Title: Glass Hole
Post by: Bio77 on September 11, 2020, 01:27:58 PM
Finally got something finished up this week! I've been neglecting my parts ordering, recently, and as a result I have a bunch of projects on my bench waiting for one or two missing parts.  This one was extra frustrating because I didn't have enough 6.8n caps, accidentally ordered 68n caps, next ordered the wrong 6.8n caps.  FKP (Polypropylene) Wima caps are about twice as thick as the regular MKS.  Managed to wedge them in there, though.

I'm still dialing in the trimmers, but I want to post a demo after I get the Tappy built up.  I might have to move the Tappy wires, not sure having them running over the output jack was the best choice.

Edit 1/3/21:  I updated the photos after the fix with a jumper between R46 and D9.  The trimmers were not the problem  :P

Dude, that is awesome, I love the graphics and what you did with the stages knob. Clean build and that is such a funny movie!

That looks awesome!  Both inside and out- I'll look forward to hearing your demo.

That is great. You actually made the graphic look like something from the 50's not the 90's, very fitting. The bubbled font on the Stage Selector is awesome.

And I have to say, that is some tidy wiring. Nicely done

Thanks guys!

Your post earlier about the 9203s made me think I better get this up before you post another killer build. ;D

Hey Dawson, glad to see you around these parts again.

The 50-60s vibe was why I leaned toward this graphic when I found it.  I already did a Mars Attacks phaser a few years ago, but this just kept seeming right.  The knob was a pain, I did a no-film waterslide then taped it and did a layer of Enviotex.  That's version 3   ::)

Thanks guys! 

Don't be jealous Jimmy, build it!  You've got to have room for one more phaser.

I'll get a demo after I build the Tappy, I'm super excited to hear Tappy weirdness.

He probably already has and he's just reached the point where there's no more phasers to build so he just doesn't want anyone else to have phasers ;)
