RealGamerCow: phantom power?
MrJWhit: Ian, where can I find that nice circuit diagram?
Arclight_Dynamo: It's pronounced "die-uh-fradge-um." Kappa
RandomTrivia: @RealGamerCow Condenser mics require a small amount of power, as Ian is currently describing,
RandomTrivia: This is usually provided by the same wire that is taking the signal back to wherever it's going
MrJWhit: Awesome, thank you so much!
RandomTrivia: Because the power isn't provided within the microphone itself, it's called "phantom"
Driosenth: in-line splice?

Electrodyne: No? PNP Music Factory then?
Lord_ZYRK: Especially with electronics, manufacturers have the plus of generally being better at sourcing genuine parts compared to a random consumer, and when you're dealing with specific signals, like with audio, the circuit design and PCB layout actually require quite a bit of know-how to maintain signal integrity without interference. . .
Driosenth: I_DSS is drain current
Lord_ZYRK: but overall it's more along the lines of what you said, TheMerricat
MrJWhit: @iris_of_ether Yeah, same!
SnackPak_: A transistor tier list
UWDJohn: @iris_of_ether Same. :)
aussz: I made a pizza!
TheWriterAleph: critroleNein
iris_of_ether: benginHi Hey ho fellow engineers, techs, enthusiasts, and other learners!
Bobtheninjagoldfish: NIEN!
aussz: let me elaborate... I made a pizza and NOT a large cheese-covered cracker, which is what I usually end up with
Beefpants: I had to buy surface mount jets and mount them on tiny converter boards
Beefpants: *jfets
Raiger: @aussz to be fair, the latter doesn't sound all that bad either so win-win either way! but yay pizza! :D
aussz: @Raiger it's the first time that I've ever actually wanted to finish the crust
iris_of_ether: So, as someone who has worked in power engineering (not signal engineering) there a reason for preferring JFETs for this, over BJTs or other things?
MrJWhit: Because that's what the circuit diagram said!
aussz: deep dish is another story, as heaps of olive oil and cast iron are far more forgiving
rrtycoon2: The only EE experience I have is one class in getting my ME degree...
MrJWhit: Ian I'm very jealous of your nice wiers
iris_of_ether: No worries, just wondering if anyone knew :)
MrJWhit: *wires
Raiger: Sounds good aussz :D
Arclight_Dynamo: So what's the final assembly plan on this? 3D print a case? Solder the parts together then hot glue it into a wad?
Raiger: @rrtycoon2 same...unfortunately I keep having to talk to RF engineers in my work and whoo boy...trying to get answers from them can be rough...

MrJWhit: It was reading a negative voltage
iris_of_ether: Oh! Got it. Cherrypicking your parts :)
Lord_ZYRK: A cursory glance online makes it sound like JFETs are good because they're easy to use and introduce very little noise
iris_of_ether: Thank you @Lord_ZYRK :)
Beefpants: I need a new 2nd multimeter mine caught fire
MrJWhit: Caught fire? What the hell? What did you do?
Beefpants: unexpected flyback voltage
Lord_ZYRK: this article in particular gets more into the. . . well, particulars
Too_Many_Knives: yikes
DoodlestheGreat: Ah, the old JFET amplifier. Brings back my days in school.
Roadhog123: I assume you don't have crocodile clip leads for your multimeter?
iris_of_ether: My face at 'unexpected flyback voltage' = O_O
Anexmedia: Oh dang, that one's very consistent
UWDJohn: JFETs are good for audio input stages as their next to no input current makes the resultant noise low.
Anexmedia: a Horner Wah custom would be lovely
felrender: what I know about electronics could just about fit on an unfolded napkin but I'm always interested in technical streams like these
serramarkov: I love that pen.
ritchards: please tell me there is at least a Titlyhouse emote for that Pop.
Anexmedia: Also when I saw the title of the stream I thought you were building a Guitar Pre-amp, and was expecting a lot more vacuum tube
MrJWhit: If you have any questions felrender, feel free to ask!
DoodlestheGreat: Ha, I'd send you all of my leftover electronic bits if it'd get to you in time.
iris_of_ether: Yeah, my experience is DC-DC switching regulators, with predesigned controller chips. So I've had no reason to do anything with JFETs. Thanks folks!

