Default Re: Restorers dream part 2 the chassis.

The two pictures will give some idea of the degree of spark produced by a healthy EHT supply. This is taken from my Ekco T330. It uses the later type of plug in rectifier the U26 but other than that it is identical. Note the screwdriver is NOT shorted to chassis for the AC end, picture 1. [single wire] but is touched to the chassis [screening can] for the DC test, picture 2 [twin wire end] The DC side produces loud cracks! J.
