Yeah those caps are glued to the plate. It is a nice way to keep them in one spot.

Oh yeah and it is a ratshack pot. You can smell them a miles away, huh? haha Can't beat them for 1.99.

It is going to be a headphone amp, with a preamp switch. Should work out good. And the 6as7g is a triode to boot.

Just a word of caution...some glues tend to bite their way through plastic insulation materials.

A safer way is to use clamps, unless you enjoy a big bang...

Cheers,
