LEDs for DigDug build
« on: December 19, 2017, 08:36:45 AM »
Is there any reason to not use 5mm LEDs for the DigDug2 build? Will the holes be too close? Is it a concern considering the height of the LEDs?

Just wondering because I have a ton of 5mm LEDs on hand and only a few mixed colors of 3mm. 

Regardless, I should use the same color and manufacturer because the FV of the LED affects the CD4017, correct?

Oh, I see.  It's clearance with the 9mm pots.  Shoot!  I hate to make such a small order.

Hey, thanks. I found a few other things for other projects and placed a Tayda order.
Much appreciated though. You're a good fellow.
