Global Annoucements / Re: Big Release Day! Free Donuts!

Let's make that Monday for the UT video. In the process of trying to remove the bad tube I destroyed several pads on the main board and it's not repairable. So, I'm building up a new board tomorrow. So, that happened. RIP OG UberTuber.

But, while I'm at it I'm going to test the rest of the tubes I got this weekend so yay me.

This is a thing that exists in the universe.

Brian, is your search button down? I had an old do's and don'ts of Envirotex that I was going to cull out. There are not pics and videos but it surely has some pit falls that could help anyone trying to use this type of epoxy, assuming anyone really uses it still. I've been out of the loop a bit.

I'll work on it this weekend.

Thanks guys. I'll start work on collating next week.

I do plan to do a video series this fall on the complete process from idea to layout to prototype. It'll be for Eagle 7.7 though. Already paid $500 for that license so I sure ain't renting it from Autodesk.

XVIVE should probably make a repro of the MN3101 since they are already doing the MN3005. I guess the demand is smaller for it, though. I'm sure EHX is a big customer and the DMM doesn't use the MN3101.

If you want more of that problem, keep offering surprises like the free donut board.

The plan is to offer a free (small) PCB with every release batch for the rest of the year. I've got a few planned out and I'm pretty sure I know what the next one will be.

Some of the ones I'm thinking about are an all-in-one buffered bypass, a JFET tester, a germanium transistor tester and a panel of 9mm boards for when you need to wire those little pots.

Hi,

I was wondering which 6111 tube supplier(s) you had the best luck with on the tubes. I know duds happen, so not trying to single out the one that had the bad one.

Thanks

I had a lot of luck with eBay actually. I bought a smattering of sub-mini back in 2011 and so far every single one has worked. I'm quite sure the smallbear one will be reliable. I won't be able to check on the new supply I bought until this weekend, though.

Also, I missed the Monday deadline for the UberTuber demo. I've actually been working through a lot of orders (a good problem to have). But, I plan on getting it together tomorrow. It will be out by Friday at the latest, I think.

You totally rule for doing that!

You should be able to just switch out one end of each photocell so an SPDT is only required. The dual LED isn't needed unless I am misunderstanding...the foot becomes the light source.

I thought Aisha wanted this to be toggled via footswitch, so I just added a bicolour led to show which mode it was in.

Ah! I missed that. Sorry  :-[

Very cool! But, change that "a" to an "r" in overload.

« on: August 13, 2018, 08:10:55 AM »
I don't think top mounted would work on a 125B. Or, at least you'd have to push the placement of the circuit board pretty far down so that the jacks can clear. I don't have time today but I could take a look at it and see if it's possible.

That's great Paul, I'll be sure to include these. I think for submitted videos I will link to youTube rather than embed in the page with the player. My thought is most people will be viewing on mobile anyway which means the app will launch and embedded videos can take a while to pre-load. Thanks for throwing these in.

2 words. Gorilla Glue.

My gorilla, Mr. Drummond, actually ran away a few months ago.
You must be devastated right about now. Can you describe him?

About 4.5" tall. Silver fur. Kinda muscular. Last seen with his long-time companion near the Denver area.
