I best get Itoru, Sally, and Marilyn together and tell them the good news. The girls are going to be so happy to have a new sister around.

 

Why not name her Lekeisha lol ;)

Say can anyone here throw up a link to a nice small screwdriver for opening up the Leckerton. All my screwdrivers are rather big

You can use a regular sized screw driver to open it up. In all honesty the first couple time you open it it will be a bit tough. But also be sure to line up the faceplate correctly which will make it much easier to put back in and take out :). I tend to push down or up (depending on what position you are holding the amp) while putting the screws back in to remove resistance. Keep in mind you only need to remove the front cover and don't waste your time removing the back plate. The board slides right out once you remove the 2 screws.

Get a miniature screwdriver kit -- either a half-dozen or dozen screwdrivers with flat, Phillips, and hex ends, or a socket set with a dozen or two different tips. They're all good.

If you're collecting amps, you may as well collect the tools to go with them, right?

Can't fight that logic, I've already gotten the IC Puller for yanking the op amps so I might as well get a nice small fit kit together. Hmphhh THIS doesn't look to bad. What do you guys think?

Looks like it will do the trick but look at those reviews lol. I tend to be a stickler for bad reviews. But it's not always the case though :P. Some people are just crybabies over stupid things....

Yeah I see what you mean. I'm just going to wait until Eva arrives and I'll take her down to Rona and find something then.

The problem with the cheap kits is that the tips are soft and sometimes ruined after one use, usually taking out the screwhead when it goes.

Go to your local Sears/Sears Roebuck and get one of the Craftsman precision tool or jeweler's tool sets. Good, hard tips and lifetime warranty on most of them.

My Wiha drivers have been through a couple decades of use and abuse. I've got down to a #000 Philips, but #00 is about as small as I've seen in consumer equipment that I'd want to take apart myself. They are still high quality, from what I can tell.

Whatcha guys think to much overkill

:P If you have a regular sized screw driver (not the monster giant ones) it will work fine :).

For anyone wanting confirmation about the Hakshop cable and the Leckteron UHA-6S.MKII - it works of course. Just got my Leckterton today, early impressions favourable.
