    I have a problem with those single cup coffee makers with all the trash they cause. A disposable container for every cup of coffee just seems wrong to me.

    I work out of my garage, and I am technically in a commercial zone. Best of both worlds.

    Blues Deluxe reissue odd issue

    Complaint is that it cuts out and comes back repeatedly. Sure enough, it works for about 1 minute, then abruptly cuts out for 1 minute, then comes back on, repeatedly. Tubes stay lit, confirmed it is...

    Not sure what you mean by electrical cleaner, but generally yes, use DeOxit on any pot, as well as plugs, jacks, and almost anything else that isn't a slider fader. Best to use something designed for...

    All I can see in that photo are those darned connecting wires between boards. They give me chills.

    Customer came for his amp this morning, but I can tell you the tubes are closely matched, sockets had all been re-soldered, and no control affected it. I didn't look into 60 vs. 120Hz, I suppose I...

    weird ARS capacitor

    I have a Blues Deluxe in that was absolutely hacked to death, burnt off pads everywhere. I got it operating, but it still has a slight buzz and 3 Vac on the B+. I am reluctant to pull the board much...

    The diodes were not replaced initially, they were removed and measured good and re-installed. The amp worked for 3 hours after that, and then 2 hours the next day, so I sent it home. It failed later....

    Finally got to replacing the four diodes D5 - 8, and it has been running for 30 minutes, so maybe that got it. I ran it for 3 hours and then 2 hours before it came back, so I'm not taking a victory...

    I removed FS4 to measure TX6 and TX7, and when I powered up something went Snap! Nothing touching the chassis, everything was the same as the last time it was powered up. I informed the customer of...

    OK, so measure in series with primary side, and secondary unloaded? As suggested in post #2?

    This was with only the DC rectifier winding disconnected, measuring current across the unloaded secondary. The other HT voltages are good, and the power tubes running on AC filaments light up when...

    "If the transformer is ok,"

    What is the concensus on that winding drawing 8 amps unloaded? Well it does for a few seconds, then the mains fuse blows.

    "Simplify, disconnect the transformer from the circuit an power it up while monitor draw. Could be a shorted winding."

    Good idea. It measures 8 amps ! That can't be good.

    Also I pulled TR7, and...

    Rats, this amp came back for the same problem except now it will light the two pre tubes when it is cold, but they die out after a few minutes. I found that once they die out they will come back on...

    It is not making any noise, so I guess I am leaving it out. It's pretty quiet actually.
