Thank you for you reply so where is the first 2? :O in the ground screw? it already came with one washer .. I am clueless.. In page 14 its said I should put one in the transformator screw and I did.. 

 

Ok time for voltage testing :O

 

 

Edit: 

Ok i just noticed its a small lock washer not large, my bad.. I will go over my steps.

Doc,

 

Is the site still down?  I'm getting "no data received".

Just finished, my first DIY project and basically soldering in general, enjoyed every moment, couldn't stop working on it.

SpeedBall is waiting to be added in a few week, also hoping to replace the volume knob as soon as possible :)

We are making some changes to the website structure that are rather technical. Our IT man is working on it very intensely and we will have it up ASAP. Probably have the forum live some time in the next 18-24 hours.

:beerchug: Congratulations I wonder how long you will last before fitting your Speedball? I managed a week before the temptation to fit mine  got the better of me.

atraf: that's a beautiful looking amp and congrats on your first build! Which stain did you use for the base?

HOLZLASUR 2000 dark brown, I was planning on making it shiny by putting varnish or wax on it but after one layer I really loved the color so I left it this way.

A plain bees wax based polish can help to keep the colour exactly the same while giving it a beautiful smooth finish. I tried various varnish options and kept being unhappy with the results so I sanded back my Mainline and S.E.X. boxes and polished then waxed both with a simple bees wax polish. The results are stunning and impossible to stuff up!

Since the BH site was down for few days i decided to sand and prime/spray painted the sides of the crack transformer i hope this is not a bad thing.

I think the most simple looking finished for the Crack base is the rounded edges,but then again that just me...:biggrin: BTW that is what i'am going to do with mine too.

Does the speedball addon effect electronic music much?

 

I listen to a lot of house/techno.

The speedball will give you more bass extension.