SajuukSjet: it's not like you have the failsafes in place to stop the judgement, ian! :P
Beefpants: I try to understand whatever circuit I'm building. I don't always succeed but I can try again next time.
iris_of_ether: "Low noise? No. ALL NOISE." *slams down comedy-sized MOSFET and nasty switching square waves*
MrJWhit: I just slam every resistor in my multimeter to get the exact value (excluding those super small resistors)
TheMerricat: I don't think it was Ian's but I will still fondly remember the drill powered spice grinder they used in one LRL. :D
Anexmedia: Cat12 is always 11 out of 10

Ballistic_Meatball: @control_rig what are the first two if safety is third?

freeridercam: mouser . ca ftw
Beefpants: I found testing jfets so tedious
Lord_ZYRK: Electronics bootlegging is *biiig* business
rrtycoon2: Fun that these macro ones are so variable, yet a processor has billions of mass printed ones working together.
MrJWhit: I don't know audio stuff, why are there two voltage ins? I thought it would just be one audio track in.
ContingentCat: people lying on the internet? Never
Master_Gunner: counterfeit electronics are all over the place, by my understanding
serramarkov: Hope any Kiwis in chat are safe!
Arclight_Dynamo: 1.068
LurkerSpine: 068
Anexmedia: Measure twice, solder once
Raiger: What could possibly go wrong :D
LadyAiluros: you need a magnetic whiteboard for them
rrtycoon2: Perhaps bag and label the pairs.
iris_of_ether: But yeah, counterfeits can be everything from actual fakes to beta parts to scrap parts to failed parts and more. x_x
Anexmedia: new TTSF project: whiteboard coated desk
TheMerricat: Anyone else ever have to resort to using nail polish to mark parts?
MrJWhit: I just draw circles on paper and put the parts down there
Aygar: Do you have to worry about the linearity of the jfets?
UWDJohn: @MrJWhit it's likely a balanced input, as opposed to single ended. i.e. one end goes positive, the other goes negative.
Beefpants: whiteboards are surprisingly expensive
NotCainNorAbel: Should probably re-test that second one; maybe it wasn't seated well?
SnackPak_: I use scotch tape to keep things in order
iris_of_ether: FBtouchdown

DeM0nFiRe: Askmaster was great
LadyAiluros: i have an idea to take a small witheboard like they use in schools, ise Actual Paint to divide it and glue magnets in the sections
DrakoniteStreams: you guys definitely need to do more askmaster
LadyAiluros: put tiny things on magnets, label them on whiteboard
Lord_ZYRK: As with most things manufactured in places that don't give two shits about other countries' IP rights, it's really easy to manufacture to quota for whatever big player paid you to set up a manufacturing line, sell them what they ordered, then switch over to cheaper materials and lower your QC standards and keep pumping stuff out to sell at a higher profit margin
delta__vee: FBtouchdown but with extra moiré
felrender: I have to say you folks absolutely NAILED askmaster
LordZarano: How about pill boxes?
Anexmedia: Hindsight, small silver sharpie to mark numbers would have been handy redundency
Arclight_Dynamo: I would very much like Askmaster to return.

