Fan vibration reducer
This is mounted behind the fan to reduce possible vibration. I don't think it's needed as it is very quiet compared to the axial blower.

The assembled triode control card. I only made one mistake in assembly and that was to mix up the three large white resistors on the left-hand side.
Other than that, it worked first time after assembly! I was most impressed and I'm glad I bought the kit not attempted to buy the components individually.
