Title: Getting there, workshop overhaul!
Post by: GrindCustoms on February 10, 2018, 09:09:35 AM
Yoski!

Well... in order to be able to build, test or simply have electronic fun, i had to to do a massive makeover/overhaul of my "shop".... ...making like 6 months that i was telling to Pickdropper that i had to do it... lol

Was a freaking mess in there, had become a chaotic storage room... ..still have LOADS of part, fail and other random stuff to sort... ...but it's getting there...!

I'm still trying to find mine.  Can we have a contest for worst "before" pic?  :P

Mine isn't in a terrible state, but I would like to clean it up a bit before I photograph it.

I remember this one time I cleaned up my work station. Good times, good times. I looked at the desk and said, "Gosh, such a clean workspace!" It was a pleasure to work on for the 5 minutes that it stayed clean.  ;D

I populated 4 PCBs this week. I find myself dangerously close to actually building some pedals...

Now I want to see what kind of pedal one can make with an electronic throttle body...

Well.. they are "Drive by Wire" TBs.... and once hooked up and powered they offer quite a wide range of sounds, depending of how much input is given... ...it can be really loud!  ;D

You should have most of the new PCBs kicking around somewhere. I'm fairly certain we sent you at least one of each at some point.

I foresee some "audio work" in a very near future! Everything is coming along really nice, getting quite excited about it... ...have some really cool projects on the table, hopefully they'll turn out as good as i visualise them! :)
