I'm doing a run of full kits, component kits, panels & PCBs.

http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=941192#941192

It's motherfucking bacon yo




---------






Orders OPEN. A few panels of both designs left as of 1st Sept 2012. PM me order details as specified in the 2nd post in this thread.

DO NOT REMOVE THE PAPER FROM THE PANEL BEFORE YOU PAINT IT! see quote at the end of this post for a painting guide.



Both designs are available.
Panels are 6 GBP each (approx 9.5 USD).

Shipping will be 2 GBP per order for Europe or 2.5 GBP for World/USA

These panels will be supplied 'as-is', no variations in font or panel colour or design will be available in this run.

More info on Tombola's Random Looping Sequencer project here - http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=60740

The design is manufactured in black acrylic, as you can see in this video that material choice is important for the top blinkenlight action - http://vimeo.com/42939320



I used the same manufacturer than Tombola used, 4D Laser, you'll need to do the engraving paint fill yourself. Tombola describes it thus:

Quote:
When I got them cut, they put masking tape over the top (ie engraved) part. That makes it super easy to infill the engraved letters with white acrylic paint.


Obviously you can fill in whatever colour you like. I won't be filling any panels for anyone else, even at extra cost cool

Here's a good guide for the similar painting technique from the sammichSID build manual, be careful with knives though... maybe the particular panel mentioned here is more resistant to scratching.

Quote:
The panels are made from laser-cut acrylic and come with backing paper still attached and the engravings
cut through the backing paper. This paper makes an ideal mask for painting the engraving.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can build the entire sammichSID with the backing paper still on the panels, and then paint the panel engraving after you have finished. This allows you to play with your new MIDIbox SID synth while you paint the panels (a slow process).

The original sammichSID prototypes were painted using acrylic paint, but since then, people have
used other kinds of paint. Gloss enamel paint, like what is used in model making, can be used, and might be preferable to acrylic.

I do not have a “perfect” technique yet, but you can achieve very good results by doing the following:

Find some good acrylic or enamel paint. White paint will work best, colours might appear too dark against the black background. For colours, you could try white paint and then a coloured ink glaze.
Test your technique on a small area of the rear panel, where a big mistake is less obvious and easier to fix.
I suggest the “POWER” label on the rear panel. If doing this, only peel off a section of the mask where
you have added paint.

Using some paint thinned with water, apply the paint into the engraving, minimizing the amount of paint
is left on the mask. Wipe up excess paint with a piece of damp sponge. It is better to apply multiple coats
of thinned paint (at least initially) than thick paint. Avoid the temptation to get it done quickly and slap on
thick paint from the tube, at best this will require a lot of scraping of paint from the mask, at worst there
won't be clean edges to the engravings, which you'll discover after peeling off the mask and making it
very difficult to fix.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You do not want paint sticking between the engraving and the mask, as this will
cause paint to be pulled out of the engraving when you peel off the mask. It's OK if there's a little bit of
paint residue on the mask, that's unavoidable. Wiping up excess paint with a piece of damp sponge not
only avoids this problem, it also makes it easier to see how much paint is actually in the engraving and
how clean the edges are.

Wait until paint in the engraving has dried and apply more paint. Continue to do this until the paint in the
engraving is even and solid. You are aiming for the engraving to still be concave, not totally filled. If it
looks even and you're happy with it, stop adding paint.

If required, use a craft knife to scrape some paint off the mask at the edge of the engraving, i.e. where it
might pull paint out of the engraving when you peel off the mask. If you've wiped up excess paint as you
applied each coat, you might not need to scrape off paint at all.

Slowly pull off the mask, checking how the mask is lifting off near the engraving. Clean up any imperfections using a craft knife. The matte black acrylic surface is quite tough and won't
be scratched by scraping with the edge of a knife.

Orders Open - Only a handful left

ok I'm taking orders again,

Max order is 2 panels.

I"ll keep going until I've run out of panels.

Please PM me the following text:

Quote:
I would like to order:

X x Sweeping Arcs Turing Machine Panels
X x Spirograph Turing Machine Panels

I'm aware that I may have to pay additional amounts of customs and tax in my country and that currency exchange rates fluctuate.

I'm also aware that I'm only buying an engraved and laser cut acrylic panel that may help me building an electronic module - I'm *not* buying a diy kit, not a project - just a panel. I understand that the panel comes without any paint infill on the engraving.

My shipping address is

Hey Monobass, do you have any idea what the price range will be? I'd be very much interested in one, but still a bit reluctant to vote.

Price - It will be comparable to other panel buys of course. If price is your main consideration then vote for 'either'.

I think also the right panel is bound to be cheaper as it's clearly a less complicated engraving job.

I think it's possible to do runs of both but I can't commit to that right now.
