Jecklin Float Electrostatic: Refurbishment & Review (lots of pictures) - Page 5

Normal 5x20 slow blow fuse is all you need here. Unlike most fuses though, these are in the signal path so you might get some improvement with more expensive types but I'd rather just buy the foam.

Maplin's have slow blow A/S from 100mA to 10A and one on ebay says "Break capacity 35A/250V or 10 x rating which ever is greater at above 3.5A" (whatever that means).
Which one is "normal"? ;-)

I'm not sure what the eBay one is getting at, probably the slow blow feature of being able to withstand a higher current draw for a short period of time then a normal fuse. Just buy from Maplin since their reputation is sound.

Ok, but which A/S value do I need? (I guess A/S means the Antisurge current at which it will blow i.e. from 100mA to 10A?)

I have no idea really, all depends on how your amp behaves into this particular load. Somewhere around 2A should be fine though.

I got a T1.6/250V fuse from a friend and the wire gauge looked similar to the existing one, so I thought it fairly safe to use - and it works fine!

Really missed the sound of these 'phones!

Are the fuses of the correct value to begin with?  There should be something about it printed on the back panel or on the PCB.  That's the only reason I can think of why they are blowing when the amp feeds the box more current. 

 

Another option might be a parts breaking down causing the box to draw too much current but I do doubt it.

Hi I'm new here as I have just found my Model 1 headphones in a box after a decade. Of course the foam has deteriorated badly and I want to fix them up and keep using them. Great description of the renovation. Does anyone supply the foam pads? Thanks.smily_headphones1.gif

Hi,

 

I'm new to this board. Recently got a Jecklin from eBay, found this thread but missing the pictures from the OP. Am I doing something wrong? Are they hidden or lost?

 

Greetings, Joerg

What is "OP" ? Disassemble them and lay out the photos here.