Roadhog123: 838 840?
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> CheckPoint this week contains fruit, frogs, shovels... and maybe math? | Anyway it's CheckPoint time! | ||
iris_of_ether: Askmaster reminded me a lot of the Egg Drop segment in a prior LRL. (And I loved that enough to share it with multiple people and get them into LRR.)
LurkerSpine: that one still in line is 747 not 838
Driosenth: Best Match is the 1.02 and the 1.021
LadyAiluros: also enjoyed copious Gibb
Arclight_Dynamo: Egg Drop and "Make a breakfast from a food court" from the first LRL are both Askmasters in every way but name.
Too_Many_Knives: Isn't that the jumpy one?
rrtycoon2: Wasn't that the twitchy?
Driosenth: thanks excel sort
LurkerSpine: the two you picked are 838 and 840, but then you referred to 747 as 838
LurkerSpine: so you're good
RealGamerCow: Always use the same number of significant digits
greenkingwashere: where beej at
UWDJohn: I could be mistaken. But the source and drain might be swapped on the schematic. I don't see any voltage gain with it as is.
DrakoniteStreams: ddg ftw
DrakoniteStreams: black brown roy g biv == 0 1 2 3 4 ...
LordZarano: DuckDuckGo is the best
UWDJohn: bad beer rots our young guts but vodka goes well
gralvarek: These are two source followers right?
UWDJohn: could be.
DrakoniteStreams: resistor color codes are in rainbow order
TheMerricat: "Quote from: clintrubber on September 26, 2019, 12:24:21 PM So they swapped source & drain (shouldn't be a problem). Oops! Didn't notice that... Maybe it explains the strange noise behaviour. Although FET's are supposed to be symmetrical, it has been mentioned somewhere that the g-d junction, being polarized with a higher voltage than ususal, may create noise issues." - from the comments in the thread - but it's greek to me so...
iris_of_ether: Hmmm, interesting.
Arclight_Dynamo: On behalf of all the humanities majors in chat, allow me to say "Haha! Amp goes 'brrrrrrr!'"
Oohlgrist: building a pre-amp, heck yeah
Qvdv: Is it strange that I'm really captivated by what the video (encoding?) is doing to Ian's shirt in the small cam?
TheMerricat: Further comment latter on from the poster of the schem "Looking at the photos now and re-checking the 2SK170 pinout, I think the D and S are swapped in my schematic, I think I made a mistake while drawing"
iris_of_ether: Brb - chat, make sure he doesn't set anything on fire! :D
LordZarano: Hopefully amp doesn't go brrrrr. Unless input signal goes brrrrr
UWDJohn: @LordZarano if input goes brrr, output goes BRRR!
Coil_Twitch_Bot: cheer100
Lord_ZYRK: Instructions unclear, D stuck in a breadbox
neoshingundam: howdy! rplLol
LordZarano: @UWDJohn Ha!
Driosenth: Odd suggestion, why not test to make sure it works with the next closest matched pair, once you know it works you can swap them with the best matched pair

gralvarek: On this breadboard do you need to connect both ground blocks?
TheMerricat: @driosenth turns out the person who posted the diagram swapped d and s and indicated so later in the thread they posted it on
Violentfrog: haven't done any circuits since a guitar compressor a year ago. getting the itch
Driosenth: Does it matter if it is closer to the mic or the receiver? I feel like one could introduce more noise due to impedance in the cable.
RandomTrivia: LUL

Arclight_Dynamo: Man, a guy building electronics and singing "Daisy, Daisy" always ends badly.
LurkerSpine: pretty sure that's public domain
couldntpickausername: in coming clips alert
DrakoniteStreams: you'd want it close to the mic because it is breaking the grounding on the cable shielding
DrakoniteStreams: or maybe you aren't?
Arclight_Dynamo: Does Beej know you're in here cutting up his cables?
DrakoniteStreams: I forget that xlr has both gnd pin and shielding
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Good. :D
Too_Many_Knives: heh
Driosenth: Daisy Bell's (Bicycle Built for Two) writer died in 1922, the death+80 rule means it entered public domain in 2002
UWDJohn: For noise pickup, it probably doesn't matter, but in general you'll want the preamp closer to the mic physically as it is the higher impedance signals (and more susceptible to disturbance)
Anexmedia: Pre-prep for solder exhaust is also a bonus
CptFranisDrake: we hopefully dont need to worry about HAL 9000
Anubis169: So fun story Ian, one of my friends used to work in a BBC newsroom crew way back in the day, and among the cables there was one which everybody was told "DO NOT TOUCH THIS" since it was the main one which carried the composite from the camera arrays to the rest of the studio...
Anubis169: now as a leaving prank, they covered this cable up and put an identical spare on top, and just before the 6 o'clock news was due to go live, one of the runners went up with a giant set of secateurs and (CHUK) cut this in two while he was watching
TheMerricat: till they realize the got the wrong cable :-p
Anexmedia: I would have made sure that cable was in another zip code before cutting the fake, just to be careful
Anubis169: oooo rainbow ribbon cables
DrakoniteStreams: knowing how much studio video cables cost...
UWDJohn: heh. technically speaking, it's probably more important in this amp topology to have the resistors matched closely than the transistors.
Anubis169: "Just jam it on in there"
Driosenth: is the plural of molex moli or molus?
Arclight_Dynamo: I assume Ian's more certain his resistors are going to be close than his transistors.
Anubis169: Driosenth: is it latin-based?
Anubis169: !break

