Still only 13 entries?  :icon_confused:
One more and you have a contest.  ;)
And more than half those entered will win something.  :o

And yes, my math is spot on.

We need two more don't we?

Does the 13 include those who have purchase additional entries?  For example, I paid $20, so that counts as 2 of the 13 entries, correct?

Okay. Here goes. If we reach the last hour for entries and still only have 14 I will put up the last 10 bux so this happens.
And enter nothing.
My way of giving something back to The Forum and all the good folks I have learned so much from.
And probably because I'm a total moron too.  :P
Whatever. I really want to help make this happen...

Very nice of you to offer that Dave.

death metal distortion, constipated delay, I got a good laugh out of that  :D

Regarding the braille fuzz pcb, here's the story. Having no access to a laser printer to do a toner transfer for my mate to etch, I went back to my old methods. I marked the holes in the pcb with some PC-drawn artwork (that would have been the toner transfer artwork).



Then I tried to draw some pads on top of the marked holes.



Next up I drew in the tracks with the dalo pen, using the artwork as a guide. The pen has a big tip making it really difficult and ugly. I found some remains of some FeCl hidden in the bathroom cupboard, made up a mix and etched.



I since read that a sharpie works well as an etch-resistant pen, and with a fine tip, it wouldn't be too hard to do a reasonably tidy job. Drilled the holes, mounted the components and it works fine. Unfortunately, on the artwork, I left out a couple of components that I thought I would not need, but I was wrong. I had to drill some more holes and squeeze in the extra parts...

I've basically finished the box but having trouble deciding on artwork/paint/finishing scheme. I polished the top to a mirror finish, sprayed it with clear acrylic and lost the shine. Applied inkjet waterslide and the black faded to dark grey with a mottled finish. Got the paint stripper out and took it back to bare metal and alodined it. Maybe I'll just leave it as is with minimal finishing, not sure.



Having never tried to build a nice-looking pedal before, I had no idea of the talent on this forum that is showcased in the pictures thread.
It ain't as easy as it looks!  :D

Having a lot of trouble with the pics, photobucket is playing up. I made that box Dave, took me a long time, the 2 pieces are sanded and filed to fit each other. Got any cool ideas for finishing it? A relic'ed finish maybe?

Thanks John, I moved the pics from photobucket to dropbox. Dunno what was going on there...

Nice job on building the box. Don't feel bad.  I'm all thumbs when it comes to finishing enclosures.  :icon_neutral:

DIY enclosure. Nice work! Be sure to mention that in your video. :icon_cool: Ideas for finishing? Have a look/see at the Pictures section. Lots of great and different styles and techniques on display there.

Wait, all we need is one more $10 entry, not necessarily a 15th contestant?

I "might" "end up with" a "second" board in that case, but it's not going in this enclosure!

Thanks to everyone who entered, especially those who ponied up more than one entry fee.  A new tally should show that we've got enough entries. :)

Be sure to enter a build for each and every entry fee that you paid  ;D

Looking forward to some phenomenal pedals!!!!  :o

That was like getting the cat in the box to go to the vet!
Good luck to all. Some great stuff to be won.  :icon_cool:
