Re: High B+ in homebrew
You should be alright with that tranny.....after you get your other components in and your power tubes start drawing current, your voltage will drop quite a bit. You can also experiment with a few different rectifier tubes to get lower voltages. If your voltage is too still too high, get a reversed bias 50watt 50volt Zener Diode and the voltage will drop down about another 50volts or so.