Anubis169: in before Ian gives an accidental 90dB gain on his voice and they hear him in Vancouver
UWDJohn: @Arclight_Dynamo should be, one of the stripes on the resistors denotes tolerance. 5% is common
LordZarano: What was the range of the transistors?
DrakoniteStreams: resistors tend to be much closer to their spec than other components. basically, we're really good at making resistors accurately
DrakoniteStreams: resistors fall on a bell curve, meaning most 5% resistors are actually within 1%
Arclight_Dynamo: @UWDJohn Ah, neat! I know next to nothing about this stuff. :D
cosmikmulder: hullo
Driosenth: @Anubis169 Molex was founded by Frederick August Krehbiel, a German, so I think Molex wouldn't change singular vs plural
Anubis169: ah ha
UWDJohn: @DrakoniteStreams I always heard that resistors are all made, measured, then binned in the appropriate tolerance category. So what you buy for 5% is the stuff that didn't pass the 1% tolerance for example.
Driosenth: oh, I don't like how that stripper is cutting into the insulation. I think it's jaw might be too tight
UWDJohn: So that the bell curve for 5%'ers has big hole in the middle.
Hewdra: Many of us would probabbly colloquialise it into Molexe if I'm perfectly honest lmao
62MGcobra: now thats a bread board
Hewdra: as the plural
LordZarano: Building this on a breadboard eh? Ha
fmerl: hah
LadyAiluros: NICE
Violentfrog: spicy
UWDJohn: AHH. About time!
LadyAiluros: Hakko
ContingentCat: ooo
fmerl: thought that might get there by today :D
Oohlgrist: wow that's a good one
compactdisco: VERY nice
Arclight_Dynamo: Ooh!
aquinas_0: that appears smile worthy :D
LadyAiluros: ohh that base
Arclight_Dynamo: That has an interesting connector.
fmerl: it is. I've had that model for... almost a decade now
LadyAiluros: variable temp?
fmerl: (or maybe the immediate predecessor)
fmerl: and it's served me very well
compactdisco: the 888D is so nice, absolutely love mine
Driosenth: Look at that connector, lots of amps can pass through those beefy pins
RandomTrivia: How long before anthropomorphised soldering iron fanart, do you think? lrrBEEJ

