Do you mean shared or sold? I am thinking the latter. No one does anything for free.

So the survey is legit? So if I want to sell myself out for a $15USD vanilla card I'll actually get one?

That makes sense. So L.E.K. seems to be real enough but this survey seems sketchy. Did IFPA get hacked or just sell our information to the lowest bidder?

I have a 1080p 47" LG LCD from 2008. I paid over $2K for it back then. The same TV today is probably $600-$800. It weights a ton. Maybe they used through-hole components. I don't see any problem with the blacks. I work as a broadcast technician. My company sells video production switch equipmen...

OK. But Tim, originally the nut plates were always installed the other way at the factory. Maybe you have improved the past. :D Hugs, Rob Ha! I was waiting for you to chime in.

4 hours later and it's up on legs... 20180722_170333.jpg I installed the leg bracket with the flange side pointing in. My thought process was that the bolt would be pushed in the bracket and the bowl on the opposite side of the flange would center the bolt so that it would thread properly. The other...

Re: Old Stern - How do you put the legs on?

I removed the second plate. Now that I was able to hold them both in my hands I still think this is an after-market fabrication. The metal isn't even cut square, and the one was held in with a spiral nail and a finishing nail. I'm going to install the new leg system. One last question, does the flan...

Re: Old Stern - How do you put the legs on?

I doubt those rear plates are original. You could use washers and nuts to hold the legs on, it's not hard to do with the head removed. Or replace with the proper type of plate. I'm was starting to think they are not original too so I decided to remove one. When I did I saw that two different types ...

Re: Old Stern - How do you put the legs on?

On mine, the plates press-fit into the wood when the legs are tightened and are held in with a spike. Front and back are the same small-ish plate. I have seen some games that have a second large cross-plate on the inside that covers over and prevents you from using bolts that are excessively long. ...
