    Well I couldn't wait. I decided to put the 470R 5W Xicon cathode resistor in. It measured at 464R. Now I'm getting about 320V on the...

    Thanks so much, @tubeswell! I wouldn't have had a clue about all this without you!

    I just fired it up, and it works! In the end, I decided to go with three zeners, the first being a 14V (5W) and the second and third...

    Just to be extra sure, I went back and installed the lug terminal strips with nylon bolts, standing the lugs up off the chassis with a...

    Here are some pictures. I haven't fired it up yet. You can see the red-and-yellow HT center tap coming into the first zener's anode side...

    Hi @tubeswell - I just finished doing it the way I laid it out. As long as I skip the grounded lug on the terminal strip, everything is...

  10. theprofessor attached a file to the thread New (and first) build: 5f2a Tweed Princeton.

  12. theprofessor liked boredguy6060's post in the thread NGD: 1991 Epiphone Orville PR775S.

    That guitar is a serious player. It was built to a very high standard and was never meant to be a bargain level guitar. I’ve seen a...

    It's late, so I thought I'd give this update. A coat of clear shellac to seal it before the Amber. It helps a lot to prevent dark spot...

  15. theprofessor replied to the thread Power Transformer for fender 5f2-a.
