I'm working on one right now. I bought parts awhile ago but have been sidetracked by amp projects. It looks pretty cool. I'm anxious to get it going. I'm drilling holes in the chassis tonight. I'll try to post some comments on it after I complete it.

Patrick: I'd love to hear your experiences on this project. The more I digest the schematic the easier it looks (sound familiar?). I think I might use one 8ohm 100w resistor instead of the switching network in the schematic. I think the standby amp would be fine since it would be idleing with no input.
ps. I read where Sonny Landreth uses a Palmer E-Frog switcher for his Matchless and Dumble amps. I went to their site. The whole switching shebang is over $400. I think I'll start drilling a chassis too!

I'm building one right now as well. I have all the parts and mounted most of them in my project box and have etched a couple of boards for the relays to make hookups easier/stronger, so I should be able to finish it up this weekend at the latest. I actually logged on here to see if I could find a thread about it and, hopefully, some comments from someone who has built one. I think it'll work very well, but I'll know more in a few days.
Also, Randall's a great guy who will answer any questions you might have.

I finished mine up and tested it out, so I thought I'd throw a quick site up with some pics and text. Go here: http://home.mindspring.com/~idyll/headswitcher.htm
