    Baking sourdough wheat bread for fist time ever. This actually started already 2 days ago when I started to feed the "mother dough" that I got from friends.
    Sourdough dark rye bread is common around here but sourdough wheat bread is lot more rarity.

    Breads are now in oven, made some mishaps in the beginning of the process but they have leavened really nicely in the oven and look good so far!

    For the stereo install, check out Crutchfield, they do a really good job of putting all the pieces needed together in one bundle, such as the things you've mentioned needing. If you have steering wheel stereo controls you can get another little box that will allow you to connect the controls to the new stereo. I've done a couple, including a nice Pioneer with Nav and back up camera in our Outback (that was about 4 Christmases and b'days for my wife). It takes a while, especially making the wiring harness, but it's pretty straightforward. The back up camera will take a bit of time with feeding the wire through the car to the back (sedan or car with a hatch?), but that's also not too bad if you take your time.

    Give me a shout if you need any tips.
    Installing this guy, didn't order the steering wheel control box, might add it in later. It accepts that fancy one that also hooks into the OBDI connector for advanced features. It's a minivan, yes, will take time to snake the wire. Today however I want to see if my 10EE fires up.

    Some success was had today with getting the gear box shaft apart... Finally got the stuck gears moving! I had to make my own expanders or spreaders from M8 bolts and coupling nuts that I turned down so they'd fit. Then I was able to spread some of the stuck gears apart and I can now see the key where it had sheared (2nd pic). Now to consider the next step...





    All this work to shift them a lousy 15mm or so.

    Not too bad for first try:


    50/50 ordinary wheat and Spelt Wheat. Wifey and 6 year daughter have gone trough the large loaf already

    Looks like my wife's sour dough.

    Spent a day making tooling (past 3 days actually), to make more tooling, just so I can make some parts. Seems I've been getting all the oddball jobs at work lately and they all fall just outside our normal work envelopes and available tooling. Fun times .

    Started bending conduit, was going to get power into the RPC then my back decided to spasm out. At least I hope it is muscle related.

    that looks really similar to the one I installed - https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130520...C-5200NEX.html

    works a treat, sounds good and means I have navigation when my wife and her smartphone aren't with me Installation took a couple of days. Natural light (or high CRI LEDs) is really helpful when making the harness as some of the wires can look similar under fluorescent lights. I put the mic up the drivers A pillar and tucked it behind the header. The back up camera went along the sill, into the trunk and up the D pillar then through the cable pass through into the hatch. Removing the trim is one of the time consuming parts. Good luck when you get to it, it'll be worth it!


    Me - I fixed a leaking outdoor tap, then the leaking hose to carousel connection then the hose sprung a leak. Called it quits then

    Welcome to the club Dan! This has been my entire (v.short) machining experience and lately my day job has had the same issue.
    Sometimes it's difficult (when put on the spot) to come up with things you've made that aren't for the shop or for one of the machines or for making another tool.

    RB211: I feel your pain - quite literally at the moment. No good reason for it either. Went to the beer festival and that helped (for the day) as they served liquid analgesic from many, many taps...and cans

    No idea if that NEX you have suffers the same issue as mine (different model, same line) but I'll tell you in case you stumble across it. They (my model, at least) don't seem to like it when the voltage drops as you start the engine. The problem is that as soon as you turn the key, they get power and start coming on (I believe they restore from a static hibernation image - if that makes any sense) but when the engine cranks, the voltage drops and they through a strop. This means they sit there totally blank for a minute or two (you know, when you really want the reversing camera!) and then start up.
    It seems to be affected by the speed you turn the key but if you have a button-start engine (as I do) it's hits that sweet spot (or sour spot, if you like) every time. Pioneer support are less than useless. A better battery (much over-rated) improves it but doesn't totally fix it.
    If you suffer the problem, maybe PSTechPaul can spec a suitable capacitor and diode to bridge the droop.
