Nah, part of the motivation of this is to purge a lot of the electronics shit I know I'll never use, break down a bunch of appliances etc. I have into parts and actually put some solder to stuff.Do you have any use for ESD mats? We're going to be changing out some here at my work and if you don't mind older ones that are a little beat up or might need to be cut down to fit you would be more than welcome to them?
Have been goofing around making (some) progress. I ended up wiring this project twice after spending a few hours troubleshooting to figure out I had the damn socket wired backwards; ICs are certainly easier, you just rotate it 180 and keep plodding along.
I used the 0D3 voltage regulation tube, but substituted a 6LU8 Compactron tube in for the triode/pentode just because it's self contained. Still doing some research and trying to determine if I want to go to beefier tubes.
Bit windy of a video, skip to 4:40 or so to see it powered up and operational.
