Oh my! Brads for solder-terms! For the crude stuff. I've done that, and
I've used carpet tacks as well.

I thought I was the only one who'd do such a thing!

Whew! I feel much better now!

For the 'fancy' ones...meant to not elicit a "pleagh" sound out of any
observers, I've used brass wood screws and washers...fahnstock clips*
and even plain steel screws...pan head sheet metal ones are best for
that...due to the head being wider-grips the wires better.

Well, I've come to a point here today, where I need decide....

Shall I change over to using a single 6AG7 tube/osc-output ...get 3/4 watt and so use a B+ for which I have xformers for....and can be fully self- contained ( B+ and RF guts in same chassie..or all one one wood base)

Or use 6SJ7 osc and 6V6 final, for 3 watts out... using B+ I will need get xformer for....needing 2nd chassie/or wood base item to hold B+ on. ---which will get a metal chassie ( I have) for the RF part. -- Randy KA1UNW If you get a shock while servicing your equipment, "Works for me!" randy@ DON'T JUMP! -Peter Keyes You might break an expensive tube!
