@Radkres..........wasn't ignoring you mate .....I got case made on a 50's radio
all fancy fretwork like your grandma had ;-)


started building the worx inside .......then was a convo about valves etc
and I thought if I put a 70's valve in this 50's radio  :java:


you lot would batter me  :doc:


to be honest I forgot about it  :mwah: ........I've got the attention span of a gnat!!
