Hello,

Just a follow up on the rubber tube in the ear.
see, i was sharing a cheap, easy solution to tracing down sounds.
Some of you might have a longer term need though, and a willingness to
spend a few more dollars.

What we actually did at work was to modify a stethoscope.
that works much better for comfort and applies the sound to both ears.
after the two ear pieces come together, and there is a rubber tube a short
distance, just take off the end and add a short metal tube.
metal because it is easier to point.

Since all you need is the tubing effect, cheap, even toy stethoscopes go a
long way for convenience and comfort.

reminder:
just put a noise source in the space to be tested, go outside and listen
through the tube. it's highly directional and will make finding sound
leaks easy :-)

Oh, and for those who like humor, the 'foil hat' is optional ;-)

Sorry about that one Steve .... I tried it out, with just a piece of tube ...
and was amazed at how well it worked (I'm sure the pipe, stethoscope upgrades
make it work even better) ... and yes ... just as I had predicted ... my
neighbor did spot me on my knees at the front door to my studio with a tube
in my ear.

He walked over and asked if I was feeling alright. I told him "NO"!, and
sent him home to snatch up two cold emergency beers and make us a pair of tin
foil hats.

I like the part about the hats..... to quote Monty Python "people are not
buying enough hats"

I've gotta know, do the hats work better facing true north, or magnetic
north?

See, we used a top-hat and *purple* cape.
The incantation went like this:
Ohwa tanu tyam!

so, i just followed what i was taught, and never really tried a *tin* hat.
And of course, when it works, you don't always analyse the possible
variations.
