This looks fucking amazing!
Well, gimp has really decided that it doesn't like working with large files. It has crashed more in the last 5 hours than it has ever crashed since I've used it. I've configured it to use up to 30gb of ram and it's using it all. Probably going to have to break this image up into smaller portions and tackle it in bite size chunks.
So, I've scanned one side of the primal rage cabinet and used #gimp to reassemble. Next step is to remove the scuffs and other defects and then I'll work on restoring the red that missing from an aggressive cleaner. Happy with the progressive so far.
This box smells like a grandmas house. I’ll be happy if the scanner works. Will test tonight.
Oh boy, we’ve got some solid comparability!
Alright so holy fuck. After replacing all of the caps and pots, adjusting the b+ voltage…this monitor looks REALLY GOOD! Excuse the refresh line 😂🤣 Good old analog tech. All that is left now is to clean up this cabinet. I think we’ll get it ready for the basement!
Alright, inspection was pretty good although it still failed. My fire blocking and framing was good and 99% of the electrical was good. We need a few outlets installed in locations that don't have one. The bathroom outlet is weird. It has to be on 12/2 wire and tied into a GFI circuit. We'll be able to tie into existing 12/2 for the bathroom circuit since it runs through the basement. Just a junction box and running some wire 😎
Really happy otherwise. Glad there isn't major rework 😅
Alright, that’s enough for the day. Board is capped and new pots installed. I’ll probably put it all back together this week and see if we fixed any of the issues it had before. I’m looking for an adapter for this monitor to use with my rejuvenator to bring some life to the tube, but I’m hoping this may fix some of the other issues. We’ll see. 🤞
Caps are removed. Replacing them all with nichicon caps. No joke, desoldering gun was the best thing I’ve picked up in a while. Makes desoldering easy, less stressful, and surprisingly satisfying.