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, PrancerInflatableReindeer! (Today's storm count: 62)
techstorm45: looks like an xlr port lol
Estyl_: yeah
fmerl: ahh yeah, would recommend a chisel tip when you get around to it. and ofc there's more specialized tips available as well.
62MGcobra: i think you could plug that into my old receiver
StageMgrRob: I thought as much. Sorry if it was gone over earlier tonight.
Driosenth: I think this iron is 65W
fmerl: when the shirt on that guy causes compression to fry, that's a moire...
Oohlgrist: did it come with different tips?
UWDJohn: Just right.
Hewdra: just the tip? PogChamp
DrakoniteStreams: 750 is way too high
fmerl: oh yeah. it heats _fast_
Violentfrog: like my dad's old soldering gun. that thing got hot in like 3 seconds lol
fmerl: (it might be F by default)
Electrodyne: And you can do some pyrography with it on the next leathercraft stream :D
DrakoniteStreams: Ian, make sure to tin the hell out of that tip before using it the first time]
Driosenth: Ian, any feelings towards Fry's Electronics closing?
62MGcobra: 750 F maybe.... lrrWOW
DrakoniteStreams: 750F is way too high
Athelgar: that shirt looks so cool lol
Too_Many_Knives: Wow that thing just eats solder
DrakoniteStreams: 350-400F is the recommended range for 60/40 and 63/37 solder
Oohlgrist: is that lead-free solder?
LordZarano: If it was 750C then it would be glowing red
Manae: So someone better at circuit analysis, I may have missed this: how does this amplify the signal? Is it causing whatever you have the mic plugged in to to send more power than it would if it went directly to the mic without the amp?
Caffine1138: Doesnt look like it from that Warning Icon @Oohlgrist
UWDJohn: @drakonite that may be good for reflow ovens, but irons you need to be way higher for the solder flow.
UWDJohn: My iron is set to 750F and it's great!
RealGamerCow: I always worked with an 800F iron. Not good when touched to skin
DrakoniteStreams: @UWDJohn not if you take care of your iron tip. that is the recommended range as per solder manufacturers for hand soldering
UWDJohn: @DrakoniteStreams to each their own, of course! :)
Oohlgrist: I do like 325C for 60/40 solder
WalrusOntheCourt: Just jumped on - why not twist the two reds together with a cap for testing?
DrakoniteStreams: I stick in the 375-425 range for most stuff, depending on wire gauge, and then as high as 450-500 if dealing with a ground plane
LordZarano: Re Ian's shirt: "When a grid's misaligned With another behind That's a moiré... When the spacing is tight And the difference is slight That's a moiré..."
compactdisco: I normally keep mine at 450
RandomTrivia: @LordZarano *polite applause*
Violentfrog: bravo
fmerl: @lordzarano okay that was better than mine
UWDJohn: @manae the thing that you plug this circuit into has a biasing circuit (phantom power) allow the transistors to operate
62MGcobra: i can barely solder speaker wire together let alone electronics parts. i need to practice more before i do an ardrino project
TheSoundOfWhiteNoise: Isn't it cramping my style?
Arclight_Dynamo: "It really cramps my ass."
DrakoniteStreams: @62MGcobra speaker wire is a pain
ritchards: yeah, typically "cramping"
Qvdv: I think everyone notices, what you're finding out is who's willing to say something about it
Manae: @UWDJohn Ah, so there is external power coming in, the ins and outs aren't purely to the mic and receiving hardware?
62MGcobra: @DrakoniteStreams oh so its not just me lol
RandomTrivia: Thermodynamics pls
Qvdv: did we forget to turn on the physics before we started?
DrakoniteStreams: @62MGcobra nope. it's usually covered in a layer of corrosion, a massive heatsink, and a crappy metal that doesn't like solde
RandomTrivia: Something about the Tilty House must cause the physics to load incorrectly
Capt_clown: Physics are only in the DLC pack
UWDJohn: @manae more like the phantom power is PART of the receiving power / input stage.
62MGcobra: @DrakoniteStreams last time i also did not use flux so ever forward never learning
Sethalidos: stupid questyion but is it in Fareheit instead of Celcius
DrakoniteStreams: do you got flux for that wire?
Manae: @UWDJohn I guess that would be where my EE is too weak to intuitively grasp what's going on
Too_Many_Knives: @Sethalidos Canada is weird with its units, being so close to the US we use their units a lot.
fmerl: there's definitely a setting to swap it to C, btw
Bobtheninjagoldfish: just got back, is this the new soldering gun?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: or iron I guess
fmerl: fwiw I usually have mine set around 600
fmerl: and I only occasionally burn everything
RealGamerCow: Honest question, why pussyfoot around with lower temps?
fmerl: it's easiest to fry parts if you're on higher temps, basically
LordZarano: @Bobtheninjagoldfish Now I'm imagining a device like a gluegun but for solder
UWDJohn: yeah, your never going to be satisfied with the results at these lower temps IMHO
DrakoniteStreams: high temps are when you damage components, pcb, and the soldering iron tip itself
KeytarCat: Oh look, a mold of my teeth
Sethalidos: hey our system of measurement that is based on completely arbitrary things makes perfect sense LUL
Lord_ZYRK: Pretty straight chompers, KeytarCat
KeytarCat: I have problems :P
62MGcobra: maybe use a torch. if its good enough for a plumber its gotta be good for this kind of work. ;P
62MGcobra: :p
DrakoniteStreams: >_<
KeytarCat: Heavy orthodontia bills in my childhood
ContingentCat: @KeytarCat a mold done by a dentist or yourself?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: are you going to heatshrink any of this, Ian?
fmerl: I've soldered some wires with a plumber's torch in a real pinch. ... I can't recommend it, but, I mean... it is possible
KeytarCat: My actuall teeth have a flat line in the front because overbite as a kid
KeytarCat: Full-monty hall problem
Lord_ZYRK: I've soldered wires not directly with a torch, but a torch was involved
ContingentCat: @KeytarCat huh, I had extensive dental work done as a kid too but they didn't give me the molds, I might have been better about my retainer if I could see the before state
DrakoniteStreams: I keep telling people those ts soldering irons are not that great...
johnny: I call this the Moiré shirt
johnny: Nice
fmerl: yeah I was concerned it might damage the Ian BrandTM to have the right tool for the job, but I figure if it's just one tool it's not too bad :)
RandomTrivia: I think the goldfish needs that back...
DrakoniteStreams: moire!
control_rig: You are 100% not wrong
ContingentCat: when the stripes hit your eyes like a big mess of lines that's a moiré
Juliamon: Animaniacs were great but they didn't have TMBG
control_rig: I miss Tiny Toons
Bobtheninjagoldfish: you are wrong.
johnny: Decided to watch your show as I make teriyaki sauce
fmerl: when the lines intertwine in a pattern serpentine, that's a moire
Capt_clown: Tiny Toons set the stage for Animaniacs
niccus: tiny toons was catchy but in retrospect not much of it is good
SnackPak_: close enough
Bobtheninjagoldfish: I'm 100% Animaniacs. tbh.

