The posted dimensions on the eBay listing are 6 1/8 X 5 3/4 X 2 9/16. I'm waiting for him to get in the pre-drilled enclosures and then I'll have one and can verify the dimensions unless someone else gets to it before me.

Definitely let us know when they're back in stock. I was planning to pick one up but I hesitated too long and missed it  :-\

I bought the PCB and I'm about to start building. Do I need to do anything with all the little holes on the board that seem to lead to nowhere?

Nope, they're called "vias" and they connect copper traces on one side of the board to the other side. You can ignore them.

Mine actually showed up a few days ago, but I still have no idea when I'll get around to building it ::)

I'm glad some of you guys like the art work. I don't have the eBay enclosure, so I can't set up the file to the proper dimensions. However, anyone who does own it and wants to share the dimensions, I can set up the file and share the PDF here with everyone.

NOTE: This is designed for the eBay enclosure, which closely resembles the OEM housing from what I understand.

Cheers,
John

I've added the dimensions you need, let me know if you need anything more. Would you consider adding to your graphic file an option for the expression 1 and 2 jacks? While there isn't space on top for them it would be easy to install them on the back right side of the lid?

Thank you,

Michael

Did the MusicPCB shop go down permanently?  It's been like a month since it was supposed to be back up.. I emailed the contact, but no reply.   I hope not!  I never got a Meat Sphere board!   :icon_eek:

I'm still around - this month I moved from Louisiana to Oregon, and am just now getting internet service set up here. PCBs will be in stock and ready to ship in the next couple of days.  :)

edit: actually it was just a couple minutes. The site is updated and everything's in stock except the Echo Base, Christine and Tiny Giant kit (TG PCBs are available).

Well I ordered Taylor's board, and one of those Ebay enclosures as seen above.   I hope it fits, if not, I'll fly the pots and rotary switches.   Thanks again for the opportunity Taylor, I'm loving my Gristleizer and I'm looking forward to this build :D
