I haven't had time to track down all the amendments made to the original
electronics-lab project (which, AYK, is the Quasar kit above), but the
base complaint is that the 24VAC of the transformer is way too high, and
particularly so for the op-amps and the SOAR of the single 2N3055

I've written to Silicon Chip, mentioning the dearth of public domain *good*
bench supply schematics, and suggested they might consider a PSU linear
or SMPS project or tutorial. The last they did was way back in 2000, a
1.23V - 40V @ 1.2A switchmode