DrakoniteStreams: wait, is the mic side supposed to be grounded or NOT grounded?
Driosenth: I believe it is common gnd
Capt_clown: But the real question is do you have the higher ground?
RealGamerCow: I don't hear any difference between overhead and shotgun

Driosenth: record siri responding to a query?
Myles3190: what are we doing tonight?
DrakoniteStreams: there is no AGC running is there?
UWDJohn: just compared a constant whistle with the amp and with out. Should give you a steady level to compare
ContingentCat: @Myles3190 adding a pre-amp to a mic
Driosenth: nothing
fmerl: don't examine the audiophiles too closely, they don't hold up to scrutiny
Driosenth: nope, mono for me
ritchards: mono
techstorm45: nah, they're both outputting mono
Arclight_Dynamo: I don't think we get stero on Twitch.
ContingentCat: Twitch can do stero, it comes up occationally on Brave New Faves
SnackPak_: Yeah, I could swear we've heard stereo on BNF
Qvdv: using items as intended, that's preposturous
NotCainNorAbel: Pretty sure that Tarkov has had stereo as well.
RandomTrivia: There's probably a setting in OBS and other broadcasting software
Arclight_Dynamo: ^
SnackPak_: that makes sense
UWDJohn: @fmerl agreed. Especially that we're introducing raw gain without a change in frequency response
ContingentCat: I hate when you want only a few of a thing but it's drastically cheaper to buy 50
Lord_ZYRK: If anybody tells you you have too many diodes, tell them they have too many teeth DansGame
DrakoniteStreams: diodes are great to have spares on hand though

drdudeman: so if the radio isnt plugged in my multi-function screen doesnt work.
drdudeman: which means to climate control
drdudeman: or hybrid battery indicator
TheMerricat: at it's base resoldering wick is just a fine copper wire mesh that's got a huge amount of rosin flux in it. the idea is when you touch it to molten solder it soaks it up rather than the components

TheMerricat: as a professional streamer, I'm guessing he's going to use it on his current streaming setup
Arclight_Dynamo: They ought to cost about $15.
Lord_ZYRK: drdudeman hesitant about what exactly?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: oh Ian, BTW, I've been saying HI I'M DAISY all day because of your intro on CTS last night.
drdudeman: @Lord_ZYRK Never stripped a wire or wired anything before.

