    How are people drilling their holes?



    I make precise drill templates, use a punch, make pilot holes with a dremel, enlarge using hand drill with a Unibit, but I'm STILL getting some "wander". I just can't get the hole to be EXACTLY where I need it to be. Do I just have to get a drill press?

          I'm using industrial double-sided tape in that one, yep. I dont think it's coming off anytime this century.



          for designs with bigger PCBs I bolt it to the back plate, though that makes it a wiring hassle.

                I know the answer is "use photoshop" but I don't have photoshop and even if i """ACQUIRED""" it I'd have no idea where to start...





                How do I make my decals? I know how to print and transfer them; just not how to do it on the computer!

                      Well, just """acquire""" it (ie. download the 30-days trial from their homepage) and play around with it. You should be able to get something usefull within a day or so. Until you can buy a brainchip with all PS skillz, you have to learn it by yourself. Or get GIMP, it is the freeware pendant to PS.

                      Basically, find a graphic you like on the pedal and add some text to it would be the quickest way to get a decal design

                        A guitar is one of the next thing on my DIY list. I really want to build a Fender La Cabronita inspired guitar.

                          Nice tips here. Plus there is a lot of nice tutorials around to learn how to use it.

                          You could also try to find some templates to start your design from, or just scan an enclosure to get the good size. (if you have access to a scanner of course)

                          • does photoshop have an easy way of setting it to 111x60 and finding points like 1/3, 2/3 along etc or do you have to work it out yourself and count the pixels?

                            • When you open a new PS document, it asks you for the dimensions. Or open a letter format preset if you want to work on a actual paper size. You can accurately define the coordinates of each text box, rectangle etc. There are also Smart Guides that help you aligning things
