Martin, you were such a good sport at CF I will offer you mine. All 3 Xnsfrmrs, 1 capacitor and a strip. What I need to know is how many tabs you need on the the strip.

Alex, if you haven't gotten the "clear" on the inventory thing....just send me the box. I'll get it all out to him ASAP and we'll clear things up later when you get the "Go".

I'm so damned busy right now, I have no time to build the amps I have so I might as well pass it on to someone who was a great addition to CF and wants to build said amplifier.

Dave, I lost signal. The weather is bad around here right now......it was nice talking to you, as always and we'll catch up later. Toy, call me when you get the chance.

That is a very gracious offer. You're a saint.
However, I think Alex is planning on sending them.
AlexSauter wrote:When it comes to the transformers,I will send you yours, and I will send Bill his ASAP.

There is also the matter of this:
tracking.JPG

It's going to be at their house tomorrow......
Just a few feet away from my transformers......
Wouldn't it be a little weird to NOT just:

Lift parts.
Put parts in box.
Put label on box.
Call Fedex.

I mean, I'm kinda baffled about that.

Even you seem to believe that I simply forgot to get them at CF.
Bob F seems to think that.
Angelo too, I think.
Probably even Alex, James, and Dave, as well.
Wouldn't Bob C, too?

Is it really all that difficult for someone to take a little initiative
and say,
"OK, I believe it's the right thing to do and I'm sending these parts out."
James?
Alex?

If I hadn't forgotten them, they wouldn't be there to inventory.
They'd be in my amp right now.
So why, oh why, can't they just be removed from one box,
carried into the next room, and put in another and sent to their proper home?

Having said all of that...
If, for some reason,
(which I cannot possibly imagine)
it is not possible for Alex (or James, or Dave, if he's there, or one of the girls )
to send my transformers, I would be very happy to have yours in their place.
Thanks again for the kindness and support.

I have 25 capacitors on the way already.
Three are going to Rabbit
and the other extra 21 are for anyone else who is missing them in their kits.
(They are the brown 220uF 35v biasing caps shown in the op.)
There's a pic of the strip I need in the first post as well. Here's bigger one:
terminal strip.jpg

If you want to send it, cool. If not, I'm sure I can find one.
I'm feeling pretty lucky after the 12 cent capacitor score.

One final note:
I think I'm going to print a copy of this thread after this amp is built and attach it to the bottom.
People of the future should see how "effortless" it was to get parts in the old days.

Re: OK Alex, Here you go ...

Sorry I wasn't online yesterday guys...

Martin, your box arrived yesterday and I packed it up this morning. It was checked into the computer at 10:30, it will be there tomorrow morning!!

Good luck with your build,

Alex

Re: OK Alex, Here you go ...

Marty, I think you are a cool guy but as a friend I have to tell you:

Nobody likes a Winer


I still don't have my amp. It will be shipped as soon as Tom gets a "roundtuit".

I have looked on the internet, trying to find a "roundtuit" but no luck so far.

Still I'm not wining about it.

See what i mean?

It will get here when it gets here.

Just sayin'

Love you too, sugar. :)
Stop comparing me to Ethan.
He's Mark's kryptonite, did you know that?
I would LOVE to see those two in a room together.
anyway...

Actually, didn't really need it 'this minute.' I'm not going to die without my transformers.
If anyone would have ever said
'Yeah man, we realize you're not trying to rip us and you'll eventually get it.'
I'd have just STFU and left it alone.
Instead, no one said shit to me for a couple of weeks and was left to wonder.
Is it me?
I figured I'd make it easy simply because I hate fucking with packing and shipping other people's crap.
Maybe I guessed wrong on all of it.
My intentions were good,
even if I only succeeded in making myself look (even more) like a total asshat.

TNRabbit wrote:So.....are you just fucking with him by calling him MARTIAN, or do you just not know how to spell?

He's always called me that. I thought it was a term of endearment.

AlexSauter wrote:Martin, your box arrived yesterday and I packed it up this morning. It was checked into the computer at 10:30, it will be there tomorrow morning!!

Is this guy the greatest or what? I mean less than 24 hours? Holy crap. Plus, I think he even did the inventory just so I could have my stuff right away and wouldn't miff Bob.
He also called me twice to let me know that he was on his way to FedEx and to let me know that they tried to rip me off on the shipping. (Which I was able to get fixed, thanks to his call.)
And to top it all off, the FedEx people made him redo the box.

The lesson here:

It doesn't ever really work out like that, does it?
Thanks again, Alex.

Um, maybe you slept though part of the thread.
It's pretty dull.
Mostly some guy whining about not having his crap or something.
Go back to sleep.
We'll wake you up if something interesting happens.
I promise.

Re: OK Alex, Here you go ...

Oh yeah, one more thing:
caps.jpg

We have caps!
Rabbit, send me your address.
Anyone else who need these babies, let me know.
I've got about 20 and they're FREE to all who didn't get any.
(until I run out)
I can probably start sending them out Monday.
As soon as I finish this post, I'm off to Atlanta (Fairburn?)
TGIF!

O.K. lets tackle these one at a time:

First...I am NOT your Sugar. I hardly know you. I mean you're O.K. and all but "sugar"...I don't think so.

Second...I'm not comparing you to Ethan. Who the fuck is Ethan?

Third...Mark Who?

Last...I don't know or care who or what you'd like to see in a room together.

It seems you ask more questions than you answer Martin.

I hope you get you shit from Alex soon & we can move on.

I would have been fine with 'whiner' because I am one.
But 'Winer'??? Them there is fightin' words in audio circles.
'Winer' as in Ethan Winer. The Basstraps guy.
This guy infuriates Mark (Radioeng2) in a way that you cannot begin to imagine.

Third: see second
