This morning, I read opinions about the 737 Max airplane. Nothing to do with DIY audio, but lots of opinions. I don't think Boeing will search this forum for info on their airplane.
Hey...

Duke, is it the schematic or pictures of the pcb, where you can see howto attach the testpoints / voltmeter's etc.. you want to see ???

I could help you i suppose

Jesper.

Any reason I can't ground a TSE-II like this?

Wiring Diagrams | Tubelab
Are you referring to the ground section in the middle of that page?
Looks like its basically what I did on my TSE.

I used a wire brush attached to a drill to scrap the paint off of my transformer feet to attach a ground wire to. I have a wooden chassis, so I had to wire up everything. If your transformers are mounted to metal, you still need to scrap off paint where the transformers mount. Paint is non conductive.

Make sense?

Randy

Yes, that's what I was looking for! Thanks all for your replies.

At the end of the day, I know that I can connect wires and see how it works.

This is a high voltage amp, potentially lethal, so handle with care.

As such, proper grounding is very important. Check your grounds with a meter, make sure everything that should be is really grounded.

I did just realize my inductor bodies are not grounded, but they are also buried inside my chassis so do not pose a safety issue.

One thing that is mentioned in the manual, and I remember from my first boss, is when you work on high voltage, keep one hand behind your back, or in your pocket, somewhere away from the amp.
You don't want high voltage to go through your body. If you only have one hand in the amp, there is no way for the voltage to get through it.

Hi here again.

I feel stupid that i asked if i could make my own pcb, without even thinking what the "consequences" could be. -I am really sorry for this.
George proberly used 100xhours designing this and selling it at a very nice price, just can't
being justified for me to just make my own sry.
I am embarrassed, but done is done.
I also wrote this to George via Email

I just ordred the PCB and all i can say is that i'am looking forward to buld this amp. this winther.

Jesper.

Hi all - I am looking to make some progress on my amp over the Thanksgiving weekend. I am building it in a 5U Pesante enclosure, how does this general arrangement of the major components on the base plate look?

Thanks!

There are a few ways but that arrangement is pretty popular. That's also how I did it.

The FPD is shared a few posts after if you're not drilling manually

If I were you, I would rotate all transformers 90 degrees so that OPT would face bell cover to bell cover.

Do you mind me asking what the price was on your chassis, with tube holes drilled?
