No, not necessary yet, but you need to fill out the orderform at the bottom of this post and PM it to me or to info@nabla-instruments.com

I will confirm receipt of your order and send out a request for payment (commercial invoice) when I order all materials.

I will also PM the order form to you.

Is there an option to have the SMD ICs installed on the PCB? I can do single components, but those ICs :deadbanana:

hello NS4W,

If I would do this for one fellow Wiggler, I would have to do it for all as well.

Nevertheless,
as I'm always willing to help,
I have some unpopulated proto PCBs left.
I can put one in the package (for free) so that you can exercise your soldering.
Would that be of any help ?

Would this also be of any help for others ?

If I have the time tonight, I'll post a series of pictures of how I do it.

ICs look intimidating, but they're really quite easy using the drag-solder method.

Hello NS4W,

I'm not going to have the time tonight to publish some pictures, but this link shows pretty well what toneburst is referring to.
Always willing to help with private instructions as well.

Hello all,

no more orders accepted.

For those who ordered a kit and would like to rehears their TSSOP soldering skills,
I still have three protoboards available.
I will add them to your order (for free) on a first in first served basis.

Good luck with your Clap'a'Trap project and
thanks for your trust in this project.

Boogie.

Hello all,

PCBs arrived today.

Below a picture of the kit content.
Pls allow for a couple days for me to assemble the unit.
If everything is OK I will order the rest of the panels.

Nice!

That board is pretty densely-populated, isn't it...

Good thing I've bought myself a new soldering-iron, with an extra-fine tip!

SMD's are populated.
The two missing parts along the top edge are 'Do Not Populate'

The thing should be functional tomorrow.

Hello all,

Assembly completed and unit functional.
No patching, no wires, just clean populated PCB.
I had to update 1 resistor and 1 capacitor which have seemed to slip through the design update. (2k2 to 560 Ohms and 2n2 to 22n)

Unfortunately I did swap the text for Decay and Pitch in the CV.
Fortunately, I only ordered 1 FP.
Correction has been made
and all FP have been ordered this afternoon.

The updated BOM for the kit V1.02 is in attachment.

Front Panels have arrived :bananaguitar:

As I've been pretty sick, and still am not recovered, I'm not going to be able to ship tomorrow.
I should get the transport documents ready over the weekend and will ship early next week.

I'll update all buyers with their tracking number by PM or email.

No more orders nor payments (for open orders) accepted.
Open orders without payment are considdered void.
