Open Discussion / Whetstone kits

I posted about these after buying a couple for myself the other day....
The seller listed more of these. Looks like the price went up $10 from the previous listing but still not too bad if you're interested in having one.

Open Discussion / Blackout Effectors Cadavernous Reverberator V2
« on: February 10, 2021, 06:30:46 AM »
Well, I have no idea what's under the hood on this one but I'll be finding out soon. I finally decided to pull the trigger on one so I can see what's going on in there. I'm hoping to be able to trace the circuit and see if it's something that would be (or could be made) DIY friendly.
I'll post some updates here once I have a chance to look it over a little bit...........

Open Discussion / Blackout Effectors related info & question.....
« on: February 07, 2021, 12:42:21 PM »
So for the info part, I just found this listing on eBay:

I know there are a couple of DIY projects/boards available for this one but I couldn't resist as I've always wanted one, just never pulled the trigger.
I figured one or two of you all might be interested as well....

For the question part, does anyone have any info, schematics, references, etc to their Cadavernous Reverberator V2 (or the original, but preferrably the V2)?
It's a reverb I've looked at a bunch of times but never bought either.
Being that they're out of business now, those are getting very hard to find good deals on too.....

Build Reports / Pedal PCB Parenthesis (EQD Life)
« on: January 29, 2021, 01:21:31 PM »
Finished this one up and sent it out earlier this week. It was a custom request from a friend of a friend.
He had the basic idea for the graphic so we worked it all out and I ordered the enclosure from Tayda using their UV printing service.
I forgot to round off the bottom corners but overall I think it turned out pretty great.
I was more concerned with giving the UV printing a try but this thing sounds amazingly huge and crushing. Definitely dooms pretty hard!

Build Reports / Puzzle Box Charge Pump
« on: January 19, 2021, 11:27:04 PM »
I did a few of these a while back using the Road Rage boards but never posted anything for them. I did all three faces of the puzzle box from the Hellraiser movies (but this one is my favorite). I printed the stickers and put them on plain black tins a little smaller than the ubiquitous Altoids tins and the like. I figured it might be useful on a pedalboard if you wanted to run a drive, dirt, etc at 18v but didn't already have a supply that provided for it.

Open Discussion / Tayda UV Printing without using Adobe Illustrator?
« on: January 04, 2021, 02:32:44 PM »
i Don't have AI and am not really interested in getting it. I'm not a fan of the subscription based structure at all.
If I were using it a lot more than as the occasional hobbyist it might be worth it but I'm afraid that's just not the case for me.
So my question is, has anyone used their UV printing services and uploaded filed from other than AI software?
More specifically, has anyone used graphics created in Inkscape?
Any tips, tricks or pointers?

Just poking around and saw this listing. They probably won't last long either.

Open Discussion / Recommendations for a new laser printer....?
« on: June 10, 2020, 07:32:09 AM »
So I have a fairly decent Brother printer now but Iím looking for a replacement.
Iím looking for something thatíll make nice water slide decals. The Brother works well most of the time but every now and then (especially when trying to print something with a lot of coverage) itíll stream and smear really bad. Iíve messed with the settings as much as I can but still have the occasional wasted sheet or two of decal paper.
Another issue is, Brother doesnít have drivers to support Google Chrome OS. I recently got my wife a Chromebook and would like something easier to use. There are options to connect the printer to a network and use Google cloud printing but.....
Why not just kill two birds right?
So, color laser printer recommendations based on good personal experience printing water slide decals. And it should support Chrome.......
Any ideas?

Open Discussion / V-Scoring in KiCAD....?
« on: May 28, 2020, 04:08:08 AM »
Does anyone have any helpful tips on how to indicate V-Scoring using KiCAD?
Or any other method for making a panel of smaller boards, like using the little break-away tabs with the little holes drilled in them?
I tried a quick Google search but didn't see anything right away. I'm sure I can go waaaay down the rabbit hole of reading really old posts and watching a bunch of videos until I find what I'm looking for. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction a little faster........
Maybe some of it will depend on the fab house too..? I've only ordered a couple of boards so far and I've used JLCPCB with pretty good results. But I'm willing to try others!

Open Discussion / KiCad 3PDT schematic symbol.....?
« on: May 02, 2020, 09:57:16 AM »
This isn't specifically an Eagle question so I'm not putting it there..... (hope that's okay)
Not sure if I'm missing something but I can't find the schematic symbol for a 3PDT switch. I have the Madbean libraries loaded for the component footprints but those are separate things. I can't seem to find a generic schematic symbol......
Can anyone help me out here? Seems like it should be a common enough part that I shouldn't have to create a new symbol to add to the library.

Build Reports / OD-1
« on: March 28, 2020, 03:01:58 AM »
Built this one a little while ago for a guy who really wanted another without having to pay through the teeth for an original Boss.
I used the Corona PCB from Aion. There was a spot added to the board for a small ceramic cap in the feedback loop with the clipping diodes. The original OD-1 didn't have it and I wanted to have as many options as possible. I put the cap on a small piece of strip board with a 2-position DIP switch. Everything can be set to dead stock or the toggles and internal switches can be used for other options.

Build Reports / Moszilla

Finished these up a little while ago. Used the Quantum (Ibanez MT-10 Mostortion) boards from Aion.
The one without the clipping selector toggle was a request from a buddy who wanted one true to the original.
I tweaked the graphic and built another with the clipping selector.
It's a pretty cool sounding distortion and I really like the EQ section in this one!

Open Discussion / Hawk Electronics Inc.
« on: February 26, 2020, 08:07:58 PM »
Anybody ordered anything from them?
I found their site while searching for some aluminum enclosures. I've got everything I need to do the Epic Looper w/7 segment LED display. I ordered all the parts a few years ago but haven't gotten around to building it yet. Well, it's about damn time!
I wanted to use something a little bigger than the recommended 1032L enclosure so I can stuff a few extras in there.
This Hawk place has some really good prices (compared to Mouser) on these Hammond chassis boxes!
They have tons of stuff on their site. Not sure how much of it would apply to our typical needs/uses. I think I'll spend a little more time digging through their inventory to see if I can find any other gems....

Open Discussion / Tayda temporarily offering UV printing....
« on: February 20, 2020, 12:36:50 AM »
I just placed an order for some of the random stuff I do trust from Tayda and noticed this in their "enclosures" category.
Looks like the offer expires on Feb 26th so I guess they're just testing the waters...? I'd be interested to see how their printing works out. Maybe I'll mock up a simple graphic and submit another order just to see how they look.
I also noticed they're offering custom drilling now too. Anybody had any experience with that? I typically don't mind doing my own drilling. I've always had pretty good results with a center punch, a step bit and a little patience. On a few occasions I've done multiples of the same build and spent literally hours on just the drilling. Would be nice to save some time and cramped hands!

Open Discussion / Maxon 863 schematic?
« on: August 22, 2019, 08:01:41 PM »
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.
