Amplification (Pre/Power) / Re: Leak Stereo 20 Modifications

I have changed back to the Jupiters copper foil, i need to put in a lot of miles before i comment on them. Getting this cheaper leak to the same standard as the duelund leak is proving to be a challenge.
I have completely rebuilt this Leak in the last month i will post pictures soon. The bottom line seems to be, ONLY THE BEST WILL DO...........

Just taken this picture of the internals of the PX4 amplifier as you see mechanically its finished. But are they ever finished, as i type i will be trying a new main transformer, well not new, but very vintage.
i feel so honoured you are looking after my future amplifier (put that in your will  :-* :-* :-* :-*)

And so what is the case if you buy new current manufacture tubes?
Does this only apply to Ebay and their global shipping partner.
What a load of sh!t. They inject pregnant woman and babies with
flu shots and vaccines containing mercury and the poor old vacuum tube
is not safe...what about the power saving flouro light bulbs...are they made
in Australia, I doubt it.
  As far as i know the UX250 does not contain Mercury, radiation, atomic bombs, or any nude woman, These uninformed idiots. Why not ask an expert instead of a blanket ban. A few valves do contain mercury like an RCA 83 rectifier, they are used in Hickok Valve testers. Funny thing is i have brought plenty of these 83s through the shipping program and you know how many they have stopped..... well None. But they stop a harmless piece of history like a UX250 Globe, anyway its starting to hit the Internet all around the world as i type. Graham that is a good point,  new production tubes, what about them.

Wow, so someone else is 'up on the vaccines scam' that poisons innocents >:( >:( >:(.  Just stupid about the valves as the amounts of mercury is relatively tiny, but that's where common and sense does not go together, it's either black or white and nothing in between, I hate governments for this as they should be doing something more worthwhile.  When I came into oz a brand new pair of trainers tried on once where said to be contaminated, when I asked to see them I looked real hard and well, I guess they fitted a family member..................... :'(
