    This one isn't too bad (just bulky) but I don't have anything to compare it with at the moment. I remember my marshal 4x12 being heavier but it was also larger and more awkward. My old bass player is very amused as he tried to dump two TE cabs (1 4x10, 1 1x15) on me a while back but I refused!

    Too right! I hadn't ridden in a month (paternity leave) and went out on Tuesday... It was still ridiculous!

    Though not as ridiculous as my boss trading in his recently bought, nice sensible upright position X4 for a hayabusa..!

    Friends dad has asked me to look after this subtle number for the foreseeable... He hadn’t mentioned the size before dropping it off. Luckily it sounds ever bigger than it looks!

    Yeah they’re only held on with rubber grommets, they’re just too deep. I’ve gone with moving the bracket out for now, will see what the plumber thinks.

    Anyone with shower experience, I have one of these brackets to ‘simplify’ attaching a shower bar valve later on.
    Unfortunately I need the horizontal pipe to go through 24mm of wall material and 18mm of escutcheon and the non-threaded section is only 36mm long. Where do I find the missing 6mm?

    A) cut 6mm off the escutcheons - I’m not massive confident they’ll end up even or unscratched.
    B) the wall is two layers, 12.5mm and 11mm so I could cut a window (rather than just two neat holes) into the inner layer and move the bracket out. In my head this means more chance of the seal between pipe and wall failing (11mm of contact instead of 24mm) but perhaps that isn’t really an issue?

    Yeah I don’t know, either way it’s not a lot of anything. The coordination is more impressive, presumably if the car got too far ahead after cut off he’d hit a wall of air and have significant issues...

    200m at that speed is under 3 seconds.

    We have a couple of Made.com items, they look nice and are a bit more solid than the IKEA equivalent but they’re still flat(ish) pack. The finishing is a bit rough and the precision of the self-assembly joints isn’t great.

    We also have a sofa workshop sofa (customised 4-seat Lady May), which is beautifully made but cost more than our car. Not sure I could bring myself to spend that on a sofa again, even though it’s the main sitting device in our house!

    My old company used to make these (by hand!) - annoyingly I can’t remember who or exactly what they were for but I vaguely recall it was to do with office phone systems.
    Possibly for interfacing legacy analog stuff with IP based systems.
