  1. Soldering Question

    ----------------------------------------------------------------***********************************************************-Make sure you get Electrical solder, not plumbing type as the latter cases corrosion in time. A good 60/40 will work, even better with a 2% or 4% silver. Obviously solid silver is a no go. Takes way too much heat to melt, think brazing. Ever find a spool and it's not labeled.. a good test to find out what it is.. Leaded solder will leave a shiner joint than the lead free which is dullish looking. Remember to get your parts to fit together as good as possible before you solder. Solder is made to just fill in the gaps and not be treated like a glue, jb weld etc

    Just started to build new crossovers for my Cornscalas. Some parts just laid out on board for placement purposes. After much research.. I narrowed it down to these caps which have all been matched to values and pairs. The board is 9x16.. Caps are the size of grenades..

    Better news. Here's a good link to 7199's : click on read here link in article. https://www.tubedepot.com/t/tubes/preamp-tubes/7199 I think I've got about 4 NOS Telefunken 6U8A's and numerous RCA blacklates kickin around. For the money, around $100, the Peak LCR45 meter is decent enuff.

    hope it works out.. my rule of thumb is if it hums, usually cap related, if you hear crackling from your speakers, transistor related. I think you have those two main filter caps in middle of chassis under the cans. Sometimes they don't get replaced due to cost Original Mallory'? That Scott is a sharp unit. Good luck ! ron LCR meters are a good investment.
