Today, 11:43 AMCapacitor leakage tester - applied voltage in volts on the left and leakage through capacitor in millivolts on right -
Awesome! I need a better DMM and wouldn't mind getting one of those self contained cap testers (though they seem really expensive for one with decent accuracy)
Yesterday, 08:43 PMProbably so. I got this off the website of Magnetic Components Inc. who make the Classic Tone trannys and apparently a bunch of other transformers for military and industrial uses.
"About Us: Magnetic Components, Inc. has been manufacturing transformers in the Chicago area since 1943. We maintain a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility. We pride ourselves as being a small, family owned and operated transformer company located right here in the Chicago area, the original home of the USA transformer industry."
I just ordered some! It would be cool if the new Supros used them. I looked at the Supro site and couldn't tell
Yesterday, 06:41 PMAhhh cool, cheers for that.. The thing is that I really don't think it will get in the way anyway.. The blank is like 19" long, I only need 16".. So im hoping it will just be part of the off cuts..
Do you normally work with inches or are you just having mercy on me? Or has luthiery forced you to use inches?

Yesterday, 06:14 PMCool.. Yeah, despite what people say, theres nothing wrong with a nice bit of pine... I have always liked the look of it...
And actually the wood wasn't that expensive... Much the same as any nice looking body blank.. and actually the bigger bit was even cheaper.. If you look at the pic you will see that theres a small area that's circled on the top.. That's where theres a small split.. but its very small and I think it will get cut out anyway (hoping its not too deep)..
If you drill a hole through the end of the crack, it will stop it from spreading further down the piece while you work on it.
The pine is a little knotty as usual I'm hoping it doesn't give me too many problems taking the stain lol
