Rebuilding The Heathit AT-1 Transmitter - Starting Assembly

Finally the tube sockets arrived, so I could get started with the actual assembly.

The new sockets were a little smaller than the originals and the mounting holes did not quite line up with the existing holes in the chassis. I cut the holes in the sockets into slots using a Dremel tool and cutoff wheel. That made it fit well enough.

As well as the tube sockets and terminal strips, I remounted the transformer and choke, front panel controls and panel.

I'm now ready to start wiring and installing the components.

Looking good Jeff, that's a very clean looking chassis too!
