Just to keep you up to date on the PVC pipe amp kits… I’m working hard on the manual for the assembly. Whew, it’s a lot of work! It’s up to 22 pages now, and that just for the PCB and Faceplate assembly!
For the Faceplate drawing, I had to download the AppImage of latest build of FreeCAD (still at 0.17), because, well, I couldn’t figure out where 0.16 went (thanks, Ubuntu!), and the Ubuntu-software center version of FreeCAD (also 0.17) didn’t have dimensioning capability. Hopefully they’ll get up to version 1 of FreeCAD someday….
I’m having a hard time deciding whether or not to include a 15″ x 15″ baseplate in the kit, because it means the shipping carton has to be much larger. Any opinions? Also, the 90-deg elbow is easily available at any home improvement store, so I might leave that out too, because it might cost as much to ship as it is to buy in person! Besides, if you want to recreate the Super Mario Bros amp, you don’t need an elbow!
I made a few videos pertaining to the assembly. Those will be posted once the manual is done and the kits are ready.
Once the weather lets up, I can go ahead and router the features into the five remaining PVC pipes I have here. That a major part of the kit.
