    I know of two people who have original Claymore's in their original form. Both working perfectly. The copy above looks total shite my comparison. I would love one of those Mk2's like.

    Just to add to the story,

    My wife Jenny and I was married just 2 weeks and were coming back from Honeymoon we had a great time in Lynmouth Devon. (it still hold a special place in my heart).
    On the way back she crashed the car on the M5 she was killed. Me I had burns and few broken bones.
    The few month after shitty event I was still in shock and to be honest I had no clue what the hell I was doing.And often drunk and I fell of a balcony into our garden in at Leigh On Sea, breaking me arm again.
    In that period I had designed lots of things according to my records.
    One was a new Claymore the artwork for the tracking was drawn by a sub contractor and I forgot all about it. It seems this contractor passed the PCB layout to Bensley, but the art work text was not changed.
    Near the reservoir capacitors in small writing on the silk screen it says " Design by C.J.Wonfor for Jenny" and the date is the date she died 20th May 1990.

    So in a funny way these amps are special. Even if I never made them they are special because they memorialise Jenny.


    Here is Jenny with Scot and Penny my kids just a few day before she died,

    That's a hell of a story Colin. No wonder these amps are special to you. Kudos to you for even being able to function after such a monumental blow, i'm certain I wouldn't have been any use to anyone for at least a year.
