John, what would you think about the added capacitors (parallel to dividers), pl see image.

I am tempted to mention that they are in series with parasitic capacitances of MOSFETs, that means they are in signal path, and their DA will cause reverberation.

But they reduce the noise ....

The CTC Blowtorch was a commercial product, not a DIY project.
John Curl isn't build as to assist amateurs with DIY projects.
John isn't obliged to neither publish any schematic, nor to start a DIY project.
There is lot to be learned from John, even when he doesn't start a DIY project and John readily shares his knowledge, though not complete schematics of some of his designs.

Hi PMA
A thought;
Since C-6,5,4,1 etc are in series for noise common to both supplies, and individually on each so they form a capacitive Voltage divider also but with somewhat different ratio than the resistors. (Oscilloscope probes often use a Capacitive divider, two different capacitance's instead of two resistors).

If your inclined (or perhaps sitting in your chair haha), try removing C-6 and 5 (7, 8) and place them from ground to the supplies (ala bypass caps in digital, close, place them close to the R15,16 and c1,4 junction..
This leaves the gates referenced to ground (where the output is referenced) and the divider is now a low pass filter to that reference.
Best,
Tom

Without Gate stopper resistors, they are very likely to oscillate.

Does your simulation show it?
