well after getting some lovely parts in the post today from Si my RAT is moving along nicely!

I really could use a proper overhead light though,so I think that will be my next "big purchase"

also I've decided that in order to rap this one up pretty quickly I'm going to use the LuciBox enclosure I had planned to put the Double Bazz into

should look pretty cool in a TGP kinda way!  :/

Everything in it's right place...

Hmmm I'm not sure I'd get a factory Job with a work station like this!

so as you can see I finally got my Delivery from Banzai

I mostly went for switches/pots/LED'S + bezels/op-amps things that are fairly pedal specific 
I'd a credit note for maplins so I got a big pack of 600 resistors (unfortunately I'd say alot of the values won't be much use for pedals) and some Vero board from them
probably the most important thing I got from Banzai was the bit for drilling cases,so I'm definitely planning to drill and paint my own for those

my little collection is coming along quite nicely,I'm planning to stock up on more caps/diodes/trannies etc this week if I can flog a pedal to pay for it all!

I've a whole graveyard of Guitar parts in a big box that I'm planning to raid for wire,knobs, pots and jacks too
it's amazing how much builds up over the years so I'll be doing my best to recycle all that stuff

so far my biggest expense has definitely been tools such as the magnifier/clamp drill, multimeter,adjustable spanner,solder and wick all that stuff but sure I guess I should do it right if I'm going to do it at all! do I finish my parts Tele I was putting that JazzMaster pick-up into first?
,or do I get cracking on this stuff???
