Giving something back

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. 

 

Over the the last few months, I’ve been battling the big C.   As have a lot of us over the years. 

 

It made me think of the enjoyment I get out of this site and you clowns has actually got me through a few tough times 

 

I’m feeling pretty good now and will beat this.   ( I still have my hair, not that I have much anyway ). As many of you know I’ve been making cables for members for a few years now. Low cost alternatives to the sometimes overpriced commercial ones. 

 

Anyhows.  I was thinking that maybe some of you from mainly Brissy and the Goldy might want to learn how to 

 

1. Solder

2. Make some cables

3. Have a couple of beers or wines. ( soldering and booze should be ok Right ? )

 

This is will be free.  And you’ll walk away with something you can actually use .  

 

This is an expression of interest I suppose   ( was thinking small groups of maybe 3 on a weekend or even night )

 

Cheers

Hi Bill, 

 

Although I haven't posted or contributed very much to the forum over the years, I wanted to acknowledge your involvement and the pleasure that many members have obviously got from your posts and your range of home-made cables

 

It's people like yourself that make this such a unique and special audio community 

 

Thanks and best wishes for a speedy recovery 

 

Steve

After the mess I made with my last attempt at soldering I would greatly appreciate learning the correct way to do things....but I may be beyond help.

Good on you Bill.

Soldering and booze should be fine.....................................booze and circular saws are problematic!

A shock to hear Bill but great to hear the positivity and the very cool gesture! 

 

Have never met you Bill but having purchased a few items from you over the years, "Legend" is the first word I can think of to describe you!

 

Hope you continue to kick the big C's ass! 🍻

Very sorry to hear that @Bill125812, I wish you all the best with your fight.

 

With all the kindness and generosity you've shown here on SNA it should be us giving back to you.

 

If there's anything I can do or donate to help you with what you're going through I would be more than happy to do so.

Thank you so much.  But I’m absolutely fine in that way.  I have family and great friends.  Work is very understanding.  So all good  👍

Hi Bill,
I'm fairy new to SNA and just wanted to say, God bless you man. Even though you are going through your toughest challenge, you are still reaching out to others. You are an inspiration.

I would love to learn how to make cables. Unfortunately l live in WA. But l wish you all the best and hope you beat that bastard of a disease, to which l have no doubt.

Wishing you the quickest of recoveries Bill.

Hard to find a more generous, positive, and helpful member on this forum. This is yet another example of what a top bloke you are.
