I believe the Triode/UL switch will go in the space between the OPT's near the PCB Edge.
The choke is not shown since it will be banished to the underside of the amp.

I will probably use some lacquer thinner and remove some of the coating from the PT since it seems to be dripping all over the place.

Default Extreme Makeover Triad Choke Edition

Well, I decided I didn't want a 3" tall chassis so I built some "end caps" for my C-14X.
They are built with the same Hickory that the chassis will be made of so I think it will look nice up top.
I don't know if I will paint the frame black or just leave it to match the top cover and the MR Cap.

If I could find a reasonable source for 5/4 Hickory I would build some endcaps for my PT and OPT's too.

This looks like it's going to be good! I'm looking forward to your thoughts on sound.

I finished a Simple SE recently and, contrary to what some might expect, the fact that my SET came out wonderfully makes me want to build something else, not stop building and be satisfied. Some kind of sickness. The Simple PP is on my short list of imminent obsession.

Default Chassis In Progress

Here is my raw chassis and a mock up with my stuff on it to mark the holes.
Tomorrow I will bring the top plate in to work and have my welder poke a bunch of holes in it.
I will spend a bunch of time on this thing over the weekend and I hope to be listening to it Sunday evening.

This will be my third amplifier.....
#1 AudioSector LM4780 Dual Mono
#2 Pass DIY F4 w/ Broskie Aikido Preamp
#3 Tubelab Simple P-P
#4 ?????? Maybe a 100W/ch F5T Who Knows

Default More Progress

I have the top plate all drilled out.
My welder at work was kind enough to punch the big holes for me, it took him like 10min.
I will hopefully have the chassis drilled and glued up tonight.

The choke has it's endcaps in place and it looks mighty fine.

Default Chassis Splined Up

I built a spline jig really quick and put 3 splines of contrasting color in each corner.
They are made from soft maple and will add strength and decoration.

Default Chassis Finished

The final coat of oil just went on.
I will make final modifications to the PCB after dinner and start assembling this thing.
I really want to be listening to it tomorrow and I think I'm on track.....barring any oopses.
