Pretty impressive. Be great on a 1590a pedal board. Yes, I'm talking to you pickdropper. :)

Great build. I've used that same piece of art on a build but it didn't turn out nearly as nice. Good job.

Now you can get to work building a DIY card table to build your pedals upon. Mojo layered on mojo. You're welcome.

Uh…you realize a placebo and a placenta are two very different things, right?
Yes, I'm aware;) I was being goofy.  My wife always says I'm not as funny as I think I am.... I may have proved her point here:)

I was laughing but then again my wife says the same thing about me.

My wife says the same thing about me. I'm starting to think it's probably the wife's problem. Right guys? Guys?

I think a placenta could be a placebo but I don't think a placebo could ever be a placenta. Just sayn

Great! Thought I was getting close to having my pedal board complete and now I have to start building overdirve pedals.

General Questions / Re: Low profile jacks
« on: May 08, 2015, 01:23:27 PM »

Hello Bill, The jacks don't "have  to" ground to the enclosure, but the enclosure needs to be grounded to the circuit so with plastic jacks you'd need to come up with another scheme to ground the enclosure to the circuit.. The plastic jacks' grounds and the enclosure ground would be seperately wired to circuit ground where with the metal jacks, they are hopefully solidly connected to the enclosure (starwasher) so the jack ground wire will also ground the enclosure.

With metal jacks you'll often see only one of the jacks ground connected to circuit ground relying on the enclosure to complete the ground connection to the other jack.

That makes sense. Thanks for the info.

Thanks guys. These look great. HamSandwich that looks really interesting but a bit to extensive for what I'm looking for.
I think I'll try that FET2B or wait until Rully's boards are available.
Rully do you have any ETA on those boards you're going to offer?

Here they are, but honestly I'm not a big fan of them myself.  That being said, they will give you the most wiggle room if that is what you are after:

You could always use the lumberg/Kobiconn style open framed jacks for your build.  Paul has them is stock:

These wouls also work but would require careful drilling due to the size (I believe pickdropper typically uses this style)...

Thanks Jon. I searched Smallbear and didn't see those. Maybe I'll throw a couple into the cart and see if I like them.

I do have a question though. It looks like those are plastic. Doesn't the jack have to ground to the enclosure?

General Questions / Low profile jacks
« on: May 08, 2015, 12:08:28 PM »
Hi all. I was just looking at the baby board guide that Brian put out. In it he uses low profile 1/4" jacks that came from Smallbear. I just checked and it doesn't seem like they still carry them. Do any of you have a source for these?
