Re: freddie's gone to pot

a thought just occurred...

what happens if a pot fails in my 339?
or the better question: what does one do to remedy a pot failing in a 339?

Re: payg data only sim card

thanks guys, but as I wrote in the first post I want a card that supports 2G(for a GPRS modem) and charges by the MB used. I only use about 30MB per month so the 4GB and 8GB are way over the top. I currently pay £1 per month for 200mb but I only use about 20MB and I have to pay the £1 every month by...

payg data only sim card

bit of a long shot this one... I'm struggling to find a data only sim card that doesn't involve pay up front... The one I'm currently using in this installation is proving trixy to transfer credit to an add-on. I want a card that supports 2G(for a GPRS modem) and charges by the MB used. I only use a...

Re: A little light humour

Re: freddie's gone to pot

Yay!! Freddie's back in business. I had to ream the holes in the plate to get the new pots in as they were half a mil bigger diameter on the threads.... also the tone control is next to useless...I put the old cap back which is 0.068uf, which I guess is good for 500k pots..I think the 250k pots woul...

Re: freddie's gone to pot

thanks Chris....I had 3 x cts 250k log delivered yesterday. I think it's an age thing, but I do seem to be overthinking everything these days....having given it a bit more "sensible" thought I don't think it would matter what I put in because I'm unlikely to be able to tell the difference....

Re: Nothing In Particular

don't know if he'd be interested but I've been "designing" wings for model aircraft for years. I developed a program many years ago to print airfoil sections from established designs in order to build the wings.... http://www.vitalstates.org/diy/software/vsl-software.htm#software It uses a...

Re: freddie's gone to pot

I'm just going to fit some 250 log to the volumes and 250 linear to the tone.... what's the worst that can happen Cor how confusing does this need to be...I've just read the following from axecaster: You will find many differing opinions on which is better, but one thing on which nearly everyone ag...

Re: freddie's gone to pot

What he said - except the wipers are not connecting to the tracks(?) :D I have taken pots apart before, for 'direct treatment' correct, not connecting to tracks...measuring the wiper half way is unlikrly to tell me anything reliable. I'm just going to fit some 250 log to the volumes and 250 linear ...

Re: freddie's gone to pot

more waily I've just taken the switch plate off...and all I can read on the pots is 00k. The solder is masking the rest of the writing. Soooo I'm not sure if they are A or B pots. From all the confusing offerings on the internet I can't guess whether they are 100 or 500k....I will disconnect the pic...

Re: Millett LR + TP Opus + AMB α24 reboot

overrated!
my last pair are now 31 years old and the inner sole has started to bulge, right under the arch of my toes....Pah!
manufacturer said buy a new pair but Mr Cheapskate would rather put up with the discomfort,
but I still wear them regularly to go slope soaring on the north York moors
