Am i ordering right parts for npn boost?
« on: June 16, 2013, 02:28:53 PM »

In addition can someone tell me a good breadboard to order so i can test everything out before i assemble and solder them together?

I also have a hammond 1590b enclosure at home, i assume it will work well for this project.

Thanks

The switch, pot type (should have regular solder lugs not pc mounted), breadboard - you want stripboard (available via the STORE link above). The resistors and capacitors are ok. You want a stereo jack (which you have) but also a mono jack for the output.
I see that I need to get the beginners kit going again.

@aron
     - I think you are saying that the switch i showed the link to would be ok? It seems to have the solder lugs (if im not mistaken) If not then what switch should i order?

     - Will a 1590b hammond enclosure do fine?

Thnaks for the help one and all.  Im gonna make this thing yet!

You want a 3PDT switch. I would get the 1590BB to start with.

Cheap red LED's by the bulk pack.

Pick the size you like (I prefer 5mm).

Voltage rating doesn't matter?


How do I mount them?

This is exactly what I have a bag of and have yet to run out:

There are bezel options for them, or actually a discussion about alternative mountings going on at the moment somewhere here.

Beginner project is a 9V project?

The link I sent suggests a 330R for 9V supply - but try and see between that and 68K, resistors and LEDs are cheap learning experiences.

Is stranded insulated wire ok for the input and output jacks?

Or do I need shielded wire?

I use stranded copper twists recovered from my IT jobs/ventures (wake on lan/audio cables guys)  unless something gets noisy or goes "wrong". Then I use sheilded copper twists/shielded coax depending whats on hand/in which toolbox.

Solid core is great, till it breaks - then its a nightmare, I only use it on my breadboard.
