Ok. Look sthat thing showing the sqitch and input is down right confusing! It shows output going to switch even though there are TWO areas where th eoutput bits goto. This is completly out ofsync with the schematics!

The output wire goes to one lug of the switch and then the other lug of the switch goes to the output jack.

Are you talking about his picture?

Yeah. Ive sorted uot my circuit now. But one more question, is the LED supposed to do anything? ^^

The LED is supposed to light up when the circuit is active.

Hey Aaron - I must say that I see your techniques for laying out the perf board are much more efficient (vertical resistors led to adjacent holes, tucking cap leads back under to adjacent holes, using the tinned wire leads as connectors under the board).  If I had seen this post before building the green ringer, it could fit in a smaller MXR box.  (Hmmm...maybe I'll try that on a smaller perf board).

Are there any general pointers about soldering with the leads so close together?  How about tips for laying out the circuit before your populate the board?

Thanks for everything,

Mark

Im a total noob but what kinda wires do i need to wire up the things???
sorry, its my first time
also, can you show me a photo of of the wires and such all connected together... i get confused easily

Hi,

I don't exactly understand what the transistor socket does.  I mean, what is it exactly?  Do they have their own leads?

Does it keep each lead seperate?

And, did you put each transistor lead into a hole in the socket, and then solder them,
or do you attach the socket and then place the transistor in later?

Thanks for the quick reply.

But, you say: Yes, the socket does have it's own leads?  So that first picture is the socket only, and nothing else?


Also, when is the transistor added?
I still am confused about this:  Do you put the transistor in the socket and then solder it all onto the board together, or do you solder the socket, then just place the transistor in later?
What keeps the transistor from falling out?

Yep to both of those.

Also, when is the transistor added?
After you've finished everything, wires etc.

Solder the socket to the board without the transistor in it. When you've finished building you can add in the transistor.
The socket holds the transistor in pretty tight, I wouldn't be worried about it coming loose at all. When you fit a transistor into it you'll understand.

Thanks a lot, man.
Is there any specific reason why you put the transistor in last?

Transistor last? Kinda of like putting in the engine :-)

You can put it in any time actually after you have soldered the socket in.

see on the picture that shows you where to wire your board to? the square at the bottom with 9 red circles? is that the 5k pot? my 5k pot is nothing like that at all!

If so, that's the 3PDT switch.
