  • I think I've heard it all.

    Sharp bends are a complete no-no because electrons definitely don't like to change directions.

    I like Gowa's idea.  Maybe add city/town since Canada, USA, and Mexico are so huge!

    I have greatly reduced the 6V6 tubes' microphonics by adding these high temperature silicone rubber o-rings.  There are places on line that sell the exact same "damping" rings for $5 each.  I got these from McMaster-Carr...  package of 10 for $6.69  :)

    A couple last shots.  I like to use the 3D space available to keep good distance between signal carrying conductors and everything else (white solid conductors), and shielded cable is super effective.

    The last safety step is of course a bottom cover to keep anyone's fingers away from lethal voltages.  I don't have a picture of my bottom cover yet (sorry) but this project has one for sure. 

    On a side note one could argue that a top cage to keep kids' fingers away from the blistering hot tubes is absolutely necessary.  I won't say that it isn't, but while a burnt finger hurts really bad, it will heal.  A lethal electrical shock is, well, lethal.  If you build something like this and have little visitors over...  you decide :)
