1590a Wooly Mammoth - Hydrogen Fuzz
« on: November 23, 2017, 01:19:29 PM »
Here's my 1590a layout for the Wooly Mammoth. It works great and the layout is shared through my osh park account.

First laser engraved enclosure. It took a lot of tries to get there and I'm still not satisfied. To get down to the metal (or to be able to remove the charred powder coat residues) you need more than one pass with my machine or slow speeds. Both of those options reduce the detail drastically. Lessons learned: 1) Only make simple graphics for the laser. 2) it stinks like hell (also the residue) 3) Envirotex doesn't make the residue look darker. I cleaned the enclosure with isopropanol after engraving and the wet graphic gave a better contrast so I put on Envirotex, but it's not the same effect.

Anyways, the wooly mammoth is a great fuzz, gnarly like a fuzz factory, but without oscillations and knob settings that don't do anything.

Really really cool. I', gonna build mine too.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.
