I just purchased a late 60s tube am radio it is an h200t5 from Westinghouse that i would like to make an amp from. I have not been able to get any help online. I only have a limited knowledge of electronics so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
That sounds like something I could really get into! I have a pretty long list of other projects I really want to complete before I start on building mics but I would welcome any recommendations for a first project when I get ready.
howdy david,just popped in to answer yer question about whats behind the soundholes inside the box of the lil white hog posted in the rat rod group.only thing there is air then past the air is a masonite back.the only part of this build that is cigar box is the top--all the rest is various articles i accumulated to make it all work together. thanks for the question.
Hey man, been lax, busy scraping by, and distracted in general -- easieer to pick up a guita and play rahter than buckle down to finish the CBGs -- the whole living room is filled with half built stuff and tools and scraps...probably gonna finish a big build I have going for a friend (an avid cigar smoker who wants to gift a custom CBG to the president of La Flor Domingo with whom he's friends) -- but that's a real electric 6-stringer, so need to get a center block milled, glued, routed for neck pocket etc..I need to farm that out...I don't have a pro planer or any router...but will get my two CBGs done soonish...they're so close, just need wiring and hardware customized...then a quick stain etc...I hope you're well. Thanks for teh note. Will keep in touch. ET
