Re: Help needed with the science of heat.

I would very much doubt there would be any damage due to heat transfer through the air (the thermal conductivity of metals are ~1000x that of air). I don't think the silicone would last in contact with a hot exhaust. I think your saddlebag maker is probably correct if you set up the bags with you on...

Re: Gold coast

You probably already know but Fraser Island and Australia Zoo are on the Sunshine Coast so at least 2+ hours from Gold Coast.

Re: Latest round of Allans Billy Hyde clearout?

No idea, I drove past the Brisbane store about 1 month ago and it had a sign saying it was closed. Unfortunately I am not surprised that they closed again, the Brisbane store was massive but had almost no stock (only really Gibson owned brands) and very unhelpful staff. My mate went in to buy a guit...

Re: Fancy Neck Woods?

If I was buying for myself the three necks I would be looking at are: 1) Roasted Maple 2) Wenge 3) Status Graphite Based on what you said I think roasted Maple would be the closest to what you want. I hadnt even looked at Roasted Maple to be honest! I assumed it was just a "Make it pretty" gimmick ...

Re: are nut slot hieights misunderstood?

I've always worked on fret the second fret and the string should just clear the nut. Any good luthier should file the nut to the correct height as part of the setup.

Re: Who is obsessive about their coffee??

My understanding is that the features of the
machine and quality of the coffee produced is excellent. Just don't expect it to last 10+ years like an Italian machine.

So far I am in love with this machine.

Re: Who is obsessive about their coffee??

My old Sunbeam cafe Crema finally died the other week. Upgraded to a Breville Dual Boiller - so far this thing is fantastic. Got all the features I was after - measured shots, steam and pull shots at the same time. Also got it for a great price brand new with 5 year extended warranty (I am expectin...

Re: Advice on Qantas Frequent Flyer points...

I have flown a heap for work and have used points to go to Europe twice and USA once. I also did like you and signed up for a new CC and then once I got the bonus points I cancelled.
