    Didn't read just saw the pic. You really need a TLDR section with a brief synopsis for us folks that value our time and have more important things to do than read your incessant ramblings.

    You know that Bill posted that, right? Why would you assume any of that?

    What you really mean is that I need a Ripper-only section with just pictures, right? :fearful:

    Because he's smart?

    My assumptions are generally pretty accurate, there are certain
    Lol I tend to pick up on traits, and phrases.

    Very nice. Any idea what it's made of?
    I'll have to drop the guy a line and see about getting a 6sn7 version - ideally about 1/2" shorter on the bottom half. Basically I'd want the 6sn7 diameter part to be just above the Vali case.

    I am liking the PCB based adapters that were sent along with the ECC40s too. They fit in the Vali much better that I expected - no worries about shorting on the casing, and they still stick up just high enough to get enough of a grip on the socket to remove the adapter. I'll probably get ones for my 12au7s and 5670s in the near future.

    What the casing is made of? Not sure. It's similar in feel to a phenolic resin (like older octal tube bases), but that's about the best description I can offer. I haven't seen what the empty case looks like, but from the exterior construction it appears that either end could possibly be shortened by sawing it off with the proper tool. Perhaps @Deyan can offer some info to help out here.

    That's cool. Just wondering if it was plastic, metal, bones of some near extinct animal… I'll definitely explain what I'm looking for when I get in touch.

    I wonder if they're 3D printed - I hope Deyan shows up to provide some info. It's really nice work.

    Could very well be 3D printed. Didn't think of that possibility.

    Crap...now I'm looking at 3D printers on Amazon. Thanks heaps. :laughing:

    That particular one is from polycarbonate. It's no 3D printed it's turned down on a lathe. I hop this answers some questions.

    That answers all the questions. So with lathe turning I assume you can alter the length dimensions pretty easily? Or do you just do standard sizes?

    Crap...now I'm looking at lathes on Amazon. :slight_smile: :smile:
  15. Deyan
    You can alter the sizes any way you like. But I do try and keep them more or less the same.
