Question leak st 20

Hi all, just aquired one of these privately, which has been restored by classique sounds, Id like to ask if these are happy to be run with an unventilated cover on base or would they be better with a ventilated base?
Just that I got some kids in house and don't want them sticking there pinkys anywhere where they shoudn't!!!
Also what should the tranny voltages be as in cardiff mains is around 240v and these are set at 220/230?

There will be very little through ventilation due to the lack of holes in the top plate so it won't make a huge amount of difference. However its just as easy to make a bottom cover out of punched metal sheet which will preserve the ventilation that there is.

As to mains - when I had one we tended to have high mains voltage at night and it never caused an issue for me. However there should be an adjustment plug on the mains transformer which can be set for an input voltage of 245VAC if you are concerned.
