Yes the XPR131 was spec'd by member Rknise.....for the TSE....and it's handy if at some point you want to run 300B's. I soldered the unused leads to unused solder tags for safety.

I ordered the opt's from Electraprint and xpwr131 from Edcor... I offer another thank you to RKnise for arranging that with Edcor.

My board has all components on the bottom side, with just the tube socket and potentiometers on the top. I'm mounting the board under plexiglass, with tube socket and potentiometer hole in the plexiglass. What I need to know is where would I add holes for multimeter grabbers to check for drivers and 300Bs, also B+ and B-. Are the directions in post 542, the best locations? I'm planning on soldering small loops of spare wire to the testing locations, so the grabbers will have something to hook onto. The board will hang a 1/2 inch below the plexiglass and the plexiglass 1/4 inch above the top plate. I figure this might give me some air flow around the board and plexiglass.

I've been designing my front panel using the front panel express software (thanks so much for the starting point itsikhefez!). For measurements, I placed the TSE-II PDF from the front of this thread on the front panel in the software, and then layed out the drill holes I wanted on top of it visually. I printed out a copy and it looks pretty good.

I wanted a sanity check on this method in case there's discrepancies in the PDF and the actual board, or the way graphics are displayed etc. . .So far, it seems more accurate then trying to measure with those electronic callipers.

You'll have to adjust the holes for the transformers, and the PCB standoffs if you dont want to use the ones I did.
This one also has holes for mounting the 4-pin tube sockets to the chassis.
Thanks!

That's basically how I did the layout for the tube sockets, standoffs and bias adjustment holes. One sanity check I did was to use the Ruler tool in FPD and ensure the board image size was the same as the physical PCB, 8.5x5.5.

For those of you mounting your motor run caps on the top plate -- are you finding nice covers? Or are you panting / polishing the cap itself and I'm seeing the external surface of the cap? In either case, what do I need to search for on mouser for mounting parts?



Thanks!
