An "economy build" can be done for around $1000 USD. (parts cost)

 

Well, this is far more than I expected ...

Nothing for me at the moment (and in the nearer future)

I have a working Power Supply, but my DMM shows some wierd readings after 10 seconds, slow drop in volts. It could be the DMM though. Reads 502v, then drops gradualy more and more, It now seems to be stabilizing at 398v.

Over both - and +?

I couldn't get a reading from -, + was 502v then dropped slowly. Tomorrow I will test extensively.

I'd first check the secondaries of the transformer to see if the windings are labelled wonky.

 

Good hunting.

While I much prefer to see DIY projects turn out well, I'm going to start looking for train wreck GIFs in anticipation......

It sucked royal ass.

Compounded by having the b24 transformer and some dac stuff in the same shipment.

Five transformers for the KGSSHV and two for the F5 in one shipment. Thankfully it came in 4 boxes. From SumR in Canada to Aus by slow boat.

I refuse to wait for slow boat... the premium for the 3-5 day jobbie is like 50 bucks.

If it's a big order then it's worth it from a bald spot minimization point of view.

Well Richard was saying to me 3 weeks for Surface Mail, turned out to be 2 months. SumR need to understand there shipping ETA's a bit better, I also would have went with Air Mail had I known.

there are other folks who manufacture transformers ..you do know that right? especially in australia..Why only ordering from SumR?

Woohoo, healthy Power Supply, reading 499v on the minus rail and 502v on the plus rail. Sorry there are no explosions for you Beefy.
