Dee has a silk screening process that he does to the front panel of 
those old johnson rigs.  I've seen a couple that he's done, and no 
doubt, they come out looking better than they did when they were brand 
new in the 50's and 60's.  Somewhere, some hamfest, someone had a Ranger 
I,, that had a re-finished front panel, and the owner then had the case 
chrome plated.  Looked sharp... but it wasn't 'right' looking if I were 
going for aesthetics).

I think I want to build up a single 6080, or 6SA7... some dual-triode 
tube with substantial plate dissipation, and then modulate it with a 
pair of the same.

Driving your AM Rig without a scope, 
is like driving your car at night, without headlights. (K4KYV)
