Default Heatsinking the Lovoltech JFET

OK guys, i'd like to see some pictures of how you're doing this!


seeing as i'm going to be wiring my Zen 8 circuit point to point, i really
need the JFET to be secure.

Oh, man...so that's why I've got so many 'whatevers' sitting here! I forgot to send the silly things out with the JFETs.
Now, that's a big OOPS...

Gee . . .
As I do not know what is whatever,
I use the juice maker . . .
But, stop the pressing just before you see the black juice . . .

I'm seriously thinking about using this:

Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive

Even if you decided to use the heatsink for a different amp, the part
is so small - you could easily work around it.

...just an idea

Choky's solution is real good IMHO. The most common way I have seen a single device mounted in an industrial/heavy commercial app is as follows. The gray bar being a bent piece of heavy guage steel.

In principle, you can solder the tab to a piece of copper. This is fine for assembly, but a nightmare for troubleshooting/service. You can also overheat the device and cause premature failure.
I prefer a mechanical system.
