Post Day one - Start of assembling Reply with quote
Its sad how everyone is too busy nowadays to pursue their hobbies,
including myself. Years ago in high school this KIT would have been No1
priority and I absolutely would have to assemble it immediately, ignoring
school, homework and everything else Of course nowadays things work

However, today I had a bit of free time, not something that happens very
often. So I looked around and saw this KIT in the corner, waiting for me to
grab the soldering iron and start working.

Here's how everything looked when I started. Note how this kind of precise
work requires very steady hands so I included a can of beer to assure 100%
steady hand

A couple hours later this is what I had on my desk:

Problems (Elektor guys, you naughty lot) noticed so far:
- 7805 regulators have to be turned as on my photo, not as shown by silk-print.
- Be carefull how you turn the keys, they must be turned as shown on my photo. Nothing was mentioned in instructions by Elektor.

I don't know when I'll have more time to finish it. Its definitely a one-long-day project,
it could be assembled in one day if you dedicated yourself 100%. I'd like to see more
of you guys out there post your experience, I know you're out there as you've been
buying the KIT. I hope you had time to finish it, unlike myself.

Anyway, here's the kit:

Until next time, happy soldering!
