their truck rides out to pick it up on friday, they store it over weekend and make the necessary deliveries first thing monday morning. So, friday and monday is your best bet but since most people will be doing this in the weekend, it's best to call them and have them keep some aside for you to pick up on friday.
I have the phone number here somewhere, if I find it, I'll post it.

normally I don't read a whole review/howto but for jort's article, I've made an exception :)

the material that i am now using is ertalite or hd-1000 named.

this is something nobody know's, when tim was on the way to here i tested the plexi with lnē and a hammer. it was not breaking.

i think because the plexi was in direct contact with the container and the pressure due the screws it cracks.

so if you use plexi for holddown you should see the plexi doesn't make contact with the baseplate or tube and it w'll be oke:)

Why didn't you just solder the copper?

jort 9th May 2005 21:38

due the extreme temps the solder can crack.
some people do solder it because they don't have the equipment to do, but i DONT recommend soldering:)
