What's the front plate say, i can't quite make it out.... General Conference Corporation? Very cool amp Dave!
I have entered three gadgets, they are all old builds, so I don't know if they qualify or not. It doesn't really matter I just hope you all enjoy them as much as I did building them. The first is a table lamp exercise machine, if you feel like exercising and don't really want to, turn on the machine and watch the little guys do it instead. The second is a miniature amusement park inside a clock case, It really works. The third is simply called the machine and works by hauling up steel balls by 2 rubber belts and dumping them down a series of weird and wonderful traxks , setting off all sortd of contraptions on the way.
Says "General Conference Corporation" on the front, and "Physics Dept." on the side. The box portion was from some sort of scientific apparatus, long ago removed (date scribbled inside was from 1944).

I like the looks of your amp. One day when I built up the courage I would like to try to build one as well. Maybe use a Peavey/Fender type practice amp. I have seen them at the swap-meet for about $40. My amp will be a close clone of yours.
No courage required, Bob. The electronics are the easy part with those little practice amps - you can pretty much just remount 'em in whatever you want, all the critical stuff is mounted to the circuit board. With this one, I just copied the layout from the original to the brass sheet, pulled the speaker, the speaker wiring, the circuit board, and the transformer, and remounted in its new home. Everything else was way more time consuming.
