A new "project" for The Horse! Boredom be damned!

I just got a pair of Altec "Bolero" speakers in to restore. They are from around 1970. I have already fixed some damaged corners, and will work on them slowly and steadily for about two weeks. They should look good when I'm done. They weigh only about 45 lbs each, so I may give them a listen. Internet reading suggests they're really good vintage loudspeakers. I'll charge $150 for the restoration. What "projects" are you working on these days?

I have not restored anything for a long time and had plans to make a coffee table out of a tree trunk. However I put a clay dish of candles on it and it looks so good in the garden like that I am not going to do that any more. Yours looks like a good project and I hope we get to see the speakers when they are finished.

I don't know. I know the Henry Kloss history: AR, KLH, Advent, etc. But I don't know the JBL etc. history. Something to look up. These are the Cs, with the three-position switch. Am I going to like the sound? Right now I have my KLH 6s hooked up.

That's good you have a new project. We have a repair to make to the caravan sink and a new aerial to put on the Toyota. And I'm burning leaf litter trying to make the place safer for summer. Other than that - nothing much. lol
