No amount of snow could keep them away, they arrived beaten but not broken and quaffed some ale and listened to some music. They brought booty from the land of Walter in the form of GE pyranol caps. In speaking with the caps, they are proud to be near their homeland next to the Hudson River, but will accept the task of their 1000V rating (dude 4uf @ 3KV) and may relocate to the land of elvis near another great river and reside in the home of another mythical builder.
The man named chris gifted me some exotic #36 wire for my RS labs tonearm to be re-wired with and any excess wire after the deed is done may travel to the land of Schroeder. I completed the deal with the other traveler who shall remain nameless for now for security reasons and returned his Panasonic cartridges and granted him some electronic gear to power said cartridges.
Given the nature of air travel these days, I enclosed inside the box a signed paper justifying the movement of such a device in order to expedite things.
