I would load this page, then save it onto your hard disk using IE or Mozilla's save page feature.

It will take a while to load due to the pictures.

Good Luck!

No problem. Let me work on this part and post it.

OK, take a look at this:



The above picture works in conjunction with this:



It should be noted that I do not connect the wires directly to the points from the bottom of the board. What I do is locate the next closest hole and place the wires from the TOP of the board and then bend the bare wire to touch the points. Then I solder the wire to the point and to the pad/hole that it enters the bottom of the board from.

In other words, all my wires enter the board from the top, not the bottom.

Of course you need to strip the wire first using your wire stripper, then insert the bare wire into the board from the top.

Here's a picture from the DIY FAQ that shows a DPDT using the millenium bypass (LED circuit).

??? With a DPDT switch, what do you connect to the 2nd pole? It's left open in your diagram...
I don't like Holland. Nobody has the transistors I want.

can you show me how you would connect the ins and outs from the circuit board to a SPST switch to the in and out jacks please? thanks

For a SPDT, see the first picture of this link:

:? I'm having a bit of trouble undertstanding where to hook up all of the wires after the components have been soldered.  I am trying to set up the board without a footswitch (so that I can just plug and play) and the one picture posted earlier isnt making any sense to me.  Where do I connect the negative terminal of the 9V battery snap?  Exactly where do I place the wirings on the input/output jacks? Also, do you have a pic of what the pot looks like with the cap on it?  Do you have an actual pic of the finished board with all the wirings, so that i can compare it to mine?  So many questions, but I'm just confused.  Thanks for any help.

This is Pre-Newb calling. When/where did you solder the transistor in, and how can yu tell which lead is for which on a transistor? (SOOOO newb...)

VERY very newb. Does it matter which holes u place everything on the circut board???If it does matter how do u  know??? :oops:  :oops:  :oops:

Good question, but remember this from the pictorial:

I keep chanting the golden rule:

If I connect the components together correctly, it will work. It doesn't matter if they are "in the air" or on cardboard, as long as they are connected together correctly (not shorting), the circuit will work.


So, start anywhere but connect the leads correctly and your circuit will work.

Transistor?

Hey Aron, thanks for doing this fancy beginner's project, I've enjoyed attempting to work it out, and I am still working on it. But I noticed in your build picture, there is no actual transistor in the DIp8 socket. I was wondering why it's like that? Also, when I purchased my parts, being a newbie to the whole thing, the guy that I was talking to said I didn't need to bother with a ic socket thingy. Is that okay? or does that ruin the plan of the pedal? Thanks
John

You just push the transistor into the socket to place it in the circuit. Very easy.

The reason I used a socket is:

1: to tech you how to use/create sockets.
2: so you don't burn out the transistor from bad soldering.
3: So you can re-orient the transistor correctly if you placed it in the wrong way.
4: So you can try different transistors.

But yes, assuming your soldering is OK and you have the pins right, you don't need a socket. But it's fun to try different transistors.
