When I was in Jr. High School I built a CW transmitter using a 6AG7 
crystal controlled oscillator and an 807 for the final.  The 
interesting part was that I did not use a chassis.  I simple 
connected all the parts together, power supply and all, in sort of a 
heap on my work bench.  (I'm sure it would've kept transmitting 
somewhere had I pulled the crystal out of it's socket.)  It worked 
and I made several contacts.  AND I saved money by not buying a 
chassis.  Sometimes I wonder how I've managed to live long enough to 
become this ancient.
