"Wouldn’t sweat either location Day. That bottom chassis pan should act like a nice radiator. This was a long haul, I like the results."

"I've got that power transformer as far away from everything as it can be.  I can move it backward a bit, almost poking out the back of the cabinet."

"The orientation of the power transformer with respect to the receiver may be a more important consideration than heat from he 6L6's and 5U4's"

"Here's an ugly pic of the cabinet from behind, showing the power supply section.  I oriented the power supply so that the 6L6's were as far away from the tuner section above it as possible.  I'll install a home theater type…"

"Excellent cabinet execution Day !  Be nice and pull access door for photo of those big beautiful 6L6s. Hope all’s well down on the ranch. Our lakes remain ice covered for a little longer, a Winter to forget !"

"Here it is guys, home at last.  We put in an access panel on the back side, so that I could get to cables and presets.  Intend to install a silent fan system in bottom panels, the kind you'd find in an A/V system.  It's an…"

"800B seems to play fine, waiting for my cabinet to be built.  In the meantime, hooked up my external TV yagi as FM source, instead of inside dipole.  Still runs fine, but not much better, to be honest.  However, also hooked up the…"

Day Radebaugh replied to David C. Poland's discussion Jim Clark's E H Scott Radio Collector's guide.
"I can do all of these things with minor changes to the dimensions.  I'll drill some holes in the bottom of the cabinet to the front side of the amp, and mount a PC fan behind the amp, in order to pull air across those output…"

"Dave: Your suggestion about grille cloth below receiver is a good one, and I can do it.  Also just discovered that the pigtail recep that the phono used to plug into is switched when unit turns on.  That would allow me to install a silent…"

"I have 3" above the tubes in the amp; would that be sufficient? Also, I have a couple of tears that have to be fixed in the woofer.  I hear that coffee filter paper and glue works.  Any suggestions? Thanks"

"We knocked together a prototype of my 800B cabinet.  Here it is, on the left of my reading chair, where I can reach over easily and tune it.  The tuner is over the amplifier chassis, and behind the speaker. A few tweaks required on…"
