    Mike -

    The Radio/TV Shops and neighboorhood electronics parts store disappeared by early 1970s.
    For the parts shown in this 6L6 build .... RadioDaze, Antique Electronics Supply, and
    Triode Electronics (western Chicago suburbs) are good sources.

    CHECK with the audiophile/guitar amplifier/musician crowd ..... they have $$$ and many older USA mfg. parts are "back in production"
    due to the members of this group -- SPEND MONEY $$ and hence they get the products !

    They even make the old style Turret boards common in 1940s and 1950s.

    Samsung just announced a NEW $800 vacuum tube (12AU7) audio pre-amplifier / speaker system.

    Use a pair of 105-108V regulators or a couple of zeners. Those tubes are very sensitive to screen voltage.

    I don't use the built in dumy load, a good idea but turned out to be a waste of time. All of the parts came from hamfests or ebay. I built the small turret board myself, I build guitar amp boards in my spare time. 002.JPG
    This is an example of a Trainwreck X-press amp board.

    As others have said, it's the screen voltage. Mine is a touch higher and I get 5.5 watts out. Nice looking rig!
