For me, the true cost of owning a USAF-596 rectifier tube can never be known...or so I hope. The future might very well find me in the office...on the couch. Where she's directing me in a very calm and soothing voice to speak freely about The Mighty 596.

 

Therapist: What does this tube do and what does it do for you? 

        SO:  This could take a while. At $200/hour, could you donate hours 2 and 3, so I could elaborate a bit? ksc75smile.gif

Could you donate hours 2 and 3 so I can buy a few backup 596's?

Fascination --

 

Great to see our studio exercise discretion. Curiously, how many of you (including you too, Glenn) would like to see Glenn float a Project Calendar? Showing whose build and description is in progress, and who's on deck with description of project - amp; preamp; mono blocks; phono stage ect. Can be strictly shared through PM if preferred. And if any member simply wanted to keep it a surprise to all of us, Glenn can keep the work private.

Just a few of my thoughts being made audible...and visible.

Project Calendar will put Glenn in robotic mode. I don't think he is in to make this into a business like other amp builders yet. I sure he would like some flexibility in his life, and enjoy other things. Don't shoot me, just saying...biggrin.gif

 

I am working on make a logo/Signature for his work.

I agree, this man's calendar in life is already full. But here is my thinking and it's not exactly extra work. I used the word calendar to express my view. But all I'm really after is a chance to learn what he's working on and what's on deck.wink_face.gif

 

I might get inspired by a project if only I learned of it. Sometimes, I find myself saving for something else, only to make the purchase and then discover a fantastic build emerging from our maker. Perhaps, this clears things up - he could do this by simply posting or PM.

Right now I am rebuilding a speaker amp for Xcalibur255 then I have a 45 amp to build for Xcalibur255. A Energizer to build for Seamaster. then I have three OTL amps to build.

Then maybe design a phono pre using D3m tubes to replace my SS one I  built 30 years ago but keep the SS moving coil part.

You have to realize I have stage 4 cancer and take some powerful poison to keep it subdued so sometimes after work

I am to rundown to do much work and things take longer then I planed.  Hope to have the speaker amp finished this weekend.

Yes, certainly no pressure. Thanks for illuminating things. Hopefully, it is understood I simply want to know what's possible, while I dream, shop and save. Like "Ooh, I want one of those..."

Glenn, your efforts are appreciated. Make sure you do what you need to for your health. That comes first.
post #1020 of 9442

Glenn don't forget your holiday plans.

 

And my second amp when you finish all the above.

 

Seamaster that's really nice, waiting to see your design.

Are you going to use GR in the logo?
