Nice suggestions.
Can you explain the implementation on the 5A switches?

NoSmoking,
If that is the folded, you are going to like it very much. Be forewarned, it is good enough that it dissapears and is largely defined by the cap at the output. Rush coupled the secondstage to a DCB1, dropping the buffer, and was able to use high quality .1uf cap vs 2+uF recommended for the standard layout. Luckily i was feeding high Zin tube and was able to use a SIO. I wi ll be trying K75 bypassed by teflon next.

Push button round would be nice. I have been looking at Digikey but not really found anything.
Folks:

I was wondering about finding large (25mm) illuminated anti-vandal switches myself; I have a preference for blue ring variants and found the following: http://www.langir.com/46FC2DAD-28AF-...ant-switch.pdf

These are rated at 250VAC/5A, which I assume would be suitable for an F5T V2 (120VAC and presumably less than 10A). My attempts at locating a commercial retailer of these switches was unsuccessful, but Langir apparently offers them directly at volumes of at least 20 units. Is there enough interest to justify a group buy?

Regards,
Scott

The extra heatsinks arrived today...( see pictures) pfff.. that's a whole new ballgame...
Construction of the case and lay-out inside the case must be reconsidered with this much of height...
And that for "only" 50 Watts of class A into 4 Ohms
