I had just reached the point of starting to wire up the heater circuit the other night when--
I broke a terminal on the oscillator tube socket and realized the modulator socket was oriented wrong.
The modulator socket was easy to fix -- unsolder the one modulation transformer lead still attached, removed retaining ring, turn socket, reinstall.
The oscillator socket is ceramic and not as easy. After a false start and much struggling, I did get it moved.
One of the coils arrived today. Thanks to an uninformed packing job, it rattled around in the box all the way and arrived with the fragile old plastic broken.
Such damage is not unsusual; the old plastic becomes quite brittle over time. It's just disappointing.
(The damaged octal socket is next to the coil.)
Some of the frequency-determining crystals (probably) arrived today, but they're "signature required" and no one was home. I'll try to pick them up tomorrow. One step at a time.
