Rustbucket!
« on: January 19, 2020, 01:15:13 PM »
This is my Rustbucket. There are many like it, but this one is mine.


Went with kind of the same theme that many go with, just a different take.

Nice work,
That's a good look for the circuit- seems to have turned out very shiny, how do you like the sounds?

Now..not to draw attention away from the positive, but you don't get a dc jack looking like that without a tale to tell!

Yeah, I had a tear out on the jack.  I donít have use if my drill press right now, and I didnít think to use a clamp to hold on to it.

Ah that's a bummer, I've totally done that before..with the wrist-twisting and the project flying across the room..your mileage may vary..but yeah, many times..
The upside, however, is that if anyone asks later, you can tell them something badass like you didn't have any bullets small enough that day.

Bwahahahaha, I figured Iíd get some JB weld or something Iíd it came down to it. I broke a couple of drill bits  while using my drill press and that happened. Itís kind of exciting. Especially if the enclosure catches your thumb on its way across the room.

Live the graphics Jimmilee! This reminds me that I need to buy an 18v adapter to see if all the ICs I replaced in mine actually did any good! Re: enclosures flying across the room: I havenít had that issue since I purchased a decent stepped drill bit.  Itís a real game changer.  It makes hand drilling a breeze! Iirc I went with an Irwin and itís going strong after 2-3 years of abuse.

No kidding? I bet you sooner have to change bits for the different holes too. How quickly do they wear out?

One bit will cover everything in a pedal and Iím still waiting to see how long they take to wear out after 2-3 years.
