Progress: New lab, base pcb almost finished & panel arrival
My electronics "lab" has now been moved out of the laundry room and minimally set up in another nook in the basement. Still yet to see if the landlord approves... :ahappy:
I got it set up in time to put a couple hours of work on the base PCB. I had picked up some 1K resistors at Radio Shack to replace the ones I destroyed. I picked up 1/2 watt resistors, thinking that was the right rating. However, bringing them home, I see they are much bigger than my original resistors were. I'm assuming that if the originals were 1/4 watt, it's no big deal to use 1/2 watt ones, as long as the resistance is the same, correct? :question:
They look kinda big and old school on the board. I like. Now I've just got to get the machined pin socket strips for the filter capacitors, and I'll be ready to put in the ICs and test!
My obnoxious front and back panels came in! :drool: I plopped my logo on the LED grid, as well as other customizations you can see. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with the back panel pots yet, though I'll probably go with the feedback pots. That being the case, I just put a big BLAT on it in case I change my mind once I get to that point. I also put the larger hole for the 1/4" jack for the mix out.
and finally, a shot of the new lab...
And there you have it, there it is. I'll keep ye posted, whether you like it or not. :wink:
