    Ampmaker Double 6 Build Question

    Aaaaand sorted! Barry from Ampmaker got in touch to say that this is a different transformer from the one in the instructions and is a dual 120v - basically it needs a wire to connect the two primaries: Cheers and thanks! Ben

    Ampmaker Double 6 Build Question

    Thanks @Big John , the reason I was looking at the transformer is because there is no power coming from the Watts switch to the turret board .. I've checked across all the lugs on the secondary windings and am coming up with zilch .. I may well be measuring at the wrong point on the transformer...

    Quick Q on Stewmac Soundhole Cutter Screw size!

    Hi all, I have the soundhole cutter but have lost the screws for mounting it to the dremel router base .. does anyone know what size these screws are? I'm guessing they are imperial as an m4 bolt nearly fits but the thread is wrong .. Cheers!

    Ampmaker WF-55 kit speaker configuration ..

    Thank you @Angus Blackmore for the tip! I will have to research the blue mod. Thank you also @Soul Tramp, I will definitely give that a thought; I looked at the Weber but it's not as easy to come by in the UK and has a hefty price tag ..

    What did i do wrong here:

    Yep, I treat my new templates with CA glue as well. Also, if I munch a template I use car body filler to fill it in, wait 30 minutes and then sand it flush, works like a charm!
