Re: Entropy

well its not the heaters, not the thermal trip, not the thermostat. So next step it to turn it on its back and check the wiring back from the motor.

Re: Entropy

Checking conversion again closer to $190. Electric dryers are cheap here. you can pay a fortune for a phone controlled Internet of crap one, but I want a basic vented model.

Re: Entropy

Tumble drier has bust again. There was a trip of the power yesterday after which it stopped heating... Hmm Probably $50 in bits for thermostat and new heater etc or $150 for a brand new unit. I may give in.

Re: Phono Transfer System Construction Information

Wife away with kids for a couple of days so time to crack on. And first dumb question. How did you intend the shield drive to be setup for remote switching of gain? I'll just be switching between A&B on the first build.

Re: Flat Balanced Input Moving Coil Phono Preamp Construction Information

It would appear there is no demand for M7 Al acorn nuts in UK M6 and M8 are available in a variety of gaudy colours for people who like that sort of thing. I'll take a risk on the M6 and drill out the thread. Cheap enough if I get it wrong...
