Next I found 8x BD139-10
Original Motorola goldleg, about 30years old
But used, so I need to find whether they are ok too

Also some unused BC547B, with goldprint and looks like Motorole or AA(?), also equally old

Also a couple of BC560B, goldleg Motorola, but used and old

Are these gems, or should be thrown away
I think I rember someone mention That those old Motorola to be really special

Lots of resistors I have to measure

Am I getting into trouble
Just be honest Carlos, should I quit these parts

I also have this funny thing on my meter
Obviously fore testing something, NPN-PNP
But have no clew how it works
Is it of any use


Taj
Sounds good with your dad building violins

I have to be honest and say that have made one many years ago

And the one, not finished, that I showed to Carlos, I have been working on that for about 15years, or more
But it is an important part of me, and will always be

Im working on my house
Havent had a proper bathroom fore 5years, but close to get it done

After that I hope to get a dedicated room fore making some more violins, I wish
Actually I have all the needed wood fore a couple more
Nice old stored wood by now
Should manage to get them done before I get too old

That is too funny...

I still like the ones you posted first.
Yes indeed... personal taste is not a matter of discussion.

Default Oh...nice parts...those 2SC2922 and complementary are the best ones you can find


Also the other ones are nice parts.

Do not trow them out...or..trow them into my trash box.

heheheh.

regards,

Carlos

Is it of any use?

Yes, it's helpful to tell you approximately what the current gain (hFE) of the small transistors is at some current level, so you can approximately match them. There should be a hFE position on your meter's main function switch.

Best use is for the input pair transistors (aka: the differential amplifier or Long Tail Pair). Those two transistors do their job best if they are matched.

The meter is not the best way to match them, but it's better than nothing. And assembling a better matching circuit is a pain the butt.

Insert a transistor ( using correct E, C and B pins - DX amp uses PNP (polarity) for the input pair), and the meter will tell you the hFE reading. Pick two transistors that have the closest reading.

Note: the heat from your fingers will REALLY screw up the readings. so try to use needle-nose pliers or tweezers to insert the transistors. If you must touch them, wait a long time for the reading to "cool down".

That process is really educational to demonstrate how sensitive transistors are to small temperature changes.

I may just do that

Its a pain to measure all those hundreds of non assorted resistors, and only find a few right ones

Maybe I just give in and order the needed parts

Thanks Taj
I will try that
I also have a file saved somewhere with instructions fore matching

Man, my eyes hurt and head is spinning, time to rest

Hi Carlos

Finally my newly bought laser printer, HewlettPackard P5, old blackandwhite, got into use that makes sense
Actually I bought it mostly to make print of schematics, reading stuff etc

1. Any idea why the prints of boards ends up wrong size?
2. Also, is it common to mirror image bottom layer?

My Sankens seems to be shorted on all legs

3. If I buy new, is it ok to choose Sanken 2SC2922/2SA1216?

4. Could I use other drivers than TIP41/42, say TIP31C/32C?
5. Or maybe MJE340/350?

Default Yes, you can use those drivers.


no problems.

regards,

Carlos

Default The image you have posted show the copper lines


seen througth a transparent board.... alike a transparent glass board.... position is fine...indicated base colector and emitter.

regards,

Carlos

Thanks Carlos

The reason I show picture of bottom layer was to show how much size is off, when I print it

Says that board should be 98mm long, but my print is 160mm
How can I fix this
Or I will need to draw the hole layout by hand

Prices are high on components
Will try look at digikey

Got nice F5 boards today, but thats a project fore colder days, only collecting components now, some fore DX also, and other projects
