the guys from Oracle. They were sharing their very large room with Reference 3A. At my request, they played, and CRANKED, Lonely Boy by the Black Keys. Tash from Reference 3A was pissed, but It was a customer request. The truly fun part is we had real live girls come into the room, and dance yet. Fun and dancing at an audio show! The horror!
