Finally put together my Arcadiator, very fun circuit to fool around with :)

turned out really nice Rej! and the guts are super clean too. I'm wondering though how you know what the knobs and switches do on all your pedals if you never use labels ^^
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Thanks mate!

I mostly use the "tweakandfindoutwhatthehellallofthismessisdoing"  ;D

For dirt stuff or other common circuits, they're usually pretty much all laid out in the same manner so it's a no brainer... ...at some point i like to not know what the knob are on modulation, filter and other stuff that can get pretty wacky... ...it takes out a part of the pre-conceived idea that you can have to approach and tune an effect, more of a how it feels thing i guess.

Looks awesome Rej! Short shaft switches for the win also.

For some reason the short shaft ones are the better, I don't know why.

That looks like a really cool build. I'd like to give that one a shot sometime.

I didn't realize how much I missed seeing your builds until now! Nice to see those anti-rotation tabs again.

That's something that never happened to me, can't recall having more problems with long shaft toggles. Just always prefered the look of the short ones.

Thanks man!

...little holes that afterward makes an whole build boxing easier.

Beautiful work Rej! This is a reminder that I too heed to cross this one off my list!
