This is a big update, been putting off posting this because it's a pain on from my phone, this is 2 updates in one really.
Sending this from my phone because all the photos in this update where taken from my GS4. Expect inconsistent lighting, shakiness, and maybe blurring.
Riveting down the 5 valve bases that I painstakingly cleaned up from the second donor radio.
Let's get the valves in! So here we have two ECC83s, two EL84s and one EZ81
They look a little dirty, especially the rectifier valve (EZ81)
Now they're shining!
Wired up the heaters for the valves, power switch, and power light bulb
Heaters all working fine, nice orange glow from the valves!
Shot of the Mullard EL84, glowing brightly.
Foreground, ECC83, my GS4 macro working overtime.
Power indicator looking nice!
Today's work, fitting the remaining switches, jacks and potentiometers.
Fitted two toggle switches to control which inputs and outputs are used.
3.5mm input jack on the rear fitted
Two more potentiometers fitted here for volume control. Originally I intend to have balance and control but there wasn't a potentiometer rated right for the balance control so I am going with a volume for each amp, left and right. A little more fiddly I guess but oh well.
Also fitted the 3.5mm output jack headphones.
Close up of the power light, switch and output jack.
That's your lot for now folks, tonight I hope to get a lot of wiring up done
