Benjolin PCB

Post by tele_player » Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:09 am

I've recently stumbled across this noisemaker, and I'm interested in building one. I've downloaded necessary files from electro-music.com (Benjolin PCB layout for the real DIY), and am looking into etching my own board.

Frankly, I'd prefer to avoid this step. Does anybody here have a burning desire to etch a couple of boards?

I’ve had some of Forestcaver’s 603 smd panel+pcbs fabbed up - I’d be happy to send you a set if you cover shipping.

Not sure if you are comfortable with parts that small...
It began as a mistake.

That’s very nice of you, but no, I don’t want SMD. My old eyes have enough trouble with through-hole parts!

I totally understand; my eyes are pretty good for up close work, but even with magnification 603 gives me some trouble due to my being quite a bit less dextrous with one hand than the other.

Hope you find someone to help you out!
