Shortstack
« on: September 09, 2012, 11:03:23 AM »
Finally got around to finishing my shortstack.. well mostly finished, I'll replace the long in/out runs to the board with shielded wire eventually.

Thanks! 

This was my first adventure with my wife's vinyl cutter and man do I love it!
I haven't liked any of my attempts with the water slide stuff (check my uproar pics later tonight) but the vinyl looks amazing!  I'm going to try doing a mask out of vinyl and etch an enclosure to see how it goes.

As far as  flipping the board around, It didn't bother me one bit, I like having short wire runs to the pots and the way it was all oriented worked out well for that.

Great sounding pedal, loving it and recommend building it (easy build).

Later!
Koko

hmm.. for some reason I'm not seeing your replies Corey when I check show unread.
Sorry for the late reply.

Yeah I bought my wife one of those Silhouette Cameo machines for Xmas last year.  Super easy to do the vinyl lettering and anything else you can think of.  The vinyl has an adhesive backing so once it's done cutting out the shapes it's as easy as putting a sticker on :) 

Ha! Didn't even notice the 100 posts, thanks!

Serious.  The Cricut is craft-Nazi with the predefined shapes, but that Cameo can do alot.  From etching boards to doing enclosure graphics...
