Default PSU Design Learning Links

Does anyone have good links for learning how to design a PSU for a tube amp? I am interested in both tube as well as solid state rectification. My particular needs are for something that will provide a B+ of about 120V and that can supply a current of 60mA, but I am interested in general links.

The power supply master "cheat sheet" from Hammond.

What sort of rectifier/filter will give what voltage and current etc.

Both web sites are of a more general nature, but they have areas within them which address tube PSU design and I've found them useful: check via Google both "Steve Bench", and "electronics 27". I tried to post the links for you but could not get them to work properly.
