Damn nice work.

The shellac is usually used to insulate the windings of the transfomer, observe the brown stuff. It's also behind hte paper on the bigger transformer

Nice clean work.

Those stick-on wire ties with the little squares. Are you worried about the adhesive drying out? I have a whole bag and was thinking of doing the same thing but was afraid of that.

Thanks! It came up to my mind too, but we will have to wait and see. They have lasted inside my pc for over year now. Its very hard to get them off after once placed.

Don't think it has been used for a long long time. These days they use varnish.

Thanks, well I am using old russian tubes, so need to change to new ones. No problem with heat. No heat inside, and outside is ok. The paint still fits in place
Sound... not same as LM1875 It's different. Still working with fullrange speakers. To say the truth, no special parts inside, except ROE capacitors.

Now working with Zen Headphone Amplifier. Need chassis.
