Hi Bob, Nice looking job. I have not worked on a DX-100 in 25 yrs but 
your posting brought back thoughts about a problem we had with the 
DX-100 at that time. The original DX-100's had the sockets for the high 
voltage rectifiers mount tight up against the chassis. Occasionally one 
would have a pin rivet arc to the chassis when the HV was turned on. It 
took a fuse out so fast that you had no chance to see what happened. 
This was solved by adding a few small washers to space the sockets down 
from the chassis.  You might want to look at this before you power up 
the rig as it will drive you batty if this starts to happen. I believe 
that in the later units this was resolved but I am sure there are enough 
old rigs around. After all that is what we look for.  73
