I started work on the chassis for the EQ, but its on hold until the custom transformers and custom inductors arrive from Cinemag. Meanwhile I decided to go through my paper in oil capacitor collection to see if I had enough variety to build the Flux Bender. Not even close. I spent the better part of this morning scouring the internet for my vintage cap needs, with a good deal of success. Unfortunately, I now realize I'll have to charge a hell of a lot more for this EQ.
I'm sure it will blow minds when its complete, but getting there has been the hard part due to the massive self-funded built cost. I've been gathering parts for this endeavor for about 6 months and I have almost everything. Its over budget because I refuse to settle for less than the best components, even if it costs a lot more than I expected. The Flux Bender will be the most complex wiring feat I've ever attempted, so I don't want to cut any corners anywhere.
