A few years ago I had some AP3 boards to give away.  Now I have some more if anyone wants them; these will be the last of them.  I made an AP3 clone which I never used, so these are those boards.  I also have a 45-0, 45-0 volt 500VA toroidal transformer, but I am selling that.  The boards are free if they are wanted.  They all worked last time I tried them, but I have dismantled the amp as I need to clear some space. I'm pretty sure these are the Stan Curtis ones.

Hi 
I would very much like the fan.
I missed out last time but hopefully second time lucky.
I could receive either in the US or UK if I am indeed the lucky one.
Cheers
Nick

Hi I’d love the boards if they are still available!

 

I have been trying to find pics online of the reverse of the boards recently, but not had any luck – I was hoping at some time to have a go at making a clone but in a normal case.

 

Cheers,

Colin

Hi !
I have a AP3 mk2 that is missing one board only. I sent one board for repair to the uk back in the end of the nineteen nineteeth but I never got it back.
If I remember right to a shop called the emporium.
I have another AP3 mk2 which is fully working but it would be great to be able to get the dismantled one into full function again.
Thanks for your offer !
Greetings from Sweden

I posted this reply yesterday, but it didn't seem to work. 
I want to send everything to one UK address, and then the recipient can deal with anyone else who wants different bits.  Whoever gives me a UK address can have it.
And I took a photo of the backs.

Hi there

 

I’m willing to take in the boards to a UK address & send them on.  I want to keep one AP3 board for a time as I’d like to relay it for those who want to build new boards.  Contact me & I’ll send you my address.

Actually this is one of my boards – note the initials SC on the reverse

 

Best wishes

Stan

What I want to do is send everything to one person in the UK, who can then sort out who gets what.  If someone, anyone, gives me their UK address I will post them.  I just don't want them going in the bin..Oh, and ignore the Stan Curtis bit;  I was probably thinking of the Cambridge P50!  

Here is a photo of the backs for the interested party.

Agreed.
That works for me too for the fan 

Actually, Stan I might ask Paul H, if he would be willing to hold onto the fan for me until I’m next in the UK.
If he agrees would be ok sending it to him?
Thanks
Nick

Posted to Stan.  Only 2nd class, so it will take a few days.

Yes, thank you very much for doing this Awkwardbydesign – hopefully with Stan’s work on the board it will be possible for others to clone the AP3.

I have had my AP1 over 30 years now, and would love an AP3 :)

 

Cheers,

Colin

I don't know what's happening, as my posts don't seem to make it, but I posted these to Stan last week.

If people are cloning the AP3, in a different case, I have this.  Too big for the original tube, but it would work in a bigger case.

Hi All

 

Despite some email problems & miscommunications the boards have reached me.  Thanks Awkward

 

I want to keep one of the AP3 boards with a view to cloning the design.

 

The others are available to those who posted the first request.  Get in touch with me at

 

ma...@stancurtis.com

 

The second AP3 board will be available in about 3 months time to whoever was number two on the “Yes Please” list

Hi Stan,
Given all the communication problems.
Did you receive the AP3 fan from Awkward'?
Thanks,
Nick
