Alexia

Recommended Posts

We got an Alexia for Christmas and we love it. I ask it to play Elvis and it does. Karen asks it to add something to her grocery list and it adds it to a list on her iPhone. It does make an error once in a while, but it is learning. If you want any kind of info, it knows. It will remember any list or data you want and put it on your phone. It will send messages for you to anyone in your address book. I like the weather report, set a timer or wake up time.

Now try this..  If you have a stereo receiver, you can buy a small cable that attaches to Alexa and goes into the AUX input of your receiver.  Then when you ask Alexa to play your favorite song, it will be in unbelievable stereo sound!  Actually better than the radio sound.  Under 4 bucks./Amazon.

Now that you are 65, will you remember what it is, what it does, and how to use it? B)

I probably made them. So, they may have found their way back to my collection.

Yup, a Case! Never could get them to tie the bales right. Half of the ties were loose and it was always jamming up. At least you traded up to a JD.

I wonder if Case and IHC shared the same knotters?  We had an IHC 45 baler.  My job as a pre-teen was to ride on the twine box and check each knot and retie those that failed.  Riding right there in a cloud of dust for several years during the summer, it is a wonder that I can breathe today!  We traded up for New Holland balers, cheaper than JD and with local parts/service.

Our old Case was wire tie; when it didn't break the wire, it made one heck-a-va bale which always seemed to be the problem. Didn't seem to make much difference where you had the tensioner set, bales came out the same.

I worked on a few of the old 45's...if you literal replaced everything in the knotter they seemed to work good until parts starting wearing then shear pins would break so guys would replace with harder bolts, then needles got bent and well you know the rest. New Holland did make pretty good balers too...never was around them much, but had customers who used them and liked them. Around here back then, there wasn't a strong dealer presence or I suspect there would have been many more in use.

 

J.D.'d old 24T was probably one of the most forgiving and reliable balers ever made. Easy to work on and even nearly worn out would produce decent bales. The last that I worked on was their 336T model. Pricey, but the an awesome piece of equipment.

Funny how a sound subject goes to the farm..

Wiring Alexa to your stereo system is spectacular..  For under 5 bucks..  No one cares..

It's talking in circles Larry.  Eventually we will come back to the original topic...

See, we just did!

And I agree, Alexa to the sound bar would be great - if I had Alexa...

It's not that we don't care, Larry. Some of us troglodytes don't know Alexia. Heck, I just got my record player to work in the shop.:lol:

That reminds me. I have to get my 8 track fixed so I can put that in the garage.:D

I don't think I could trust Alexia? :huh:Sounds like she would be the parrot in the cage  that would tell all of your secrets to everyone? :o

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
