Yes, if this is unclaimed- lets use it in Arch 2 for music… I will take this project on


Joe has some boxes I think :grinning:

Yes please!!

I inspected this one when the owner brought it in, has a very nice sound and it’s an easy and robust construction inside

That’s exactly why I’ve been holding onto for the last year or so. It was acquired by Howard and as far as I know is untested but should be fixable

Cool! Got speakers for it?

No have had my eye out for them but no luck so far.

You know me I keep lots of projects in the background waiting for the bits to turn up for free it’s a recycling eco thing.

But I’m happy you voluntarily taking this project off me :slight_smile:

I’m thinking to put it down the metal end as I’ve already got some music sorted for the new wood shop

Cool cool, yeah I will find some speakers and take this on - definitely need some tunes while making! :guitar:

Ok- changing my vote… :slight_smile:

Just tested the amp… only the left channel works, and the sound is pretty poor… could it be fixed? Sure… is it worth it? Not for me…


Probably worth 10 minutes poking around inside it to find a fault

Take a look if you like- I wasn’t impressed with the sound of the channel that was working…

Its in the old woodshop…

This must be a different one then, the one I tested was very good, I’m happy to give it a look tomorrow

Don’t throw it out worst case scenario is that we use it’s transformer as the brake on the new sander assuming it’s powerful enough

Yeah cool thanks guys- have a look and see what you think!

If you want to have a look at it we could turn it into a tutorial into repairing electronic equipment I would be a good opportunity skill sharing I would be more than happy to do that one night

Thats a good idea, some fault finding / electronics repair! Lets discuss dates/times!
