LM3886T amp - £6.00 each.
This tape is a brilliant and easy way to make transistor insulators. Just cut off what you need and stick it down. It can be removed without leaving mess behind and won't slide around like silpads etc. No compound is needed, but you can use it if you want. I've also been using it for loads of other things such as holding things down whilst soldering as it doesn't go all sticky or shrivel up with heat.
M3x12 Torx screw - £0.05 each.
Ideal for mounting transistors, Torx screws won't drop off your screwdriver and won't chew up. T10 driver fitment.
M3 Belville washer - £0.05 each.
Essential for mounting transistors, Belville washers provide 360 degree even clamping and ensure the screw stays tight under heat cycling due to the spring action of the cone design. A2 stainless steel, also known as 18-8 or 304 grade.
M3 9mm repair washer - £0.05 each.
Essential for mounting transistors, use underneath a Belville washer. A2 stainless steel, also known as 18-8 or 304 grade.
M3 tophat insulator - £0.12 each.
Use these insulators with the above screws and tape to achieve a reliable and solid electrically insulated fixing. Either trim the insulator flush with the back of the device or drill a 3.6mm diameter 2.6mm deep recess to your hole.
High performance flexible 0.2C/W individual TO-3P and TO-247 insulators made from Kapton, no paste needed - £0.15 each.
Lead former for resistors and diodes etc - £6.00 each.
These are brilliant and save loads of hassle and time! Using this tool you will get perfect bends in the right place every time. Just lay the component in the appropriate slot on the former and bend the legs. The gap in the middle is just the right size to keep 1/4 watt resistors and small diodes centralised. The other side of the former has a gap to suit 1/2 watt resistors.
Gasket tape 9.5mm wide 3.2mm thick - £1.00 per metre.
Really good quality foam self adhesive gasket tape for mounting loudspeakers and plate amps.
