Damn! You got me twice in the same day. That's it, no more impulse posts for me!

posts for me!"
Sometimes those are the best ones, though, before you think twice, and say "...nah"  
I cringe at half the posts I make --better than hitting 300 in the majors, though :)  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

mike, you might want to get a 25 watt iron.  
not that you can't do the job with a bigger one,  
but the smaller one is more suitable for  
transiostors and suchlike.  
if the leads are clean, iron hot etc, the joint should form in a couple of seconds... if it takes  
longer you're in danger of cooking something.  
hope that's helpful,
