    Thanks!

    I never seem to get much splatter. I just use a good iron and maybe the type of solder and its diameter I use helps? I use Kester 63/37. That and I figure splatter is from outgassing, right? The rosin flux boiling off. So the angle and speed at which you feed solder will affect how much splatter you get. Just my theory, but it seems to work.

    Gone very quiet over here....
    I’ve been watching this thread (from the UK) with real interest.
    Any news?
    Progress?

    Cheers, Paul H.

    Can filter caps use only two pin caps as the ones in the below quote?

    I was looking at my build which is a 50 watt plexi and mine are showing 3 pin filter caps, 2 being positive and 1 being hooked to ground.

    Technically yes, practically speaking no. A single 50uf film cap rated for 50 watt voltages is quite large physically about 1x2 inches. The cap you are describing is a dual 50uf/50uf cap with a common ground, this is common for electrolytic caps. I'm not sure if anyone makes a dual film cap but a 50uf/50uf film cap rated for these voltages would be quite large and likely too tall to fit within the typical guitar amp chassis.

    On this subject when shopping even for single 50uf film caps, they come in a bunch of different sizes. Older stock typically are larger than newer stock. The length, width, height varies. Sometimes a cap with a higher rated voltage is smaller, another indication of older stock vs newer stock. These film caps continue to shrink in size over time with improved manufacturing methods. So search on 50uf, in a voltage rating range of 500vdc to 900vdc (watch the VAC ratings). Start with the size format that best fits your needs. That could be a higher voltage rated cap in a smaller size, and likely more expensive, vs a larger cap with a lower voltage rating and lower price.

    In other news my amp project continues to be on hold due to my day job work has been insane. Likely no time for it until the major holidays later this year.

    Such is life.

    If you only knew what my Laboratory looked like, full of life moments.

    Cheers!

    I purchased 2 Tele's, 2 banjos, and 1 acoustic the past few months, plus some recording gear...none have been played yet due to work/life insanity (face palm)

    I get it, coolodge56, sometimes important/work/family life precludes (also important) fun/recreation/play life. In my experience, the former generally provides resources for the latter.
    I’m confident no one is more anxious to get back to the guitars, banjos, recording and amp stuff than you!
