He was a character. I very distinctly remember dealing with him from
Ameritron when it was in Ohio. No matter what advice I gave, he did what he
wanted. Despite warnings, because he could get big meter pinning power, he
intentionally ran excessively high voltage by using the wrong transformer
taps. I finally cancelled his warranty.
He would often have the cover off, and interlock defeated, while messing
around inside the amp. This was with HV running up around 4000 volts. I
figured the poking around with the cover off would eventually get him.
