1959 Leslie Model 25 Orpheus Spinning Speaker with tube booster amp.
It's an old organ speaker but I'm setting it up for guitar.
It needed new capacitors and a volume control. Fresh tubes didn't hurt either. I had to rig up a make-shift controller but I've got my eye on an original. Still need to figure out why the electric brake isn't coming on and also get proper connectors.
Ever since Hurricane Harvey flood, things been kinda tight around here. My lovely bride of 43 years just bought me my very first 1911 .45ACP. I am just amazed at how well this thing shoots. The target is at 30 feet and is the very first 8 rounds out of the pistol. This is offhand at a local indoor range.
You guys amaze me with your knowledge of analog electronics.
“Rationality belongs to the cool observer, but because of the stupidity of the average man, he follows not reason, but faith, and the naive faith requires necessary illusion and emotionally potent oversimplifications which are provided by the myth-maker to keep ordinary person on course.”

It's a small windows computer that's never been on the internet. The interface was hacked from an old keyboard. The joystick was leftover from the first arcade I built. The rest of the parts came from bins in the garage. Total cost: Zero + a few hours.
