Down to work to plan for a soft restart, probably weekend takeaways. The lads, much like myself, are all reaching the "crawling the walls" stage. Sad to say it out loud, but it'll almost be nice to be working a little bit again, might help me refocus the rest of my time, as I've got a bit lax and scattered this last while. Had a new niece born yesterday who I'll not get to see for a while, which is sightly saddening.
Managed to get the rectifier and power supply end of the amp all soldered up nicely, real tidy lead dressing that's neatly pressed up tight to the chassis, might even hot-glue it in spots for sanity's sake. Hope to get the input/output sockets wired tonight or early tomorrow, then the other five valves, then the pots. Could be slow going after that because I'm a few components short for the modifications I'm making, plus I need to figure out where/how to mount the additional controls that'll be safe, electrically quiet and reasonably accessible.
Hopefully, going back to work might mean I can afford some valves and speakers for the thing.
