Well Bob, all I can say is that Im flexible in the final design. I mentioned 
those tubes and voltages since that was what I have on and and I'm trying to 
stuff it all in one rack. However if I go with two supplies I suppose I can 
use stacks of electrolytics to save space as well as get the C up and save 
on choke size. Dunno, I havent run the math yet but I have a bunch of 
handbooks and engineering manuals from the 30's and 40's to keep me company.

Its a relearning process as well as incorporate some newer ideas Ive picked 
up over the past few months by doing a lot of Internet reading.

At least I have a full array of test equipment this time around to minimize 
the guesswork.
