Oh so true. :)
Yes, I seem to remember you posting about your bike a while ago Phil. I think you might have even been up the road on it?
Once. :lol:

When I've recovered I might give it another go, about mid July. :wink:

Re: Warning LED when valve stops conducting - a little SS help needed

In my most humble opinion, getting the filament heating "right" is the key to directly heated valve performance.

To that end, each directly heated valve should have it's own separate filament supply.

Celestion B18-400

This might be a Steve S question. :wink:

I've seen some Celestion B18-400 speakers on the interweb.

All I can find out is they are 18", 400W, and 8 ohm. There seems to be no other information online.

Can anyone help with more info ?

Re: DIY grounding box.

I am agnostic about all this, but I do find it funny that the firsts post about making one is asking what goes into it. Aluminum powder and iron oxide may work well... Even those who have DIY'd them seem reluctant to divulge their secret recipe. :? A mix of several different types of crystal was wh...
