    No, it should be exactly the same. You have a linear pot with the wiper tied to the end, 100k across it now it's a 50k linear.

    From looking at the pictures, it looks like a pretty decent homemade build. I would say well worth getting it running, i doubt very much it needs a power transformer, you just need the right tubes in...

    Put a pair of el34s in there and see what voltages you end up with. Other than that, the power transformer/transformers may be worth more to someone looking to restore the Heathkit W5m

    Think it was 2 transistors for a basic wah. I would buy or make the PCB or perf, reuse the inductor if it's 500mh and the pot, junk the rest.

    How about a VR tube? Only a couple ma right? You can stack them to get higher voltages. Other than that, I think you would need higher henries than 5H.

    Find any HP or Tektronix piece of test equipment (50's on up) that has dual voltage tranny. Wire it up like that, they often use a slide switch.

    Do you have a watt meter? Measure at idle. Measure at signal. Draw will go up with signal if a PP design. If wattage stays the same, there is no possible way anything is running hotter.
