Open Discussion / Re: Jig to hold enclosure while drilling?
« on: September 08, 2018, 07:17:09 PM »

This is what i use with my drill press but would be plenty fine for hand drilling. I use a 3/32 bit to drill all pilot holes then a step bit from there.

Oh nice! This was exactly what I was looking for. Good tip on the paint sticks too.

Regular drill bit only for  pilot holes, then step drill bit. No need for a clamps or a vise.


This is how I do currently drill, but going from pilot hole up the 0.5Ē hole for power jack on the top edge of an enclosure always seems to be the start of a YouTube video of someone getting hurt. Something about a drill spinning towards my hand on a slanted unstable enclosure seems like a poor idea.

Looking for advice on how to hold an enclosure down while hand drilling.

Iím tired of banging up the enclosure, scrapping the paint, banging knuckles on spinning enclosures. I have a few C clamps but I use a plastic folding table and it isnít really cutting it, especially when drilling holes on the sides.

Is there any jig that can do these things? Thanks!

Migraines.  Debilitating pain to the point i can have trouble walking. 

I know a migraine is coming because when i go to bed and the lights are out i hear voices etc.  Scares the !@#$ out of me sometimes...

Also nightmares...really vivid and sometimes horrific imagery.

I've found recently i have to pretty much force myself to go to bed early (for some reason i dont get symptoms of tiredness so i never know).  Also powdered magnesium seems to be helping the situation as well.

That's only part of the fun living with migraines, i could fill a page with some of the crap i've had to live with the last 15 years and the lengths i have gone to to stop them :( 

Anyway, there are worse things in life so i will take this card im dealt. And things haven't been too bad lately with the recent changes ive made so im pretty happy with them at the moment.

Iím sorry you have to go through all that. If youíre finding magnesium helpful, you may find some relief in CBD oil if you havenít tried it yet.

When I get really tired over the course of a few days I get "earworms". Sometimes it's music playing over and over or short language phrases. When I was in college I had Coltrane's version of " My Favorite Things" playing in the old bean brain for almost a months

I had realized I do this too a couple years ago, but I think I had been doing it for longer than I can remember before I realized it. Never really tried to put a name to it or think too much about it, but itís good (or is it?) to see im not alone! Did you coin the word ear worm? The thought of a worm in my ear is horrifying, but itís pretty clever!

Lots of interesting bits in there! Harmonic mix???

The trimming of the highs and lows also sounds like it would be fun

Very, very nice. I was wondering if anybody made a pcb for the PolyChorus. I'll have to take a look at what Lectric-fx has to offer these days!

You will not be disappointed

How Do I? Beginner's Paradise. / Re: How do I combine these circuits?
« on: August 12, 2018, 04:40:17 PM »
Without getting to wild, youíd need a DPDT switch for each switch (the bottom circuit already has one). On the unused portion of the switch, youíd wire the LED.

9V (battery or adapter) > resistor (2k2 to 47k, whatever gets you the brightness you want (higher values for ultra brights)) > anode of LED. Cathode of LED to the outside lug of the unused potion of the switch, ground to the middle.

Depending on if you want the LED to light up when you are silenced or not silenced, youíd need to wire the cathode of the LED to either outside lug.

Cool. Good to know. I guess no one ever builds the 18v lol.

Guess not! The power boost version didnít work at 9V either. Sort of surprised the project was around for 3 years without anyone building it.

Mistake was on the build doc. Aion has since fixed the mistake.

Brian is a regular guy just like us. Super nice dude, and very friendly. He lives in TN, so you must be close by.

Los Angeles! Not too close. USPS must have been on their A game as well

General Questions / Beginning My First Madbean Builds!
« on: August 08, 2018, 09:24:45 PM »
Hard to believe I signed up for this forum in 2015 and never bought a PCB from the shop. I got an Aquaboy PCB second hand to build back in 2015, but nothing from Madbean himself. Ordered a Harbinger One and a 4:1 Compressor on Monday and they were in my mailbox today, Wednesday. That is totally absurd. Fastest shipping? And best yet, they were in THE SAME SANDWICH BAGS I use for my sandwiches.

Iíve never played a compressor, but this one seemed like a good jack of all trades comp to try out. I have a shin-ei univibe somewhere in storage, but itís huge, is a pain, and I donít really want it sitting around, so I wanted to build the Harbinger as well. Going to do an 18V adapter on the Harbinger with the smaller bulb from SB. Unsure how Iím going to light shield yet.

Will update the thread as I go along! Iím very excited. Iím thinking of finishing the pedals in ďBook of the New SunĒ theme.

Thanks Brian!

For posterity - intripped over on DIYSB went through the build doc and found there was a mistake. R6 should be *omitted* and not jump'd. Boosting my amp to the high heavens now.

You could do a couple of Filtertrons  or Fender Widerange pickups. Or do something you don't see as much and get a couple of Mosrite style pickups. I believe you can buy some from Hallmark guitars.

Any of these + a tort pickguard gets my vote
