Here is a new batch of speakers for iPods iPhones etc.  Made these a few weeks ago, but finally wired them up today and took the pictures.

Thank you kindly.

A little story related to these creations:

When I first started posting speakers a few years ago, it was pointed out to me (by Drew, I believe) that brass grommets would be ideal to put in the holes where the wire protrudes as to prevent damage to the wire.  I got some simple grommets for tarps with a simple set of tools to install and indeed they worked great.  A few months ago I suddenly could not find the grommets in the shop to save my life.  I felt like I looked everywhere, but they were gone.  A mysterious grommet thief, no doubt.  I ended up even making a few pieces without the grommets.  Finally after numerous searches, I broke down and bought a new set.   They were cheap and I should have done it sooner.  Now I wanted to be sure that I would not loose these too.  Where should I put them?  I decided half a spray paint can was the ideal holder and it would fit nicely on a shelf near the work bench.  So a cut a can in half, filled it with the grommets and the pieces need to install them and went to place them on the shelf. 

Have you guessed the ending?

There on the shelve in an identical can was the first set, tools and all.
Must be getting old.

Haha! That's why I seem to have at least two of many things...

I still love the color you get those to be and it's easy.

Thanks!

The door does open.  I removed the guts of the lock so any thing that can be stuck in the key hole will open it.  Inside is a electrical outlet suitable for plugging in an charger or whatever.  Poke the wire back inside and hide the iPod inside.

Thank you all. I don't get bored, because I do so many different things. I still make more little bells than anything else, but don't post them here.
There are days when I am not feeling very creative, so I make little bells.
On days when I feel extra creative I make airships.
The other stuff falls somewhere in between.

Not a single one I don't like, although I prefer the brass to the silvery/ nickel.

You certainly bang 'em out, and at high quality, may I add........

I suppose if this is your living and not a hobby, you can't afford to get bored, soldier on whatever.

Good luck at the shows, they will sell well methinks..... (fingers crossed)

Agree with the rest, fabulous!

When metalworking, one must solder on, regardless...

More nice work, Maets!
Very elegant the first couple, and I like the one with the iPod hidey-hole.
