Hehe... I knew those weren't regulator valves - they don't look like that. Hopefully they'll find a use some day if they still work.

Don't be too anxious to get rid of 450V caps.
You never know...you might need them...

I found some nice 7500 uF 450 VDC caps recently, was not sure if I should pick them up. After all what suicidal maniac would build an amplifier with +/- rails over 400 VDC!!!

Although there are a number of interesting things that can be done with bipolar rails and tubes, most circuits only require one rail. What I have planned for the front end will probably utilize a 300V rail (not counting the filament supply). Given that a voltage doubler gives somewhat more than that, I intend to do a CRC type filter to get down to the target range.
I actually managed to steal a few minutes this afternoon. Started pulling parts. Got some isolation transformers I bought when my favorite local parts shop went under last year. Looks as though the secondary is wound a bit hot--gives 135V out for about 122V in, but I anticipate that it will drop a bit when it's under load. No problem either way. Resistors are cheap and readily available.

My sympathies. I gave up my 911, but I suppose I could always
have that mid-life crisis and get the Lola....

I thought you had to be in your forties to have a mid-life crisis? Don't you have Grand Kids?

Default Midlife crisis.

Nelson: I did not know you had a police car Certainly someone would be willing to trade a Carrera or Viper for some audio gear!

Casey: after 15 years of driving suburban assault vehicles (mini-vans), I am digging my toy out of the garage. Working on fuel injection for my 72 454 Vette! Also installing a four speed automatic in place of the Turbo 400. It probably won't keep up with the new stuff but I hope to better the 10-12 MPG it was getting as well as be able to run pump gas without all the additives. I am going to try the EFI on my Honda V-65. Want to get it up to around 160 H.P. Love to put the young studs on crotch rockets in thier place! An old fool on an old bike just kicked your A**.

When I stop enjoying speed and looking at attractive women, you might as well nail the lid on the coffin!

Are you sure that thing will have enough torque to drag the behemouths out there?
