I'm from Missouri too, Mark, but it sounds like you've just proved "settling in times" to yourself, via your FM-3. I've had similar experiences with other components.
Without a picture, I can't say for sure what your "little army of caps all the same size lined up for duty" is for. Are there any resistors on the board? If so, given its placement, it might be David Berning's corrected de-emphasis circuit, described below in an FM-3 modification article.
I believe Sheldon Stokes marketed (or perhaps still does) this circuit on a board for the FM-3.
I found a post from back in July on the Ghost Town formerly known as the Asylum's Dynaco-Doctor Forum. You might take note of how many bad electrolytic caps the author found. (link below)
Hi Shovel, thanks for all the info.
After a long search on the net I could not find the FM-3 tuner site that did my FM-3. I did go on Dynaco FM-3 images on Google and compared my little army of caps board to the pics. My board is a Chauncey/Epperson pc mod if your interested.It's exact.
Shovel, I have forgotten the procedure to add a picture to what I write. I have Windows 10 and cut and paste is not working for me like it used to. If you know real quick I'd love a lesson. I can find the pictures but have trouble posting them to my messages...thanks Shovel.
Shovel, I'm from Maine all my life. The closest I ever got to Missouri is being a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs when I was in the seventh grade. I still have a shirt 86, Buck Buchanan I saved up for, 1970.
Shovel, before I go I have some various Heath tube tuners I'd like to get your thoughts on. Maybe I shouldn't stray from the topic though. You are ( Tuner Man), you can't help it, you know your stuff. Thanks for sharing...Mark Korda.......PS. What about the Outlaw Josey Wales, Clint Eastwood, when he gives the pursuit a (Missouri Boat Ride).....
Shovel: "I know a girl in Maine"
Shovel: "No, we're just good friends"
Bah Dump bump!
Ok, that's enough of that. I've never been to Maine. I got close this summer (Laconia NH). We were supposed to ride up into Maine, but it didn't happen. Next year, hopefully.
The only method I know to add a picture to your post on the Asylum is to first download it to your computer.
1. Right click on the picture you want to save.
2. Choose "save picture as" from the menu.
3. Save the picture to your computer. I use my desktop for temporary pictures.
4. At the bottom of the Asylum "Post a Message" box (below where you write text) are several choices. One is "Upload Image" browse button.
5. Click "Browse" and find the picture on your desktop (or wherever you saved it) and click on it. When you preview message, the picture will upload.
More information at the link below.
Thanks so much for those (easy) instructions. They are game changing for me. The Windows 10 book for dummies couldn't do that.
Great joke! I never heard that one, really. Bangor is about 150 miles north from me and Boston 100 miles south. I'm outside of Portland now....Old Orchard Beach. In the summer it's a tourist town with a lot of Canadians from Quebec around.
Later tonight I will practice the new procedure you have taught me....thanks again Shovel....Mark.
I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures you post, especially Nina Hartley!
Hi Shovel, this is a Down East style cabinet I made with a hand saw, sheet rock screws,barn board and some old weathered pieces of a freinds old lobster traps. The rubber feet are used on a ground fishing boats trawl nets.
I made this a few years ago and have the picture already in my picture file but did write down the procedure you gave me so I can get a picture from the computer and not one I have already.....Ps. If Nina Hartley threw her hat in the ring for president right now it could be an upset land slide!...Mark K.
Hi Shovel, I realize the importance of (Step #5),the preview. I wouldn't want when asking about info for the Heathkit FM-3A mono tube tuner a picture of Nina Hartley getting attached...why...why that may get me booted out of Radio Road.....Mark.
