(we're about 15 shots in after 33 posts)

I'm just practicing humility and making the point that I don't have a deep understanding as it would be expected from someone that bothered to go to college for engineering. Too many years passed, and though I won't have to literally start over from the beginning, I'll certainly have to review from there and work hard to achieve a level of understanding and knowledge to follow a lot of what is covered here.

You know there's an opposite side to that with a lot of contributors building countless known designs, many that sell them, understanding next to nothing about the science, but frequenting the forum and posting far more than I ever will.

Here's a photo if that helps you cope with my delinquency better

I think FiveseveN didn't have any intention to insult/offend you.. :icon_wink:

Your science must be better than you think - you have managed to get an aluminum box to rust.  Kudos!

Sorry Ron, but there is only one like per post permitted.. :icon_biggrin:

my brother in law once said to me at a wedding or similar - It's a long time for a drink.





FiveseveN - skol!

RangeMaster:
Cool effect.
Ge Q1 OC140 C Biased to 7.02 v with 51ish resistor.
Select-able C1 with three values 472 473 474, nice.
Metal film resistors, sans 3 1M.
Acrylic face plates, with mistake.
2 fishes.

In getting a bunch of the things at Tayda I noticed a Rangemaster PCB and figured I'd been planning to build one. It arrived, negative supply! Oh well, made a fix to fit from Peter Seigfield's drawing (who gave us positive supply DRM? R.G.? Mark?) and it works out!(w/low volume hiss)

Re: RangeMaster
Outside of the DIY forum, which has lots of good RM info, I also looked at:
1 General Guitar Gadgets
2 Fuzz Central
3 ElectroSmash
From their great articles I made the RM you see above, sans temp diode....
(By using sockets for the 3 C1 capacitors,  I have learned what the "sound" effects are of different values.)

Tom, Looks that way, thank you....
Either the "previous" foot switch didn't work before I soldered it so it so well that it would "never ever" fall apart, or the solder job toasted it.
SO, tip of the day, you only need to solder half the lug, thus reducing the induced heat. And maybe not scrapping the switch, my solder skills are getting better as to limiting the heat. Saves solder too. Like it ain't going anywhere. (Boy you can't pull the wool over any eyes here, lol, good observation)

My build of Christine is finally built, boxed, and working! Have yet to finish my LFO machine to test that part of it (the switches and leds on top), but confirmed working otherwise! Had a hell of a time cramming it in this diy dual steel stud box(1590DD would've worked), kept shorting, so coated everything in liquid electrical tape. Next pedal gets one CV in with an internal buffer/inverter and on/off/backwards switch, plus a pot to reduce level, one set for each pot. I love her though, can destroy everything! With a DRM in front she absolutely annihilates!

Paul, you're killing it with those acrylic faceplates. 👍

geeze louise, are they pk screws sticking up through the front panel? it would be better for your feet if you covered their points with a bit of lego each.

Hum, Looks like Matthew is using the techniques of Ed Geise, owner of an electronics repair shop called Interfax Electronics. And a Heavy Metal touch to the enclosure. I like it.

Duck, my wife gave a +1 to legos, though we're passed the stepping on them stage we've loads for godchildren, etc. After deciding to just strap that Vero with credit card strips I was going to file them...but Christine is mean!!! User beware!!!(until I poke my foot and call it a problem to fix)

Phend, thanks! She is metal, and a bit heavy! I was thinking to fill the holes and go glossy red but I dunno, I kinda like the very much a wreck feel!
