Thanks for the welcome!
After over 50 years of building, working with and repairing audio equipment, mainly as a hobby, I've now got quite a pile of stuff to work on, from total rebuilds to just minor tune up's. Time to start getting this stack worked down (per my wife)!
I still have a lot of tube gear i built as a kid (Scotts Fishers, Dynacos ) which i plan to go thru plus later as well vintage solid state I've purchased over the years from GAS, SAE, Carver, Bose, Sony, etc. so as a result most of my equipment is older (vintage?). I also occasionally build custom wood cabinets and racks/shelving for equipment as well as speaker cabinets, crossovers, etc.
Right now Ive got a Carver TX2 tuner - works great but the display VFD died, a m500t that works great but probably time for a recap, as well as a MXR-130 which needs recap.
As soon as i can I'll post some pics.
One great thing now is the internet and these forums where its now possible to connect with other people that have same/similar interests and certainly a collective of knowledge!
Finally, I've started on the TX2 Tuner rebuild and have one question - does anyone know anything about the display VFD in the TX2? I have the part number but can't find anything anywhere about the display - even what firm made it.
