Here we have a dead Ferguson 236A Table Top Wireless Set from around 1950 in for repair. We must not disturb the chassis connections or we will open up a large can of worms for the future.
A nice challenge.

The 66 now has a little brother the Double Six. Utilising a pair of EL84 output valves that give you a choice of power ratings from about 15Watts down to 1Watt for studio/home use.
There is no case around the amplifier as it is designed to not only sound but look the part and still built and tested in the UK with locally sourced components by one of the best engineers in the business.
