Mea culpa, it slipped my mind that you're not a one-off builder.
Got them.... thank you so much.

Will use them in the new paradise

My pleasure.

Just keep in mind that it's always the circuit that primarily defines the sound quality, not a single component (type).
If it sounds good, praise the three musketeers, instead of licking capacitor leads.

Oops, did I mention that I acquired the very last of the PCB packages for the Locky curver tracer.
For which I already have a fancy all-aluminum housing, bought a bunch of them for €5 the piece (>100 new)
The Kleinschmidt 10A

Makes both you a happy camper, and me.

I know it will sound good.... it is the sum of the parts....

PS: I never lick the parts leads, I normally polish them

Now I do not understand spit and polish - definition of spit and polish by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Spit, lick, what is the difference?

Some do.

(PS: I own a Philips PM6507 curve tracer, with all accessories + SM. Does Bipolar/JFET/MOSFET, up to 20A Ic and Gozanga Vce. Once every couple of decades, universities have a clearance sale, bum students are the first in-line to profit. Plus an Hitachi digital storage scope with RS232 output & software. But it's always nice to keep up with the modern day and age. )

I mean I always clean the parts legs with abrasive so soldering is more effective.

As I said, go and get one

Alternatively, if still not convinced, bring a nice bottle, and you may try mine

For a couple of the parts, I've got the better versions (which no one else has )

Still, could be simpler than working on a submarine, or building cars, yachts, jet fighter sections, commercial airplane parts, repairing a b&w TV with tubes, or the high voltage section of a 42'' LCD. Me pathetic d-all-y.
(I do turn extremely agressive from programming, had to do DOS/Fortran/T-Pascal/Visual at university, smashed a lot of stuff in those days. A parttime job as a Unix system administrator was easier)

I quite liked Pascal....however hated Fortran....which they forced us to study in university for one class....and I haven't seen anything in Fortran since then!!!!!
