Knocked these up at work

Recommended Posts

Goodaye all

 

Knocked these up at work today.

Some new stands for the KEF Concerto's.

They weigh 13.7kgs each at the moment theirs a bag of morter to go in them yet.

Should end up just under 24kgs each.

 

Fettle them up.

Paint then satin black and put some whites isolater under them.

Should be solid enough and the cost even better.

 

Yes, the boss asked me what l was doing😗😀

 

Really need to get back on the project behind them.

 

regards Bruce

It’s a shame you’re in Victoria, you’d be my man for making a nice sturdy telescope pier...

I’m in central west NSW and was planning on building some speaker stands soon. Dunno if my welding is good enough to do what you want/clean enough but message me if you’re interested.

Took me 2.5 hrs to cut and weld, l have a plasma cutter at work .

Used the work mig as it is higher amperage than my home one.

Maybe another 2 hours work to finish.

Will be finishing them off tomorrow l hope.

 

If l had t pay for material's it would be around $50.

In the past l have made stuff for myself then had to make some more for the boss.

 

Oversaw my son building a reo cutter for work the last week, not bad for a first attempt.

Mk11 will be more refined, will get a pic tomorrow.

Filled them with concrete yesterday and put 2 coats of paint on today.

Had my heater running to warm them up a bit.

Here's a tip you can get a piano finish in satin on metal with a  gloss spray pak.

3 coats then wet and dry, 2 more coats then just use hand cutting paste.

Will bring down to a satin finish that looks so deep you could swim in it.

The old table you previously used looks like a lightweight $5 piece of Indonesian "whatever" bought from Freedom (Mrs.Feline bought a few for her work). 

I'm sure your new stands would make a significant audible improvement for your speakers - they are certainly a visual improvement!

You are fortunate to have an understanding boss and access to a well-equipped workshop.

You are right about the table, bass is a little better.

l have a good boss and over the years there has been a bit of give and take.
