Dumble ODS...things that make you go hmmmm

Dumble ODS...things that make you go hmmmm
I don't know why but this just up and hit me about an hour ago. Take a look at the pic below. It's the eyelet board from a Bassman 50 that I yanked out of one of my junk boxes. If you look closely you'll notice that the entire preamp including the skyliner eq section is here short of the grid stoppers. If you wanted to get marginally creative you could probably stuff half the deep/jazz switches in the extra space as well. Drill a few holes to mount the trimmer pots on a piece of board next to the bias and voila! It fits almost too perfectly. Like I said....things that make you go hmmmm!  
Guess what I'm doing tomorrow? :o)  
Here's the pic. I hope the html tag works. Sorry for the picture quality. I know it's not too hot.

Have a good weekend ya'all.

Here's a working drawing of my Bassman 50 being rebuilt as a Peavy Deuce (great little amp!):

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.
