You can short the switch with a resistor lead or wire, to test out your theory.  Reading your OP, it is weird that you don't get any signal in the off position.

Thanks everybody.

Problem solved. I started to unbox it tonight to check the connections and notice that as I took out the output jack the lug it connected to on the footswitch jostled around a bit. Plugged it all up and sure enough everything would cut in and out if I moved that lug around. I bypassed the switch and everything seems to work fine now other than the fact that it's always on.  Didn't put in an LED so I suppose I could shift the columns over to the left and pretend its a DPDT. Surprise I didn't catch it earlier.

Feel pretty good about having created the layout and the fact that it actually works.

Choice, great you found the spanner in the works. And nice to get a layout going after those gremlins in there.

Knew it had to be something simple.  Half the time those are the hardest to find because you're looking right at it.
