It all started with this:
A sheet of decals:
One in the water:
Slide it on:
And that’s it:
After clearcoat and nearly done:
Did it turn out just as I planned? Of course not! I’m okay with it 'though, just need to add a bottom at some point and the power switch. Amazingly, when I plugged the XT piece in, it actually worked!
@piscione very cool , especially the sliders
Like the slider idea! I think it graphically represents the idea a bit better than rotary.
But, round holes are your friends. Anything else is definitely not your friend.
Cool! So, it began with “spontan”, means spontaneous in English, then warped into a blue meanie.
Do these sliders come with LEDs, or are they “normal”?
They are normal. Short but normal. I painted the tops with a dimensional glue (used for plaques and buttons) mixed with metallic orange paint.
I know round holes are easy. I only wish I had some of these bits:
Although, nowadays with them laser cutters one can get away with having sliders and square buttons for friends too. Granted it is a less DIY solution for most.
Wow, that’s amazing. Here’s a couple of shots with the family:
1974, bought it new when I was 16 years old.
Well done ! So your BOM for mouser was good
A complete family ! is the XT a Yellow magic ?
Thanks. The BOM is a little screwy. The line-up is a Polivoks (you recognize that one), 4PM, ladder, SMR4 mk 1 and SMR4 mk 2.
