Great job 312.....it really looks like you thought it out very well. What did you use for the back leg and how did you attach it?

Thanks guys...yeah Chief i will get you the parts list tomorrow...

Shooter...the back leg is made from the end of the jug i cut off to put the speaker in...i tacked it on with some super duper glue and bulked up a bunch of hot glue...i was speculative of using hot glue, but it is on there like a champ...i put a lot of pressure on it and it stayed...so we will see...

312 thanks man.
I actually went to that other web site that you were talking about and got the parts list in instructions from there. It looks like you decided to go with a diffrent wireless transmitter/receiver, an input of why you went with that one, or is that what they had available at radio shack?

312...... :ph34r: Don't be giving Chief any of your secrets or any instructions or advice. I know why he want's to build one. :ph34r:



:-P :-P I know from out BC adventure he fancies him self as the world greatest Saber Toothed MarMoo hunter. I think he is going to try and exterminate them from the planet with the help of the caller. He likes to watch the red mist they produce way too much. :-P :-P

Can you tell us about how much you have invested in this call? Excluding your time, which I am sure
is very valuable.....
Short people have feelings too......

Any time you want to use it just let me know. I haven't had it out of the case since it was cleaned upon return for the BC adventure.



:wub: I appreciate the fact you aren't afraid of them. :wub: ;) I get scared just seeing a pic of one of those monsters. ;)
