    I sanded off all the layers of paint on mine and out of curiosity, polished it up on my buffing thingy - I might still sand it back and paint, but for now it's just going to be a shiny enclosure.

    This is because I still haven't got round to building the rest of it, if I spend another few weeks doing the enclosure I'll never get it built :)

    I'll post a pic when it's done.

    I built another Fuzz Factory variant. This one has an extra knob, "sub", which is a 50k log pot in series with a 3.3uF capacitor and these are in parallel with C2 in the schematic I posted earlier.

    Ladies and Gentleman, the Fuzzadillo!

    (Note - I did not draw the Armadillo, I found it on Google Image Search).

    You're churning them Fuzz Factories out @Philtre at the moment, is this the third? Next thing is to try them all together at once :scream:

    Finished off this one today (See my other thread for full details). 



    It's a Ross compressor.  I love how this one turned out.  The ET is so shiny you can see the knobs reflected in the top. :mrgreen:  

    Hopefully my next pour will be less stressful and I may learn to love ET.

    Very neat job there, Steve! Looks great. :-)

    Which circuit layout did you use?

    I had to tweak slightly for a couple of bits - 3.5mm remote footswitch jack and a schottky. Details  and gutshots in my other thread

    Just did my first ET pour, based on the helpful advice here its gone well!
    Q
    After say 24 hours, could I clean out the pot holes with a sharp blade instead of waiting for full cure and drilling?

    I’ve seen some posts on Madbean from guys who do that but I haven’t strayed very far from Juan and Cleggys guide.  I’m happy enough to do them in batches and leave them for a few days.  

    I will say say you do have to be really careful though I have gotten finger print marks on mine after 24 hours which never came out.

    As @Adam_MD says. 24 hours is not enough. I've made small impressions in the ET as it is still malleable at this stage. A bare minimum is 48 hours, but preferably 4 days. Personally, I would drill the holes with a stepper drill (however, I do the 3mm LED hole manually with increasing sized drill bits - 2mm, 2.5mm then 3mm swizzling the drill bit in my fingers).

    ....and can sound like a bucket of badgers. I like getting it to self-oscillate, messing around with the pitch and running it through my DD500 delay using an exp pedal to ramp up delay feedback and make crazy noises :naughty:
