    My first build was a AB763 Twin. I built the turret board, and picked the parts as I wanted, after all it was for me. I don't think anyone with some electronic knowledge will have any problem doing a...

    I think it looks great!
    I use the Weldwood and 3M spray, and here where it's dry, I still need 15 min. or more before it's tacky.
    I want to try the "string" in the groove on my next cabinet. I...

    I have a Proctor Silex timer assy from a long dead coffee pot, installed into a RS box with a short extension cord in, and out, starts the coffee whenever you tell it. When I do need to replace a...

    I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who refuses to throw an appliance away, if it can be repaired!

    Back in the day, building PA cabs, I wanted the look of a road case, but had no clue where to get the rivits. I ended up using carpet nails, (sort of a cross between a nail, and a screw). On those...

    I never have thought about using a sharpie, I have some white pencils that work well. (I have always used them when making gaskets that are difficult to buy!)

    Back in our R&R days, our lead guitar player always had a shot of schnapps on top of his amp. And then often friends from the audience would come on stage during the break, and "share" some coke,...

    Epi VJ Cab

    A while back I posted on a VJ that friend sent me with a Mercury Magnetics upgrade kit to install. It came out fine, but I needed to make a speaker cabinet for it. and I finally got it done. It took...

    glebert, I plan to try making a speaker cab with a Bandit cab I have. I haven't really measured yet, but I think I can peel the tolex back enough to cut the top down on a table saw. If I need to I'll...

    Well I built a 5E3 with a Tube Depot circuit board, and I too used a GZ34 tube rectifier. I had to play with the resistor value to get the cathode bias right. I added a switched "fixed" bias board,...

    I think that particular situation calls for a lot of patience.
    My shop is auto repair, and in the fine print of the estimate, that there is a lien on the vehicle, and after repairs are completed,...

    Thanks, the amp belonged to my nephew, (no longer with us), needed a cab, so thought I'd do something a little special with it. I gave it to my daughter for her "music room", and she started crying...

    My local Ace has washers/screws in both zinc, and stainless. Unless needing to be period correct they work fine. Andf I think look OK.

    I discovered 3M adhesive cleaner,(#051135-08984), when I worked for the power company, and had to remove the 3M door decals. I haven't used it to remove tolex adhesive yet, but it makes easy work of...

    How much could you gain by opening the hole in the tolex to allow the recess into the 2 overlapping pieces?

    I always drill the holes after I assemble the cab.
    With the chassis sitting where it should with the correct setback I mark the holes. I then drill a very small hole, (1/16" or so), through cab and...

    Tom, I just used the dimensions of the chassis, and left some room for the tank. I anticipated having to shield the PT side, but it wasn't necessary.
    I built a cab for a Special 130 a while back,...

    I just noticed this thread. I don't think there will be a problem, I built a head for a silverstripe Bandit, and had no problems with tank proximity.

    Years ago, I was tracing a current draw in a Cadillac, and had exhausted all my options dropping circuits one at a time. I asked my partner to tell me why I still had a draw, when everything was...

    Leo, she sings like a bird, and accompanies herself well on guitar. The little amp sounded pretty good with her Strat.

    One more update!
    I decided I needed a foot switch, but being too cheap to buy one, I made do with a single button Fender that has the LED. The switch toggles a transistor that does the actual...

    Since seeing another thread about these (cheesy) jacks I thought I would add that wiring is:
    Original Fender pin #
    1= shield, center/sleeve on Switchcraft,
    2=signal/tip
    5=shorting switch

    Nice!
    I guess if Fender sold one like yours, we wouldn't be talking about "fixing" them all the time.

    Blues Junior Input Jack Replacement

    I didn't find much info here, so I thought I'd post.
    I picked up a BJ a while back, and all I found wrong with it was a faulty input jack. I decided to install a Switchcraft. I took my step drill...

    I find drilling the mounting holes after the cab is completed works for me. One can adjust the setback, just move it into position, and punch a mark through the chassis. Remove the chassis, and drill...

    A guitar player friend bragged to me about one he had, back in the day, so when a chassis came up, (cheap), I bought it! I'll need to play through it a while, but so far I like it. I'm going to take...
