the Merren OT's are fantastic. Haven't used the PT's.
I use the ValveStorm wire on all of my builds, it's the best that I have used.
Got my Valvestorm JTM45 order today. Still waiting for the Metrospec transformers and need to order a cabinet.
Nice, are you gonna get started without the PT and OT?
nice work bench by the way. I like the window you can look out. Is it in the house or is that a garage? Here is mine. Don’t have a window but got a 65” Samsung smart out of the trash. New mother board fixed it for 70 bucks.
Enjoy the build
That’s and old pic. Here is today. I have the flag over the TV when I’m not watching it.
PT and choke landed today! Also- measure twice, cut once. The cutout on my chassis is for a smaller PT so I'll have to mod it a bit . Oh well, it will give me something to do until everything else comes in!
Thanks to Amadeus91 for the hookup!

Wow that thing looks vintage (in a good way)!
Yeah, I would definitely call this "big boy iron"
Are there any guidelines on how to space the power tube sockets? Annoyingly, this chassis does not have a cutout to hang the 32 + 32 can cap between v5 and v6 and instead is designed for both cans to mount against the wall next to the pt. Since I'm already gonna have to cut it, I might as well fix that too while I'm at it.
I would be tempted to mount them to the wall, but now is the time to change it. if you desire.
Yeah, I’m concerned I won’t have clearance above the pt, but if I do then I’ll just leave it be. I’ll have to test fit it all when I get the OT.
I see what you mean, that Transformer does look big.
That’s inside my garage and you know that I started working on it. I’ll probably put in the tube sockets and maybe wire the preamp heaters. I started populating the board today. I did this wiring yesterday.
I bet you have room to do the cans inside. Which chassis are you using?
I thought that was weird, then I realised you went Mojotone and not Valvestorm
It’s Mojotone, I’m pretty sure it won’t fit. But we’ll see.
