RE: [TCML] gold secondary

thanks for that guys 

im glad its not so hard to get!

i doubt it will cost as much as the rest of the plating i have to do 

i plan to brush plate in the best colour that matches the secondary after it has been varnished 

things that will be plated are simply all metalic parts including component legs 

not so sure about the toroid  though i did say i was going to use a gas filled glass toroid 

seems i no longer need to do this as on youtube there is a glass toroid been gold leafed on the inside and it works 

the effect is quite stunningly beautiful


my only concern is the glass may break at higher power levels

does anyone have any input concerning this or even is the person who made that video on this list

thanks guys for your help
