    Thanks, @Bill Moore , I saw that too. The power cutout where the fuse should be means it's the Mojo. Admittedly the $175 price includes faceplates, but if you wanted a Mojo-style chassis you could get the zachmdhunter for $50.

    If you could find this one for sale anywhere - I can't - it would get you closer with the Deluxe size and 305v secondaries option.

    This is a pretty interesting PT though. Sized for a Fender Deluxe w/230mA rating, 355v/305v options, bias tap - looks like it would be perfect for 6L6 Deluxe projects. But, I can't find it available online anywhere.

    I believe the FDP-20M is 294 v. I will double check

    Full disclosure: I have accumulated a **** ton of Mercury transformers over a 10 year period by waiting patiently and striking when the prices fell to bargain levels. I'm about ready to weaponize them.

    Late addition: I've read Doug Hoffman's amp pages pretty thoroughly, and I recall he describes this method for fitting a PT in an oversized hole, using fender (not Fender!) washers. But I see now he has a picture of it on EL34. So if you end up wanting to use the Mojo chassis or the zachmdhunter repro, this might help you fit a 'correct' PT.

    I've never used a brass plate, just a buss wire on the pots, Hoffman style. I haven't had any problems with a Switchcraft 12A, a zinc plated 3/8" internal tooth washer, a 16 gauge chassis, and a roughly 16 gauge faceplate. I always leave out the little flat washer.
