I snagged one of Simon’s surprisingly reasonably-priced FX-30 drivers , and since I have this as a backup in case of failure, I’m interested in trying a mod to bump up the amperage a bit on my L6. I remember reading that a few people have stacked another resistor (~R140) on top of the existing resistors on this FX-30 driver, in order to slightly increase total output. I’ve done a little bit of soldering and a few driver or emitter swaps, but I’ve never done a mod like this involving a single component or resistor. Before I start soldering, I wanted to double check that I’m putting the new resistor in exactly the right spot. Does my added R120 (drawn into the picture below) look correct, stacked approximately centered on top of the existing R082 resistors? Green color = intended solder placement.
Any other advice before I start?
Alternatively, if anyone has a picture or video of a similar mod they’ve completed, that would be very helpful!
