I have a short phrase that I need translated. I added a period in the translator on google and the words changed. So I'm weary of using that answer. It's going to be a permanent thing (not a tattoo :P) so I want t be 100% sure it's correct.

It's a bit of a controversial/possibly offensive phrase, so just PM me and I'll let you know.

Open Discussion / I just acquired an airbag. What to do?
« on: August 10, 2014, 03:16:26 PM »
I was out at a junkyard getting a new front end for my truck, and I got talking to the guy out there with me. He was surprised that I have never ''touched off an airbag''. So he found a truck with one still intact and gave it to me.

My question is what should I do with it?  I don't want to do anything dangerous to people. I'm just trying to think of something fun to do with it.

Open Discussion / Bi-color LED clipper.
« on: April 18, 2014, 11:42:35 PM »
Has anyone ever used a bi-color led for clipping? I have one that I'm thinking about trying in a circuit.

I asked at DIYSB and instantly got a useless answer from one of the 'elite' members  ::)

Audio/Video Demos / Current Lover

After a few hiccups and setbacks, I have finished my first toner transfer etch on a Current Lover.  :)

I built up a current lover board and it's only putting out a clean signal, no flanging whatsoever.
Tinkering around I found that a wall wart will make the zener diode heat up, but with a fresh battery it's fine. I changed out the diode just to be on the safe side. Then I went through checking pinouts, polarity, and several cap and resistor values, but no love.

Build Reports / Granny's Klon (Sunking)
« on: March 17, 2014, 10:19:13 PM »
About a month ago I was blown away when my grandma asked me to make her a klon. Finally the last parts came in the mail today. So I threw it together and snapped these pictures. I'll film a video of her playing it when I take it to her. It feels weird to spend so much time on a pedal I'm making for free. ;D

It was laser etched, but the contrast of the aluminum and the gold vein powdercoat made it impossible to read. I used a technique a gunsmith taught me. I warmed up the enclosure and rubbed a white crayon in the etch, then buffed the excess away.

Open Discussion / Tips or help with a graphic.
« on: March 16, 2014, 10:50:28 AM »
Lately I have been trying to learn how to use inkscape. I have learned a ton in the last few days such as how to use trace bitmap and editing nodes etc. So now I wanted to give a go at etching an enclosure for a current lover and this is what I have come up with so far.

My question is how can I clean this up a bit more? The lines aren't squared up like I would like. I tried editing nodes for a while and it only got me so far.   Any suggestions or anyone willing to help? I can email the files if someone wants to help.

Open Discussion / Where can I find klon style knobs?
« on: February 27, 2014, 09:25:43 PM »
I ordered some from PPP and they were way smaller than I thought they would be. Does anybody know where to get full sized Davies 1400 style knobs? I've been searching around, but am coming up empty.

Open Discussion / I need an etchable centaur layout
« on: February 22, 2014, 09:30:34 PM »
I did a bit of searching, but I could only find one or two etch able layouts and there was no build docs/wiring diagrams.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
