Getting there, workshop overhaul!
« on: February 10, 2018, 09:09:35 AM »
Yoski!

Well... in order to be able to build, test or simply have electronic fun, i had to to do a massive makeover/overhaul of my "shop".... ...making like 6 months that i was telling to Pickdropper that i had to do it... lol

Was a freaking mess in there, had become a chaotic storage room... ..still have LOADS of part, fail and other random stuff to sort... ...but it's getting there...!

I'm still trying to find mine.  Can we have a contest for worst "before" pic?  :P

Mine isn't in a terrible state, but I would like to clean it up a bit before I photograph it.

I remember this one time I cleaned up my work station. Good times, good times. I looked at the desk and said, "Gosh, such a clean workspace!" It was a pleasure to work on for the 5 minutes that it stayed clean.  ;D

I populated 4 PCBs this week. I find myself dangerously close to actually building some pedals...

Now I want to see what kind of pedal one can make with an electronic throttle body...

A Gas Pedal?
I sometimes build pedals as "Dan"
I built peddles for Bat Thumbís car.

Well.. they are "Drive by Wire" TBs.... and once hooked up and powered they offer quite a wide range of sounds, depending of how much input is given... ...it can be really loud!  ;D

While sorting some of the boxes and overall mess, i found quite a good load of populated pcb ready to be boxed... ...things might get interesting soon!

You should have most of the new PCBs kicking around somewhere. I'm fairly certain we sent you at least one of each at some point.
