Has anyone replaced a ducksan with a brand new wells gardner crt on a rfm? I have the old crt out and find the bracketing to mount the new crt chassis does not line up with any two holes. I'm thinking of doing away with this bracket with a think perspex plate that in turn will mount on a solid metal plate that adds stability to the main crt bracketing.
this is the original bracket that you mount the chassis to, pic 2
The next pic is of the stabilizing plate that the mounting bracket attaches to on the other side.
This is the other side of the plate. I actually have attached a sheet of perspex to it in this pic but haven't modified it yet to install plastic pcb standoffs
my question is, is there a better solution or can you see problems with the perspex idea, like heat/melting problems.
