here's a picture showing the side of the chassis. I relly like this method of scratch building a chassis.

The top is 0.1" thick plate and the front is 1/8" bar. I build them to last and 0.1" is thick enough to tap threads into. The wood was scrap. The thing is, i've only got about $7 of material in it.

Really nice build.

Forgive my ignorance, do you just rub the crayon over the lettering the sand back?

that works but your fingers will get tired. i hit the back with a propane torch for about 5 seconds to heat it up a bit and the crayon goes on easily and rubs right off with a cotton rag. it also mkes the letters look better because the torch takes the porosity out of the crayon.

5 weeks after ordering the tube sockets on ebay and i get an email telling me they were returned to the vendor in china and can't be shipped for 3 weeks because they are on holiday there. I ordered them locally this time and hopefully I'll be building this amp early next week.

Looks like something that Tom Waits would use.

I like it.

Very gritty.

Due to a screw-up on my brother's part, wherein he measured a 12" speaker and reported it as a 10" speaker i now have a 10" enclosure to go with this amp. The new 10" driver arrives tomorrow. The transformers for the amp should ship this week.
