Still waiting to get the Road Rage boards stocked?
I have an idea for a handful of those so I've been watching.  ;)

Very tidy in there!
How do you like using the MLCC caps in place of the more typical box-film type?
I've been considering doing the same but haven't tried yet. Still just have a bunch of the usual smaller values....

Been digging this idea for a while now. Just pulled the trigger yesterday on a 1/2 height rack with 12 sheets (not sure why they include 12 when it will only hold 10) and a clear plastic cover. Hopefully shipping doesn't take too long, I'm really trying to organize my space better to help workflow. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yeah, definitely the same thing as the 999. Iím guessing itís pretty close to the 909 which I did find a schematic for. Just wanna make sure Iíve got the right one in case there are more than a couple basic tweaks.

Anybody know where I can find a schematic for the old Roto Tone 1 from Maxon?
The closest thing I could dig up was the 909 but thatís not quite the same.

Build Reports / Re: Sailor Moon set of 1590G projects

Out of curiosity,  is the sawse using one of the new re-issue vactrols?

Yeah, I ordered a few from Small Bear. Seems to work okay but the effect isn't quite as pronounced as I had expected. I'll probably socket the next one a lot and try messing around with some other component values too.

Build Reports / Sailor Moon set of 1590G projects
« on: August 10, 2019, 12:39:37 AM »
Inspired by my daughter's love of Sailor Moon, we've just finished a set of all ten 1590G projects including the discontinued Sawse. We built them in 1590B enclosures though. Definitely easier to work with and still a good fit for the control layouts.
I had the idea right after Brian released the "G" projects but we just finally got around to finishing them.
We're going to be debuting them at a local gamer/anime/comic con her in Jackson, MI on August 24th. We'll have a table set up in the Vendor's hall with some other game/anime inspired builds.
Just need to finish making up some cables and getting everything wired up!

Open Discussion / Easier ordering 1/8W resistors from Tayda
« on: July 09, 2019, 05:45:19 AM »
There are a bunch of things I donít mind ordering from Tayda. Iíve never had any problems with their resistors and ordering the 1/4W metal films is super simple with their ďeasy orderingĒ page. Iíve started having a couple of PCBs made recently that are laid out for 1/8W resistors and thought ďsure would be nice if they had that option for those tooĒ.
So I sent them a message via Facebook. They responded pretty fast and it looks like itíll be happening soon!

General Questions / Re: Source for scored ribbon cable?
« on: June 16, 2019, 08:55:25 AM »
Mouser is out of the six conductor which is what I was using. They do have some eight conductor stuff as well. It works for me perfectly (better than the six actually) because I can trim off two wires and use them from the DC jack to the board and still have the six conductors left to go from the main board to my bypass boards.

I want to try ordering some printed enclosures but haven't done it before. Can anyone share their process for getting graphics onto their templates and submitted for printing? I'll probably try messing with it tonight a little bit.
I do all of my graphics in Inkscape and have been printing decals on my own. I just want to make sure I'm getting it right before I spend a lot of money in trial and error.
Mammoth has a minimum order of 10 pieces to get the price break on the setup fees, PPP is 20......
PPP has far more options for powder coat colors. Mammoth will do custom colors but.....
Anyway, pros/cons to both and any tips on successfully submitting print templates would be greatly appreciated!

I really want to try this stuff and I've ordered it twice from Amazon, both times it showed up without the glue....
The listing I'm ordering from clearly states that it comes with the glue.....
Not sure if it's worth fighting with them over. Is there somewhere I can order just the glue? Or is there something else that would work just as well?

« on: February 23, 2019, 06:56:50 PM »
Yeah, $4 isn't too bad for just one. But there's not much of a price break for higher quantities and I definitely need more than one.....
I'll have a look at Arrow!

I started trying to filter through some toggles on Mouser last night. Iím pretty sure I found some things that would work but, at $4 each.
I was hoping someone might have another suggestion......

General Questions / Non-Threaded toggle switches
« on: February 23, 2019, 02:42:48 AM »
I've got a couple of boards that have pretty tight control layouts. I was thinking of using the toggles that have smooth shafts/bushings and don't use any nuts/washers. Kind of like what you might find on a lot of Electro Harmonix and other pedals. I'd like to save as much room as possible for labeling the controls without having to move the lettering too far away from the switch.
Does anyone know where I can find some of these that would work as direct replacements for the typical threaded shaft switches that everyone stocks?
I suppose I could just use the regular ones and leave off the nut and washer but that would look a bit...... unresolved.
Thanks!
