from Dave Perkins

First a request, for a restoration I’m working on, I need a 5″ (round) speaker that has field coil / power supply choke with a DC resistance in the 1500 – 1800 ohm range. If you have one to spare please bring it to the meeting or contact me at spamhole1951@gmail.com. I’ll gladly pay for it or (even better) let’s barter. If you need something (yeah, I know we could ALL use a winning PowerBall ticket – sorry) ask ME! I just might have it and we can work out a deal.
