I've started the earliest steps in building some Maple and Black Chrome outriggers for my M60s.

Hoping to get them done in the next week or so, but I've said that before and stuffs pops up on my TTD (Things To Do) list....

Just in time to help me with my CD jewel case photo. Please see thread on compilation CDs in Hearing Things. Free Lobster and Beer and if you do it on the July 1st time frame you can also photograph Collective Soul, Billy Talent, Our Lady Peace, and the Tragically Hip, just to name a few!! Cause I know you like to do that sort of thing....

OK, I'm kidding but hey the offer still stands.

Seriously, if you love rock coming from your Axioms, here is a plug for our annual summer festival. This is by far, the biggest concert line up ever in Eastern Canada, East of Toronto anyways.

3 Night Concert Lineup.

Well it seems that they are not wiling to customize them, at least not what I want, to make two slots, one on each size...so given that I work in the glass industry, I decided that will try to make a CNC machined platform out of 1/2" thick tempered glass, that IMO will look even better...But here is my next problem, is there anybody here that has a drawing of the bottom of the M80's speakers. I got a problem in my back, a disc in the spine is busted, and to move them for me is a big problem, and may need a help of a friend, etc...I asked Alan about the CAD drawing some tim ago, and never got it...

Guys I really appreciate any help...!!!! Depending on the price and the look I will consider making them in the future...

Sov-
I just about finished my wood outriggers when my neice and nephew came to visit for the week and work came to a halt. I'll be installing them after they leave this weekend and will draw/upload an image of the speaker bottom with the threaded insert locations for you before Monday....

Sorry.

Well, not really. Actually, I haven't listened yet.

I finally found a few hours to get the new speaker feet done to replace these:



(They're starting to stink as they are a couple of years old and I don't think the Hobo had great hygiene to start off with!)

This was my original plan, but many pointed out that taking a chainsaw to the M60s above the bottom woofer probably wasn't a good idea....



....and this is what I ended up with:







I have to decide how to finish them, but I'm leaning towards am ebony stain that will let a little of the grain show through (Maple stock). I set up the spikes to give me another couple of inches of height (M80 Envy, maybe?) and to tilt them back a couple of degrees.

If anyone wants more / better photos, I can post them to a seperate site...

I love those, count me in for a set for my M80's please, I could provide the dimensioning or we could twist some arkms in Axioms to get the drawings...

Hey Sov:
I wasn't planning on going into production with them, I just figured I'd post to give others such as yourself some ideas... \:\)
