      China has bought up all the companies for cheap that they needed to monopolize the whole world. And materials. We will experience and live thru years of the Great Depression our predecessors did. It’s only gonna get way worse b4 it gets better. Kim

        We own what little we have, we can self substain, we have a garden, freezer, meat on the hoof, game, 2 huge lakes and a river full of fish just down the road, we can get where we need on2 horses if we have too. Could run out of ammo though.

        Well, Im NO fan of Indian construction quality, but they did do a half way decent job with the Royal Enfield , and "some" British Beer that they have taken over production on.

        However, did u know the Chinese make some kickass Tube Amplifiers that rival many Western Amps?

        1 brand even uses a 70 pound block of Aluminum as a base for its amp. However..... rumor has it that quality control can be spotty, but once u get a good one, they r ROCK SOLID and sound beautiful.

          and on that note, last night, while researching installing a new gas tank, I stumbled across the infamous aftermarket fuel tank Lock ring thread on this site that said the "new" lock rings are POS!!

          I did find a site that addresses this and goes out of its way to ensure their rings are OEM quality and BUILT RIGHT, so I guess Ill find out soon when I install it if it will leak or not.

          Do amps move? Or is that for Dampening? All that stuff can be sourced locally as there are quite a few North American vacuum tube manufacturers. IC's would be difficult if those contain any and I would think none needed.

          They were make out of lighter gauge material so they didnt seal as the old heavier ones did.

          Im no expert on the construction of these things, but I do know they are point to point, and any IC's would obviously be mounted to circuit boards.
