The reading is correct assuming the right test points are as per the manual.

I assume you meen L2 should be the smallest (33uh) L1 is not installed.

Measured a bit more following the diagram which is definatly not my field of expertise.

On D1 the side described in the manual as cathode side is towards centre of the board, this side have 0.000V, but reading the datasheet of D1 it say that the ring denotes the cathode, meaning the cathode side would be AWAY from centre. This side measures 0.6V. Cheching some other places, i see that C2 have the full 9V on one side, and 0.6V on the other side.

Just to ask a stupid question: the entire board is DC?

Yes, everything is DC.

Yes, sorry, L2. I was mixing up D1 and L2 to get L1, which is wrong.

When we get to the HV circuit, then we have L1, which is the bigger one.

Let's stick to measuring at the test points, as long as you are getting 5V at the "VCC" testpoint, we're looking OK.

If you imaging the "bar" on the front of the triangle as the white stripe, that might help. That's the cathode.

Yes, i have 5V at VCC. Are you saying i should continue to the HV part of the build, or should i measure something else first?

Sorry for the noob questions, i am a pipefitter...
Also i think some of my posts might seam unpolite, that is not the intention, english is not my native language.

Another thing, the LED's on the tube boards, are they supposed to be push-fit and flush with the board on both sides?

Yes, I think we can go on. The next part of the build is the most tricky part, so please ask if there are any questions. We all start somewhere.

Not impolite at all, don't worry... :)
