I started using those terminals because I found it easier to remove the board for debugging or modding.I get them from a site here in Australia . I am jealous of those pcb's though, that one with the circular resistor pattern is awesome
it seems soooooo easy when looking at your builds, john.... but i've actually built an Openhaus and:
- i had to file the edges of the board like crazy for it to fit in the 1590BB
- i tried to route the wires the way you did it, but using AWG24 wire... it got REALLY messy
- i've used BIG 470uFs electros, so tall I've had to solder them on a separate daughterboard!!!!
- i couldn't put the 2 other toggle switches on the sides... how did you do this?? did you snip off the lugs?
yeah, it was a very tight fit (one of the tightest ones that I've built to date). since the board was so wide, I had to route the wiring at the top and bottom of the board as opposed to around the sides like I always do. I use 26 gauge belden Teflon coated silver multistrand wire and it's by far my favorite. and yeah, even though I always use the shortest length electros that I can find, I still had to shorten the lugs on the toggles so they'd fit under the board without any components contacting the back cover.
I did a couple of mods to slightly open up the circuit's top end, and even though I absolutely love the pedal, i'd never build another one...it was that hard to get everything to fit!
