Tech Stuff

On this page I will have various topics on restoration and repair work, why some parts that are coveted by the audio world need to be exorcized! or maybe a better word is EXPOSED! Among other random ramblings from my daily mumbling under my breath.. Have fun, I do!

 

If you would like to know more about caps here are a few links I found on the web:

I have posted up some recent photos of a restoration process on the famed “Fisher FM-1000” stereo tuner. Take a look at the gallery. I will add notes and comments soon to each photo. This way you can follow me through the process and get an idea of what really goes into a rebuild. More phots of the finished project will be posted soon. Feel free to ask questions. This tuner when complete will be up for sale..  Dr. “Tubeology”
