Welcome to LPF. I like the title of this thread! Nice.

Have a good loo around and plan your first build by looking to see what others have done with the same equipment. Settings; batteries; lenses etc...

Plenty of guides around to in many sections. I tried to put a few together in the link below and goninanbl00d has done some more indepth reading too.

Practical time fillers are, as iFoSh wrote above, practice soldering; and as awlego wrote, read, read, read. Also, strip some old DVD rewriters and dig out the diodes from the sleds. (You can usually scrounge at least a couple of broken ones from PC repair shops.) Likely no-one will have a clue what the diodes will be as there are plenty out there we just don't use because they're puny. However, your hands will start to learn and get a feel for the parts and tasks you'll be asking them to carry out later.

Good luck and the waiting for parts to get on really sux!

Soldering can be a piece of cake if you have the right tools. For example, for small drivers( flexdrive, microboost ) that fit pen-style hosts, you need a thin solder wire. Also I would suggest studying some basic electronics if you plan to be a "builder". You really need to know as much as you can about capacitors and diodes. There are tons of stuff you can learn in this forum. Just spend some days reading And above all, mind the safety issue first. You only have ONE pair of eyes.

I almost forgot, welcome to the forum bud!
