Bloodi El Govn'er...4'got the Cockney accent!

Everyones from London!!! I've only seen one normal Northerner (P.S. Manchester isn't Northern - Although N. Yorks is )

Just joking...Really, the UK is very well represented here.
For any unexposed USAians - The Cockney accent is one of Englands best kept secrets (for good reason ) - Although the best has to be scottish or irish...Worst? Sorry wales or liverpool (scouse) or Birmingham (Brummies?)

(A very sorry) Gaz

P.S. I couldn't resist.

Strangely enough, think of a film with Michael Caine, Zulus, and loads of singing Welshmen! (Men of Harlech, if I remember correctly!)

But how about the wellies with the pockets on the front!

I'd never heard of those b4 - but it does sound like a welsh invention. It's like boots on boots...

Anyway - We've gone slightly off topic and the Internationals seem to be a bit scared off!

Thankyou for that horrible reminder

Anyway - after playing with these heatsinks and an A4 sized piece of aluminium last night, I have decided the best route. The holes in the center of the heatsink are 8cm up. The bottom corner ones are 1.5cm up. If I bend the A4 sized alum 7.5cm from the end and bolt it to the four holes (2 centre ones and 2 corner ones) then the xformer will slot in nicely - as will the caps and rectifiers (somewhere???). I will use threaded rods connected to the alum sheet to hold the amp above the xformer.

Edit:
My Text pic didn't work! ;(

Does that make /any/ sense? The Ts are the Transformer. R are the Rectifiers and the caps are behind. C is the circuit...

Really should do a render!!!

Gaz

Hi Rarkov,

What you may use is called "Spiral Flute Tap" it is Japanese inovation. It will do the job for your heat sinks! It does the tapping almost to the end of the hole. Take a look at this:
