There may be many reasons as to why peppe sez he doesn’t have the means. I suggest we help him if he wants it real bad. You can ship that drek to me, or even better, to OPLDF. I hear he is two weeks on without constructing a new amp. Idle hands is never goodHave you tried building anything smd? If you have a magnifier and a fine soldering bit it's really not a problem. Just practice and find what works for you. I do the blob one pad - hold the part with tweezers - melt the blob - slide into place - solder the other pad method. I built a D3 no issues. Have a go!
