^^^ Nice Job Buddy looks AweSome.
Thanks Buddy, For Sure there awesome and solid too, i dont think ill be stripping the screws or breaking this box even if i hit it with sledge hammer. LOL.^ That looks great man! Nice job!
That's the same box I used, they're great.
Jib,Its the circuit from the OP w/ my layout and part selection.
Attached. I get my parts from Mouser.com because they happen to be in the DFW area(1day ground shipping ), but digikey is good too.If it is not too much to ask could you please post the pcb file for your latest layout and the list of the components you have used.
1st choice:I would also appreciate if you could post a link to the domestic PCB printing company.
Yup ... as you can see I have plenty. It cost the same to order 3 as it does to order 20 ... I'm going to sell them at $5ea + $1flat shipping(US), PM me.Also would you consider selling one of the complete PCBs (with components mounted)?
Such a guide would be a serious undertaking, but needed ... but just a few points. Each board house and service level has their own requirement and options. If you have any questions about a particular option PM me. As far as soldering ... look for SMD soldering tutorials on youtube, flux is your friend.p.s. If someone could post a step by step guide for n00bs like me on how order this PCB (what to choose when ordering the PCB made) and where to buy the components, following by how to solder and assemble the unit, this guide would be worth a sticky and a gazillion of +REP points IMO

PCB Only ... (no way I could do that ... each 3214 pot is $3.22!)Jib,
Thank you for the reply and for offer of help. Greatly appreciated!
Let me make sure though: you are going to sell the PCB with SMDed components for 6 dollars shipped in US? This sounds too good to be true
This is not always true! I bought a panel meter on ebay thinking the same thing, it's a 0-99.0V. I even had an email exchange with the seller about it. Their design did not have a simple resistor value feature for moving the "dot" Others do have that, look very closely at pictures of the PCB, sometimes they have an array of resistors labeled for diff ranges - in this case you can find a combination you need to read 0-0.999V.I read that even if you buy a 20v on its just a resistor swap to make it read just 2v
