Introduction: DIY Tube Amplifier With Old Tv
Hello friends, this is my first publication, and want to show this amp I
did recycling components of an old television tube that no longer worked (had like 40 or 45 years or so).
Step 1: Remove Circuit Chassis From an Old Tube Tv
This is the TV chassis, are still all components that we will not use
Step 2: Remove Components That Are Not Going to Use
After finding the audio input, output transformer components and discard (trial and error), we are left with a valve audio (6Z10), capacitors, input transformer, choke, and output transformer:
Step 3: Make the New Chassis
Wood cutting, screwing and gluing
Step 4: Putty
Putty to erase imperfections (holes screws, etc.), as the leatherette with which I will cover much copy the surface.
Step 5: Sanding
Step 6: Lined With Leatherette
Leatherette glued with contact cement. Many stick with white glue or other adhesives, but cement is the more comfortable I feel.
Step 7: Faraday Cage
Foil glued to generate a Faraday cage and avoid environmental interference (Very Important).
Step 8: Presentation
Presentation surface components. I like to look around in the valve amplifiers. Be careful with the armed and avoid touching components when the amp is plugged in
Step 9: Copying the Circuit
Copying the circuit, having marked each component and its position.
Step 10: And the End Result
Step 11: End
I hope you like it and find many ideas