RandomTrivia: Learning is a strong word, and there's still time :D
RandomTrivia: We have every faith in you Ian.
fmerl: no need for heat shrink when you can just wrap everything in far too much electrical tape afterwards
TheMerricat: I say we just epoxy pot the whole thing when done ;)
Arclight_Dynamo: Nice.
RandomTrivia: clean
Raiger: Gotta get that IP rating with the potting compound!
sirspate: a circuit diagram encrypted with rot-s/d
fmerl: depending on your jfets s/d are actually interchangable
fmerl: but not these ones, I don't believe
RandomTrivia: ew
Too_Many_Knives: Hate getting braided wires through holes
sirspate: you could always label it..
sirspate: or does marker not adhere?
iris_of_ether: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
Qvdv: I don't want that song stuck in my head either
malfunct subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 86 months!
malfunct: man, I really hate stripping cable like that
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, malfunct! (Today's storm count: 70)
Jim02762: This is going into a project box? How are the cables going through the box?
sirspate: I'd be tempted to take a drill and widen the hole
malfunct: premade cables are the way to go if they exist for your project
malfunct: machines assemble them so much better than we humans do
vk_dragontech subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 44 months!
vk_dragontech: Wowie 44 already huh.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, vk_dragontech! (Today's storm count: 71)
iris_of_ether: You say that but that's not necessarily true for winding transformers :D
UWDJohn: could consider getting some PCB's fabbed via OSHPark? (Other manufactures are available) It's pretty short money.
malfunct: What if you aren't feeling particularly good at thinking or working right now? (its been a long day)
sirspate: I have a Dreamcast serial cable that's just a cut cable with a board in the middle wrapped in packing tape. Who needs a project box?
malfunct: you need a couple of extra hands to get that done
malfunct: just pot the circuit in a brick of resin and it will last you forever
corefluxx: Why not get a helping hands?
fmerl: @uwdjohn jlcpcb is incredibly inexpensive now, and you can even get SMT assembly cheap, so you could do tiny boards with SMT resistors and then just have to match jfets & add them and wire in xlr
malfunct: fmerl indeed, I wouldn't use proto board like this again, it takes more time but it is much easier to design a PCB and order it
DrakoniteStreams: everyone needs a set of the cheap helping hands
UWDJohn: @fmerl I've used jlcpb with good success myself. Though I haven't taken advantage of their assembly. But I can solder SMT stuff effectively.
fmerl: strong agree on vice vs. helping hands
TheMerricat: I don't have the link open anymore but the thread that I am posted where you got this diagram that's exactly what they were doing they were getting PCBs designed and shipped to them
TheMerricat: I am = Ian even
couldntpickausername: Ian I got a mini vice for circuit boards a little while ago, it's great
couldntpickausername: I'll tweet it at you
UWDJohn: Just did a leadless QFN (.5mm pitch) yesterday.
malfunct: I designed a PCB for a project I did last year and it was absolutely worth learning how to use Eagle and order them. I will never go back to protoboard if I have a choice
fmerl: you're braver than I am
fmerl: re: leadless QFN
couldntpickausername: and tweeted
UWDJohn: Ian, You could stream designing a PCB with KiCAD or something.
malfunct: I think the next evolution of that project will be integrating the USB chip and microcontroller onto the single PCB rather than doing it as an arduino shield.
UWDJohn: That would be in the spirit of the show I reckon.
sirspate: happy little solder clouds
Arclight_Dynamo: The real galaxy-brain content for TTSF is to design a cuircuit in using Lego pieces. Kappa
malfunct: yeah, if you are using other people's designs and just ordering it built there isn't much to stream
UWDJohn: That's fair.
iris_of_ether: lrrHORN lrrHORN
UWDJohn: remember the Sources and grounds might ring as a short as it's only 68ohms
