Found in neighbors trash. In very bad shape. Couldn't identify mfg. Tube complement: 12AX7,7591,6AV6. Mullard filter cap code indicates 1964-1966. Has 2 inputs and a 3rd jack for a tremolo foot switch. Has a tremolo pot with on/off. Two diodes were used to rectify mains. Want to add reverb and change solid state diodes to a full wave tube. Maybe add a second 12AX7 and a fused power light.

I made an audio attenuator box which is used during the I.F. alignment of antique AM tube radios called All American 5 and All American 6s So as to not have to listen the the audio alignment tone typically 1000hz during the alignment procedure you connect the output audio stage of the radio to my box, chose the appropriate attenuation matching resistor then connect your analog VOM or VTVM to the terminals and proceed with tweaking the I.F. transformers for maximum readings. Attached is a picture of the box using mostly materials obtained from AES.

National 183D
Picked up a National 183D recently. Fairly nice shape. I originally bought it for the look but the more I read about it the more I want to get it working. So hence why I am here. Starting off it seems the transformer had a dead section. Heater on the 5U4 rectifier doesn't get voltage needed.

Mod Kits Parts for adding an LED and DC Jack
Here are all of the parts needed to add an LED and DC jack MOD Kit. Make sure you have a drill and some extra wire! Be sure to measure your holes before drilling. Depending on what pedal you are modding, you may need to place the LED or DC jack in different positions. The LED and DC jack can also be installed independently if you only want one or the other.

Black Face" Barn Find"
Well, it wasn't really a barn but it damn sure was a '64 Champ with a console stereo speaker, a smoked RCA 12ax7, a cheap power chord with the "clip-on" plug, rusted chrome straps, handle brackets, etc...and, covered in dirt/mud, bug/rodent feces. Took her home, sprayed it down with the hose (not really), changed the cord, bought a Warehouse G8C. Now, for hardware and caps. Hopefully, the pots, jack, probably need a light bulb (LED), will pass muster. Wish me luck
