ekubota wrote:2. I had some questions about the power transformer and related parts. For F1 should I get a fuse rated for 1.5A, 250V? Also, the connection chart says SW1's pin 3 should go to the "other side of the primary, as the neon bulb
is parallel to the primary winding." What does this mean? Can I just use a regular SPST toggle switch with two terminals and connect it between the CL-90 and one side of the primary?

Use a star ground or buss bar or ground wire for the system ground that is separate from the chassis. As the end, connect it to the chassis with one wire.

And the green lead of the power cord (that goes to the ground pin) should be connected to the chassis at the same point, right?