sirspate: solder bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down..
Bobtheninjagoldfish: SPeaking of LEGO, A while ago the maids that clean my house (I'm disabed so I pay a firm to help) broke one of my LEGO Kits, and I just got the replacement parts in so this weekend I get to get a beer and rebuild the Astin Martin DB5
fmerl: I'm always amazed that they managed to get an ejection seat that works as well as that one does into that kit @bobtheninjagoldfish
RandomTrivia: @Bobtheninjagoldfish That sounds like a "boo-ray" feeling
Bobtheninjagoldfish: @RandomTrivia eh, Accidents happen. and they are paying for the replacement parts so I'm not all that miffed. also I get to build a cool lego kit again.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: @fmerl Right? and The bulletproof sheild too
ContingentCat: the future is now!
zuchen_120: electron's like...hey, we've got donuts...
Arclight_Dynamo: "Electrons are very small."
NotCainNorAbel: @Bobtheninjagoldfish How is that kit? I really enjoyed the Bonsai kit recently. I felt like the dinosaur fossils had a lot of repeated elements.
DeM0nFiRe: No audio
corefluxx: nope
NotCainNorAbel: nothing
RandomTrivia: Nothing
62MGcobra: nope
Lord_ZYRK: Can't hear shit, captain
Arclight_Dynamo: No voice. Crackle.
person322: a whole lotta nothin
TheMerricat: oh dear
LordZarano: 🔇
SnackPak_: phantom power?
NotCainNorAbel: mic power?
RandomTrivia: But there was a faint crackle
Bobtheninjagoldfish: @NotCainNorAbel I really like it. but then again there are very few Lego kits I build that aren't enjoyable.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: also I'm a big James Bond fan so...
Bobtheninjagoldfish: the only really disappointing thing in the DB5 kit is the lack of a Bond Minifig
NotCainNorAbel: @Bobtheninjagoldfish I do like most kits as well. Maybe I'll pick it up place to put it right now but maybe when I go back into my office.
NotCainNorAbel: I would think any minifig would be hard since which Bond do you pick?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: given that it is the car from Goldfinger, connery. Or Do like they do with the ghostbusters sets and give you all the Ghostbusters
NotCainNorAbel: fair fair
Bobtheninjagoldfish: speaking of which I also have the new ECTO-1 waiting too
tipulsar85: Is this a transistor or vactube preamp?
iris_of_ether: JFET transistor
fmerl: you do have a meter right there; could just test the battery :)
corefluxx: Ah Kirkland... always but batteries by the gross
Too_Many_Knives: How much would that weigh?
tipulsar85: Fresh AA battery, not from Bellevue.
Bobtheninjagoldfish: nothing
TheMerricat: crackle but nothing else
corefluxx: Got some noise.. but not voice
RandomTrivia: Fzzzt
DiscordianTokkan: mawp
UWDJohn: intermittent connection?
RandomTrivia: No signal but some fuzz
DiscordianTokkan: (Well, the speaker equivalent, I'm glad I'm not on headphones)
Arclight_Dynamo: That's a lot like what it sounded when you pulled the ground.
Arclight_Dynamo: *sounded like
NotCainNorAbel: sounds similar to when the ground was pulled
NotCainNorAbel: @Arclight_Dynamo lrrAWESOME
TheMerricat: so it's weird that it worked before we put it on the prep board
Arclight_Dynamo: @NotCainNorAbel Eeeey! :D
UWDJohn: shucks
CptFranisDrake: i wonder if theres a short
TheMerricat: phone auto correct sucks
iris_of_ether: Thank you for the stream :)
iris_of_ether: I'm sorry about your short and/or opens
tipulsar85: Rest well Ian.
RandomTrivia: We want it to work WELL
RandomTrivia: lrrBEEJ
NotCainNorAbel: It is working badly lrrBEEJ
xantos69: cheer50 Bits for Ian!
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
DiscordianTokkan: Thanks for the stream!
TheMerricat: this _is_ a try channel
malfunct: what iron are you using?
UWDJohn: hakko
corefluxx: Cheer100
RandomTrivia: We certainly "Let's Tried" today
malfunct: UWDJohn oh nice, I love hakko irons
62MGcobra: just wait
UWDJohn: happy to help!
Banrael: cheer300 I got here late, but vod time!
NotCainNorAbel: Pride500 - Fun time, reminded me of my electronics classes. good times, good times.
62MGcobra: there it is
62MGcobra: i have a way
