Fitted a 7V nuvotem tx for display, used a 10ohm res to get my 3.6v for the tube heaters.

Its running at 220mA and the resistor and tx is running very cool.

It's nice to see you have put tube heaters in your player brent, just to keep the baby 63 nice and warm. Awwww

I'm sitting on campus at the moment, and have found a skip outside civil engineering with a large quantity of aluminium plates about 2mm thick. Each one is about 500x100mm. I'm going for a raid when im done in the lab and will bolt these onto the bottom of the chasis for some extra weight. BOSCH !!!!!

Well in my rush and sillyness, i didn't really analyze the sheet properly. It certainly wasnt Al as it was far too shiny and HEAVY. It's stainless steel, and i tried to carry 7 sheets of it home from campus

I had to switch carrying hands every 20m or so, and i think carrying them home has lengthened my arms by a good foot

I'm still going to get even more today!

Well it's good to see that my materials engineering studies are going somewhere

With bonding it to the underside of the chassis il might try some araldite, as that stuff is godly, but acquiring a large amount might not be cheap, and i can't remember how quickly it will harden, so getting the plate on quick enough my be a problem.

Hi
Try 'No More Nails' - it will bond the steel to steel and is also slightly flexible - cheaper too.

question
When you replaced flat cable with coax

did you use coax into a plug or solder onto pcb?

if plug what connector do you suggest?

allan
