This has been an exciting, and fascinating, hobby for me for many years now. I have enjoyed almost every minute of it. (some projects did not turn out so well)

Time for me to move on. DIY projects are not great money makers, and I just hope to move these on to people who would enjoy the gear, not to fund my retirement. Our next downsize will be a move across the country to be near our daughter, whose first baby is due this fall. I hope to retire next year, depending on several factors. So, limited tubes, and compact system.

Shipping amps like that ought to be about 120 bucks each... Coast to Coast.

Although DIY may seem like a money losing proposition in reality it isn't. You are getting very high quality sound at a steep discount ( Thanks NP, ZM, etc... ).

Congratulations on your grand-kid. Boy or Girl?

Thanks for the shipping estimate. Then add boxing, and padding. I dont imagine I can just put in some foam peanuts, and call it a day. But then, I realize that Mobile is the crossroads of the world.

I have 2 granddaughters by my son, but they live near the wife’s mother. Our daughter is expecting a girl also. My wife is intent on this one, and we are both about ready to retire. I’m hoping to have the finances set by the end of next year.

I shipped two mono blocks recently. Aleph 2 monoblocks in the 5u case. It took me about 3-4 hours to package them, get estimates and send them out. Each shipment was $180 insured.

I buy the garage door insulation kits which are around $20 each. That or 3/4" foam board.

The trick with shipping is to put a block of something between the transformer and the lid. The transformer has the potential to bend the plate with all of the holes in it.

Make sure you use a double corrugated box for your insurance. I think the Home Depot and Lowe's moving boxes in the heavy-duty versions are double-corrugated.
