I'm sorry sir, we only have the regular ohms.

You show me this today after I get hands on some TAS5613, PLL1705s and PLL1707s...

Love it.

Good one. Looks like the LPB I made from Chromospheres kit.
Jellybean dodging since 2012.
Smoke me a Kipper. I'll be back for breakfast.

I know it's not all smd but still...
This is my unfinished FV-1 infinite reverb project.
The board is almost fully populated now, but I still have to do some programming.

The guys at work found it funny too.

By the way; am I the only one, who normally is a righty when soldering, but switches to lefty from time to time when doing SMD? (pincer in right, iron i left)

There are some more pics in the Pictures thread, but since this is the SMD thread.  It's pretty straight forward, and kind of a boring project, but it is going to be REALLY useful.

Probably smallest UniVibe clone in the World housed in 1590B Hammond enclosure.
Made in SMD technology with light bulb and all components and options as Shin-ei Uni-Vibe.

Here are a couple of teaser shots that I took a dev board we made for Function f(x) a while back.

I work with SMD all day at work. Except for the three boards that insert into the mainboard, there is only one through hole part on the the entire unit. However, I have a microscope there that makes it like child's play. Won't dare try it at home without a scope though. Maybe some day I'll get one off the bay or something. I would like to see how small I could make some of these circuits.

Pickdropper, what do you call those interconnects labelled J6 and SW6 and such?
They would be so useful to me to build two PCBs on top of each other without using wires to connect them.

Well this... this is just silly... this can't fit in a 1590B... can it? And you're not even using SMD you mad man!

Those are standard receptacles for pin headers with 0.100" spacing.  IIRC, these are Harwin, but they could be any of a number of manufacturers.

I'll let my brother know all the fun things the PICs are being used for. He recently got a job at Microchip. He's an EE. :)

This just means I have to get back into SMD soldering.

SMT is easy.

Alright, I just watched the videos and my interest has gone up. I'm convinced I can at least try it out. I have a brilliant set of tweezers and a Weller WESD51 soldering station with a couple different tips. Can anyone recommend a basic project for me to get my hand dirty with SMT? Low parts count would be preferable as I don't have any SMT parts on hand and would be ordering everything.

Well, Adafruit, Jameco, and Sparkfun all have at least a couple SMT kits - not really music related at all, but they would be a fine place to start, but to be honest I've always just designed my own projects, so pick anything simple you like, and go from there.  I will say, getting your boards made is really helpful if you are going to be using surface mount parts, as the solder mask makes a big difference, particularly for drag soldering. 

I (and judging from the color of the boards, many other people in this thread) use OSH Park to make my boards; I use KiCAD to design them (I like that it is truly open source, and that it is very powerful for a free program, but it does have some quirks that can take some getting used to!); and most of my libraries come from THIS GUY, though I obviously have to design some custom parts from time to time, which is not too hard.
