What a productive day, I got so much done. This morning I went to Home Depot and got hardware for mounting the power socket, tubes etc...Then I went to Canadian Tire and got some new tips for my soldering iron, some 60/40 Kester solder, some green neon spray paint for a custom Tube Screamer and a big ol storage box. Hope fully it can keep my bench a bit neater...
The sweet organizer box...Ya I got a lot of room in there for stuff. Only $14 what a deal!
The safety resistor....those filter caps can kill. (1M 5W)
Did some work on the chassis....Got the pots wired up partly. I also got the input jacks fully wired. They were a pain to wire vertically like that. Also the shielded wire was a pain, oh well its over. I also did some work on the power socket. The input power is called B+ right? I used 22 guage solid wire for the input power is this enough?
Here you can see the front of the chassis where the main controls are. You can clearly see here how I added a mid pot. Originally the pot furthest on the left was a input jack. I used this hole for an extra pot. I relocated the other jack below the original jack. High and low inputs makes sense.
Got the eyelet all wired up...Twas really fun. I think its pretty clean. Yes...no?
So basically that's all I can do for now. I just ordered some resistors and wire that I needed. Oh and some power tube sockets. The ones I originally bought were a bit small and I didn't really like them. Once I get one or two more resistors on the eyelet I can solder the "flapping" wires to their respectable pots/tubes. Then I need to save up for tubes and transformers...In conclusion building amps is MAD fun!!
Right now...with out tubes, transformers and a head cab around $250.
Probbly when it is all said and done $400 - $500.
Sorry Hank just one...
Also with the fuse holder...does it matter which side I connect to the power socket. There are two leads I don't belive so but I just wanna be sure.
