Odd, they were there, and then they weren't. 
I've put them back but don't know if they will stay put. 
“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.”
Gear: a bunch of second hand stuff and kits.

They disappeared again, and I put them back again.  Somehow images in my gallery at AC don't want to post here.  If they crash again, see

Well, while changing the tonearm to the new pod disaster struck.  Still being sleep deprived from dog hospice and having the wife gone for a few days, I forgot to take the cartridge off the tonearm... and of course, what's mounted on it but the most exposed cantilever ever, a Sumiko Blackbird. 

It already had a Soundsmith retip, so that may be the best option.  Have any of you heard of VAS Audio, a retip service run by a Steve Leung? He was recommended over at AC.

 :duh NO! Been there... It's the worst.

Pod looks great BTW. I've got jellies over your JVC setup.
