Hello all again,

I did ty-rap a cupla micro fans to the backside of this because I just
couldn't trust thermal convection. They are very quiet and the ty-raps
will allow me to return to original snip-snip.

I'm glad some others are enjoying a unique idea from 'back then'.

now working on an E.F. Johnson 6n2 amp, whoohooo
