I thought it would only be fair to make it as easy on you as is humanly possible.
I never got my transformers for my second amp,
Here is my attempt to do everything I can think of to make it happen:
First, I made a custom shipping box with compartments for each transformer
so it's (hopefully) easy to pack them.
I put the following picture of the parts that I am missing into the box:
That's 3 transformers, one capacitor, and a terminal strip.
If there is anything unclear about it, please just ask.
I also included a return address label for you to stick on the box:
I am paying the shipping both ways.
All you have to do is put the label on the box and EITHER:
You can (1) drop it off at FedEx OR
you can (2) call FedEx and tell them when to come get it OR
you can (3) message/call me and I 'll call FedEx and have them go get it at a time that's convenient for you.
Now before you hit me with the inventory thing Bob wants you to do.
First, know this:
I called Bob Farinelli (after trying both your dad and you and then waiting a week after each attempt) and he said that if I paid you for two amps,
then I should get my second set of transformers.
As far as your inventory is concerned,
it shouldn't be relevant because I already paid for them!
I put $370 into your hand myself and you personally logged it.
I also had unlimited access to all of the spare parts while I was there because I was in cabin 5,
So, if there's a question as to whether this is an attempt to rip anyone to build an extra amp, I could have just taken all the parts I wanted while I was there and wouldn't have to be begging on the internet. And, I might add, spending a fortune on shipping. Hell, it was over $20 just to ship you the (almost) empty box and the transformers will add an additional 7 1/2 lbs, according to EdCor.
If there's any other single thing in the world that I can do to make this happen,
please let me know.
If I could drive down there and get them myself,
I would, believe me.
That said, If you'd like me to call Bob Carver's shop and beg them to tell him to let you send me my transformers, I'll do that.
This has been going on for a month now and I just want to build my other amplifier.
I understand that everyone is tired after Carverfest.
I scored a 58 on that test your dad posted, FWIW.
So, you can believe that I empathize with you about depression.
It runs in families and mine has it bad.
On a positive note, I somehow wound up with a wayward transformer cover:
I have packed it in the box I sent.
It's just an output xfmr cover, but it's one less you have to search for.
Also, if the shipping box survives the round trip, I can send it back to you again so someone else can have their transformers shipped in it. It'll be at your house sometime this week. I think it went out 3 day air. Please, please, please, please send me my parts.
