The friendly neighborhood UPS man dropped this on my steps while I was out getting dog food this afternoon. Inside each of those boxes is 25 pounds of big nickel lamination. !/2 of it is 49% and the other half is 80%. The 49% makes a wonderful full range 8W output transformer for say a 300B and the 80% will do a glorious full range 3W for say a 2A43, 45 or 50!
In order to keep my limited space under control I try to keep it so when something new comes in, something old needs to go out. Since I have been craving this big nickle for about 5 years, some hard choices needed to be made.
100+ pounds by Large Flat Rate Box.
~70 pounds by padded envelope
I still needed another 80 pounds and realizing I Also have another 30 pounds of small 80% on the way made my decision doubly tough. Should I use the box or padded envelope approach?
Since I believe the USPS has pretty strict rules about shipping Jedi warriors, the padded evvelope approach wins... Now where did I but those contractor bags?
