Kofi,
Once you can see clear again, just pull the enbells off carefully and retireve the wayward clipping. Then do with it what you want.

Just wanted to bounce this one up to the top and see how it all came together; any more pictures to show off?

OK-- here's an update. I was so emotionally damaged from the piece of wire that wound up in the tranny that I put the project down for a while, then got snowed under with work.

I did take the bell ends off, but I never found the bit of wire. Unless it's seriously jammed in there, I think it must have bounced back out when I was fiddling with it.

Anyway, the tranny is back together and I mounted the rest of the components. Thanks to the reminder post from bigjppop, I'll resume the project today.

Pictures to follow.

Kofi

Standard Kofi wiring technique, here. Admonish with avant-garde haiku, as below (5-7-5):

I've always liked the JJ tubes, but I'm not really an expert. I've never had one fail and I think they sound great. Price is right as well...

So, I hooked up the amp last weekend and I was popping fuses all over the place. I noticed that I had some reverse continuity in one of the PSU diodes, so I rebuilt the supply with new diodes. Upon starting up this morning, I saw the B+ rise to about 390VDC and then the 1A fuse popped. I tried a 2A just to see if the inrush was killing it, but it popped right away without the B+ rise the second time.

I think I'll disconnect the supply and test it standalone. Any ideas on a resistor value that would be good for testing the supply? Any ideas on what may be causing this?

Kofi
