Wonder if one of those hoarders has a piece of that same colour levant (black on green) to spare? I have picked up a similar era (late 65?) JTM45 (pics to follow) that is without its rear panel :mrgreen:
Weirdly I have a 100w spare rear exactly the right colour :roll:

Maybe win the auction or contact the winner of the auction, he might wants to change the grill cloth anyway...


Thanks for the heads up Kuli, much apreciated.

I like it. How do you fight the New World Order, why move out to Montana and be a New World Hoarder.

I expect Abbeystudios can fix you up ok, mind you it will likely be 25 x two inch squares at $500 a pop. :lol:

I think they are actually referred to as "survivalists" (may not be how they refer to themselves), but I suppose "New World Hoarder" sort of fits their outlook. I should trademark it, and sell them T-shirts! :lol: 8)

+1000. If this turns out the way I hope it will, I will be a very happy camper. I could be pompus and say 'All things come to he who waits' but the reality is I'm a lazy $%^& who keeps not getting round to it.

I did size up a bit of NOS RS cloth that I have in the vaults, but didn't have the heart to start cutting when ultimately, though period correct, it would be the wrong stuff,

Thanks for the heads up :cheers:

Looks like I need to contact Mr Collins then start nagging Mr Wallace for a selector OPT.

Just about to drop the $$$ for the one I ordered as he e-mailed me to say they are in (thanks to having an original to teardown courtesy of another 'special alloy' forum member!) No selectors come with it with it but I succumbed and bought a single 4/8/16 black paxolin one from the French guy on ebay. Nice piece that will match the other one on the dual OT amp.

Oh, so things have moved on ? So at the risk of being told to do my own research, what is the deal - Brian does the tranny, then the customer buys and installs the selector? Any ideas on prices ? and could you share the link to the French selector guy, as I've not got it ?

Thanks!

The OT is a special order so $150 plus shipping (plus VAT and customs etc :roll: ).

The selectors are here:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/330938882906?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_315wt_962

I e-mailed and he listed just one on French ebay as a BIN. They are not cheap but impossible to find NOS or even used without an amp attached to them. He says they are expensive to make and I believe him now I have one in my possession.
The message on Brian's site says they ar eonly shipping trannies with Hammerite covers which is a shame but I have a spare pair of old end bells with patina but without numbers stamped on so I will sacrifice one of those to install the selctor. I have a greenlee punch the correct size which is very handy :D

Well doesn't time fly..

Anyway, the head box has moved on, a bit. The paint removal project was an utter bit$h, far too east to take the green tint off as well. Some of the paint was dried out and pickable, other was gooey and rubber, total nightmare, So I did what I could and called a halt.

On the upside the vents from North Coast are absolutely perfect, and really set it off.

Next will be some grill cloth. How do I contact Mr Collins?

More, more!

Where is the amp and OT - is it working yet?

Are you getting Park EC cloth?

Wonder what else he is doing?

Wotcha Neil,

Not much more progress elsewhere yet, but soon hopefully! I thought I'd better get a pic or two up to motivate myself..

I have got a 3 position selector, but it was a random ebay spot and I need to check it's the right size to go on the OPT you got me..Then summer holidays allowing I'll be begging a go with your greenlee cutter...

Chassis needs a bit of a clean, an some new Electrolytics. I'd really like to get something period correct but what are the chances...may end up with F&T's or something. Then some OP tubes, I was wondering about Shuguang KT66's are they still well regarded?

Yes I need contact details to get the Park cloth that apparently Mr Collins does, - anyone know?
