That would be Don Merz, I bought the 8/F front panel from him :-)

As for the power supply it depends on the vintage. If its the linear supply
(on 8/M's and 8/F's that would be before about 73 then you just have to
watch the caps. If its the switcher (mounted in the rear of the cabinet
with a panel that says "Don't operate for more than 15 minutes with the
cover removed" then the big danger is the switching transistors.
