Do NOT underestimate the value of those so-called "multi-tools" they sell these days.

You know what? I HAVE one of those and didn't even think about using it. I THOUGHT about using my Rotozip, but I 'm terrible with it and I couldn't fit in to make the cut using it anyway, so I went with the keyhole saw.

How would these work on nails?

With the right cutoff blade, it should work fine.

(Sorry about the thread hijack.)

Depends on the blade, but yes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfouUzFpQJA

I've got the sideways cutting drill bits for my Dremel and that's just a horror free-hand. With a straight-edge you can control it pretty well, but it's still a lot of material being spat at you plus you really need two hands to hold the thing.

Well I can say that I'm not as shocked at the inability of Tom to handle power tools as I am that the GG is still sticky after such a long period of time. Very interesting.

Glad to hear that you are still slowly but surely making progress.

Sorry, boy and girls....

We didn't complete everything over the weekend so I'm going to hold the update until we do. Right now, we're talking Thursday evening. POSSIBLY not until Saturday.

So stay tuned Kiddies! And don't conk your little brother or sister on the head with an 18" pipe wrench or try to gouge their eyes out!

Apparently, we have some grasshoppers.

You see, in Dimension X the ending IS the beginning and the beginning IS the ending. There is no "time" as we know it. Only movement through space, which is non-linear. You can move forward, backward, sideways and up and down, although that is beyond human comprehension.

And I didn't even officially get LOGANED (until today ) - someone just dropped his name and it wiped me out for two years! - powerful mojo, but I trust BIG will keep me from wiping out this time!

Make that, you haven't been LOGANED until TODAY.

BIG may very well be the ONLY answer.

OK, fans....BIG update!

Two weeks ago, I got a little something delivered....


OK, FOUR somethings....


Then a couple of days later I had THIS delivered....


So I cleared out the theater area


My buddy Mike, Max and I started to install the carpet....


A couple of hours later and the floor was done and we gave up for the day.


Then last week I had THESE delivered...


Mike came back to carpet the stage. Notice who is working and who is supervising.


And ALL the carpet is done!


So, first things first....
Haul those chairs down there and set them up!


Temp hang my deck screen and set up the Axiom M60s...


And finally, you guessed it....HANG THE PROJECTOR!


So, there was nothing left to do except set up my little receiver form the deck and the upconverting DVD player and fire up that puppy!

One word....
AWESOME.

Even with only DD5.1 and DVD, AWESOME. I played the beach scene from Saving Private Ryan and the Aliens rising from the street from War of the Worlds. Floor and seats shaking and I don't have the ButtKickers setup yet. Most importantly, LOGANESS says she only hears what sounds like distant thunder. Nothinhg else.

So even with the open concept, all the "soundproofing" and treatments have paid off. I am, to say the least, stoked.
post #3202 of 3640
Wow! That carpet is awesome! Had I seen a sample, I don't think I would have liked it, but it really looks nice in the theater. I guess I'm just hopeless at picking that sort of thing, but I can sure tell I like it once it's installed.

I also like that you took the time to line up the pattern on the stage. Great job all around!
post #3203 of 3640
Wow, that looks great. Good job on matching that carpet! I would not be brave enough to try and install that myself!
post #3204 of 3640
Tom,

I for one am really excited for you as I know all that you have gone through just to get to where you are today. Everything looks fantastic, and it is all coming together. Love the carpet, love the seats, and dig the Axioms. Interested in hearing your impressions on the Axioms as they were on my short list of speakers I was considering. Did you go with one of their subs as well? Enjoy the fruits of your labor my friend you have definitely earned it.

Regards,

RTROSE
post #3205 of 3640
Congratulations! That looks awesome! Which model Axioms did you buy? What are you doing for a screen?

Thanks for the kind words!

I am EXTREMELY pleased with the carpet and the install Mike did for me. He used to do it for a living, so he knows what he's doing.

By the way, I got the carpet from Ken at Stargate Cinema. You all should know him as he's a great contributor. He was great to work with and the carpet arrived exactly as ordered and on time. The carpet is made By Joy Carpets, it's called Walk of Fame. The sample does not do it justice. And, as I've said before, it was 1/3 the price of what I was going to originally put down. AND I can save this carpet in the event of another, you-know-what.

AND I can't forget that the chairs came form Roman. Excellent service as his usual. Highly recommend using him. The seats are Berkline 12010's in black leather and electric. With Butt Kickers. I find them really comfortable for my height. There is a point where the legs go up and the back leans back for perfect head support for me. And Max seems to like them as it took about two minutes for him to climb up there.

I had picked up used from Cathan his Axiom Center 150, 2 QS8s and an SVS 20-39PC Plus Cylindrical Sub. So I bought two Axiom M60 towers and a third QS8 for a center surround.

Ultimately, for the screen, I have the original SMX AT material from when he was selling out and stopping the off-the-roll sales. MY plan was to make an electric screen from parts. However over time, I found an Elite Electric (non AT) for less than I can build it, so I bought it. It was SUPPOSED to be delivered last week an I was hoping to include it in the pics above. It's due in today. My plan is to replace the material with my own.

HOWEVER....I probably won't be doing that until I'm ready to bring down the BD player and the Denon 3806 receiver and really dial everything in. For now, I'll enjoy what I have set up....SD and all. I'm STILL blown away. So, it's safe to say that I really like the M60s.

For any locals, I plan to be around Saturday and I have two requests. It's still a work zone, but you can certainly get a good idea of the room's performance.

Request 1) Anyone have a couple (as in, two) of quality F connectors for Quad Shielded coax? I can't seem to get mine to work and I'm using the cheap stuff.

Request 2) Anyone have one of the old SD demo disks they'd be willing to let me copy? It seems that all of the old links are dead. I have the Blue Ray Demo, would like the SD one for now.

P.S. You da MAN!
post #3209 of 3640
Wow Tom! That is awesome. I am digging the carpet. I think I'll take a look at Stargate Cinema for my room now as well. I don't know if I can install myself though.

There is a new project that just started up for a series of demo discs that go on dual layer DVD's. Might be a good option for you to check out.

Thanks! I got a couple of quotes to install only, and it's not that big of an expense. But my buddy wanted to help out. If anything, it may have cost me MORE to do it myself (well for Mike to do it) but that's because Home Depot only sells the pad by the full roll and we only needed half. An installer should only charge you for what was used. And we had to rent the power stretcher but that only added about $20 to the project. I figure I'll hold on to the rest of the pad in case of another you-know-what. Again, based on my original carpet selection I'm WAY ahead. And remember that "free installation" is never FREE. They'll build it into the cost of the carpet.

Yes, I'm aware of that thread, but it's Blue Ray. I'm looking for the old DVD version.
