Hi Dave

I wish you well in all of your future endeavors; scaled back or not. You are a credit to this very often unforgiving industry/hobby.  I am happy to be a client and enjoy the fruit of your labor. Take a step back, a deep breath and review the overall picture. Re-set your priorities as needed and do what's ultimately best for DAVE. Especially, health-wise.

All the best to you.

Dave,
You contribute so much and your Uber is the best product Iíve ever used! Itís good, sometimes, to take a step back and reflect. Hopefully, the many happy customers who appreciate you and your products will outweigh the few who can make your life miserable
Thanks for everything!
Nick
People have very little to do with all of this in actuality.  My struggles have been primarily self inflicted by doing too much grunt work out in the shop by myself.  I have tried to find assistants that will do the quality of work that I demand from myself and that is the difficult part.  Primarily the issue is my spinal problems.  I can be just fine one moment, turn around to pick up something relatively light  and blow the back out.  Ii have had periods of a month that I just couldn't do physically demanding work because of a mis-step.  My hands aren't all that good either, but I can work around them most of the time.  Osteoporosis and essentially inoperable spine issues suck.  When I saw the surgeon after my biopsy he told me that the odds of success versus a wheel chair and he was reluctant to do it anyway.  I blew that off during our consultation.  The look of horror on Gayle's face at the thought of me in a wheelchair was all it took.

There are a lot of factors in play and clientele is a very small part of them, but one that must be considered along with the familial and medical ones.  One of the big ones is my infernal luck with shippers.  Since I started doing this bit of life's journey I have had shipping (or lack thereof) account for over $10K in unrecoverable losses and that is not a small thing to a cottage industry guy like me.  What transpired over the last week and a half is a BIG part of what is driving my decision making.  The people that I have tried to deal with getting the whole cluster resolved were unable and seemingly unwilling to help me sort this out.  To say that this kind of thing is grinding is an understatement.  Stupid me, I just expect the system(s) to work.  99% of the time they do, but when they don't it is a pisser for me and my clients. 

Final analysis: the buck stops here.  Reality often has no influence on observation or opinion.

Whine over.

There are some plans in their infancy.  We'll just have to see how they play out. I can't and don't want to quit working.  I watched too many people retire and rust to death.  Ain't my way.

Thank you for all of the kind comments.

I just set up an new/old turntable, new tonearm, just repaired cable, and a borrowed phono stage.... so I needed to play something I knew really well.



Ah, I see the rewiring,etc has all come together. Congrats!!
