Silly question, but what is the 8-pin female header for?
View attachment 11756
It goes right here. The purpose is to prevent the battery from falling inside the enclosure since the PCB sits a little higher than normal.
The board was originally going to use another method but that part has become hard (impossible) to find, so you'll need to clip four pins from the header and it'll drop right in.
Of course you don't need it if you don't plan to use a battery.
I'll post a pic of my build shortly.
Could you please put this information on the "Additional Information" section of the PCB. Because I'm pretty sure that someone might not have done it in that order and butchered an enclosure.That's the ones. I'll try to have some documentation posted shortly, but just in case....
Assembly is much easier if you go in this order:
1) Mount the 3PDT footswitches and LEDs in the enclosure first
2) Install resistors on PCB
3) Install DC jack on PCB
4) Install 1/4" jacks on PCB but do not solder yet
5) Connect battery snap to PCB
6) Insert PCB into enclosure and fit onto footswitches, adjust footswitch height as needed
7) Tighten nuts on 1/4" jacks, making sure the DC jack is aligned properly
8) Solder 1/4" jacks / 3PDT / LED
If you install the 3PDT footswitches onto the PCB before mounting it in the enclosure you won't likely be able to maneuver it into place.
Soldering the 1/4" jacks after tightening the hardware allows them to adjust to the slope of the enclosure wall without putting stress on the solder joints.
Funny part is, I actually READ this information, and still screwed up.. needless to say, this PCB exits in a 1590XX enclosure, Why? Because bigger DOES matter, not because I messed up or anything........ lolCould you please put this information on the "Additional Information" section of the PCB. Because I'm pretty sure that someone might not have done it in that order and butchered an enclosure.
