DC40B construction: Day 2

Well, I found a replacement for the one resistor I screwed up, and started work on all the caps. They are all in and double checked (I only screwed up one capacitor, which I quickly desoldered, moved, and resoldered). I then got the trimmers in, and soldered in the 16 pin socket. I was gonna start on the toroids, but Mythbusters was on, so I thought I'd take a break. I'm guessing it will take a couple more sessions to get all the semiconductors in, do some minimal testing, and then apply power for real.

Stay tuned....
