Phil, have you been along to this place?

No Ray, I had not been aware of it.

Model railways really don't do it for me, I prefer the real thing.

Nice work Ray ! - work the system :D Glad to see it has gears. Saw some young fella riding up Vale Street ( to Denbigh town centre ) today on Fixed - looked like he was pulling the stem out of the frame !
There's always one. :wink: :lol:

Re: Nothing In Particular

Well done Chris, I liked that - a lot. :D

Having heard some quality brass bands live over the last few years (all Yorkshire based) I thought it was an excellent performance.

Re: Dual rail +/- 80v power supply.

I'm back on the case with this 811a in A2.

I sat looking at my previous efforts to make this +/- 80v power supply, but re-reading this topic has put me back on track. :)

Nice Dave, do yourself a favour and knock up a set of legs for them.

14" is a nice height. (well it is for me)

I will have them if someone else has not got their first, but collection may be a issue.
I still have the boxes that Richard used to pack them in Nick, and I should be up in West Yorkshire for a couple of days over the Christmas hols, so if you are about I could drop them off.

Re: Quad ELS 57s for Sale

Re the ESL57 electrostatic loudspeakers. As good as they are, the logistics of a pair (the ESL57) and a 55" television just don't work in my living room, so I've made the difficult decision to move them on. :( They cost me £280 from Richard in March 2018, and I would let them go on here for the same...

I strongly suspect, that the excellent performance of this OTL in my system may be down to the flat impedance curve of the Fane 12-250-TC driver. It is a very easy load.
Is the 15" version (that Ant uses) as easy a load ?

Re: Remember These?

Ah, these are 2.4R Welwyn 5%, but they only look like 1/2w or possibly 1w.

I've got several hundred of the perishers.

Re: Remember These?

What wattage 2.4R resistors are you using Steve ?

I should have a bag of 2.4R which were ex MOD from Chatham Dockyard, some were close tolerance.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Been trying to find trimmer capacitors, like we used to be able to get. Go to the usual suppliers, hopeless. Yes lots of SMD but not suitable for what I want. Go on eBay, bosh bosh, all done, less than 2 minutes. Most of that was saving to favourites and waiting for the next pages to load. I often ...

Re: Remember These?

Somewhere I have got some (at least 4) 2.5R (from memory) potentiometers. Don't know the wattage but they must be about 1.75" diameter. If they might be of interest I'll try and find the buggers and confirm the details. I'll donate them to the project. :) PS it would look better with a coat of white...
