New Carver Friday: I now have a C-1


Recommended Posts

The transformer is sadly undersized, and the voltage dropping circuitry is a bit..... imperfect.

Add the BillD upgrades, a Gundry board and a remote, it's very close to it's limits. 

I'm thinking about an outboard PS to improve on performance. You up to the challenge?

I'm just a poor sod that can't manage to go a week without falling over a deal. I barely know enough to keep from electrocuting my self once I'm in there, and here you want me to commit major surgery? 

 

If I were a more knowledgeable person - nay, a technician if you will - I would perhaps eliminate the frame transformer and go to a toroid. No more hums or buzzies. Also put a proper, potted rectifier in there instead of discrete diodes. I'm fair sure there's space a plenty in there. But what do I know?  I'm sure there's some reason that Bob Almighty designed it the way he did. I'm sure it had nothing to do with what parts were on special that week.
