you only need to use the searh tool that is linked in my signature to find what you are looking for. Granted the damping scheme changed a few times after this pic was taken..but you get the idea.

Thanks. Consequently I stumbled on faust3d's wiki site with illustration (sorry I'm really new to orthos - but am glad I found it after searching for the ''king of mids" headphones):

Since this is the TP (or T50 mods?) thread, I think this will be helpful if updated on the OP, Br777 please? :) unless this is exclusive to TPs.

post #52 of 2199

Thanks for the tips smeggy and sachu! 

 

Well, If Br777 doesn't mind maybe we'll just keep this as our thread for modding the T50rp. I think I'm going to get my wood tomorrow or friday, so I'll be sure to post pics.

Dis be srrz bizzness yo.

I think I said I'm planning on building these earlier in the thread. Planning since Smeggy first posted the dimensions actually. Won't be able to make them until winter break though.

I think the Leakypants deserve an honorable mention. I want to make a pair of those too.

post #56 of 2199

@Br777, if you could just post those [helpful] links on your OP. Still I hope more people could post their TP photos.

post #57 of 2199

Hey there guys, my search for wood has brought me to ebay

 

what does everyone think of this? 

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/EAST-INDIAN-ROSEWOOD-BOWL-BLANK-BLANKS-2-X-6-X-6-/370385474123?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item563cb1d24b#ht_2046wt_861

 

The main issue that i'm having is not knowing how thick of a piece i need. can somone sugest a thickness for me please? thanks!

post #58 of 2199

I always figured 1- 1 1/2 inch because they look to be about the thickness of an O2 pad.

post #59 of 2199

Yup, about 1 inch give or take. You can always buy the thicker one and saw them in half anyways. something that leaves a margin say 2 inches would be nice too I think, because you'll be able to cut out strips for the mounting brackets as well.

post #60 of 2199

The thickness depends on if you're going to be using a lathe. If you're using a lathe then you need to make sure you have enough thickness so you can turn a tenon and mount it in a jaw chuck. If you have no idea what I'm saying then your probably not using a lathe.

 

For the lathe users, i'd recommend buying a blank of 3'' in thickness and above so you have room to work with. Also, I'm fairly sure you'll need a 4 jaw chuck so if you don't have one you'd better get one.
