Default This looks entertaining!

I've been having a lurk around and decided to dive in. Mostly I like to play with ham radio (KL5A) and have a couple old Heathkits waiting for some restoration, but now that I have a grandson who is tech oriented I thought it might be fun to build some DIY electronics and see if I can get that squiirel running in his head. Right now I'm thinking I'd like to find a simple hollow state amp suitable for breadboarding that was can build together, like the ones I dabbled in as a young teen and mostly didn't electrocute myself with.
Cheers from NoMi!

point to point. I'd like to show him the flow though the circuit and besides breadboard tube stuff looks cool.
I've heard you can do circuit boards on a cricket but approval of SWMBO might be problematic.

I do have a collection of mystery tubes and some hollow state donor radios, people tend to kick them to the curb in our area. Picked up a nice Philco console and a record player not to long ago.
