Re: Turn Signal Q's

Thanks Guru... looks like you can use a replacement 313 incandescent or LED according to https://www.eriksmilitarysurplus.com/18burty313an.html Tear down - First the design is simple. Everything is pretty much made so that you can't place something in backwards, etc. You need two Philips head screwd...

Re: Early Straight

Little update on the Angry 5... Not much in the way of music broadcasts on shortwave these days but I always liked the idea of having the fender radios work and usable.
