Hehe GreenFuz, you take this "Do-It-Yourself" thing very seriously ;)
"A girl" is an interesting circuit. http://tinyurl.com/2cboan
I should include one in my upcoming project.

man, that's offensive
maybe blowing it out of proportion, but, these are the little details that make 'only men' places

i'm just a new guy here, but maybe it's stuff like that that makes this a "only people with a sense of humor" place

Oh, sorry, I didn't wanted to offend anyone. It really is a bit offensive..
I'm sorry. It was a bad joke.  :)

Come on folks, cut Rigley some slack. That link is not really offensive. To my mind it`s a novel and creative use of some spare parts. These pictures ( "indiscrete components" as I`ve seen them rather wittily referred to elsewhere ) have been linked to in previous posts without any mention.

I don't see anything at all offensive about it.  Lighten up.  It's funny and creative.   If that's offensive then inserting in a male 1/4" plug into a female jack is porno.

it's ok, seems i'm too sensitive  ;D
now, experience has told me that women have a hard time understanding that kind of "humor" -some find it offensive-, so if integration is the goal, i think thats not the path...

Rigley, excuse me for helping OT'ing this thread, i'm over here.. cheers

Rigley, just to get things back on topic you might want to consider omitting the battery to give yourself that extra bit of real estate. Just use a DC jack. I love the idea of several effects in one box. Enclosures seem to be one of the costlier aspects of pedal building.

Another new guy; looks like we walked in at the same time, howdy. I was going to house a Rangemaster & Llama together before I built the Llama...not quite the Sunn Beta CMOS sound I was trying to find.

I might use jacks if I do build a combo pedal, for patching flexibility with even other pedals. Stand-up resistor mounting saves a bit of room, but I like some space between the footswitches anyway so that means bigger enclosures for me.  Either feet too wide or stage act too sloppy, I couldn't use some narrowly-spaced MIDI boards of last cent'ry. Stage floor space is finite for mere mortals, but a tight footswitch array can distract you onstage--if you're not there now, your new-found tones may get you there!

Have fun w/your builds; I can't stop...unless it's to make a 'baudy' sculpture (wish I hadn't seen it--now I gotta make one that lights up, for Anniversary gift).

Thanks for the tips guys!
I'm quite busy at the moment, but I will get back to planning/building pedals after my exams are over.
I've already ordered some parts, and a 1590D box.

3 quick questions:

-The TL072P and the TL072CP IC's are compatible? What is the difference?
-Do I need to drill the aluminium box upside down (from the inside) on a flat surface, to prevent the deformation of the top/walls? Or I can safely drill normally, without having to fear of bending...etc.
-Can I extend this wiring for more than 2 circuits?:

Thanks!

#1- sorry but i don't know chips.
#2- you shouldn't have to worry about deforming the enclosure. unless you are using some old dull bits that you have to sit on to get them to drill. the walls of the enclosures are relatively thick and the aluminum drills easily.
#3-i don't see why you couldn't add on to it. you just have to keep in mind the power supply. if you're thinking about 3 or 4 pedals that will be mostly used one at a time or 2 at a time then your fine. i'm not sure how long the battery would last running more than 2 pedals? smarter people than i can tell you more.
