Thank you CFish! Santa has some goodies packed up and ready to send your way, CFish! Ooooh, and some of them are 3D printed!

Les

Would really like to thank Les for the awesome Christmas package.

The functional 3D printed planetary gear set is the Christmas conversation peace here.

My early short lived career as an auto mechanic led to a tutorial on how an automatic transmission works that had everybody listening.

It takes close to a day's time (8 hours or really 6 hours plus setup and cool down intervals) to print one of those, even with the big nozzle (0.8mm diameter). And I usually spend all that and more time printing stuff and people do appreciate it but not much, as they compare it to injection molded items that cost pennies. i'm very happy to learn that this item is being greatly appreciated.

In fact, I'll tell you what. If things go well here, and they should, I'll have use of my 3D printer next year as well. That being the case, if you send me SASE boxes I'll fill them with such goodies! We can discuss and exchange knowledge of what is good to make for synth and other reasons - grandkid's projects, prototype of kid's biz efforts, gifts for the wife - whatever suits you. We'll make it a tradition to trade boxes for stuff and if I can figure out a way, I can buy the stamps myself (I think I have a way) and I have already gotten the boxes from USPS in the mail before, so that is all that is needed so no need for SASE box even now that I think of it.

You can send stuff and I'll send stuff. It will be a new tradition!

Les

Thanks so much Alanp.

Mini Moog boards arrived today. Will be my first project with prefab boards.

Hope it don't ruin me for perfboard projects. 😀

Hi alanp and all,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank alanp in particular and all of our community in general for this thread and the environment in which we can coexist as friends.

Specifically I am referring to Cfish and his new friendship with myself. We are really having fun working on the credit card synth project. It's so cool and it fills a market niche that appears to have some merit to it. Working with Cfish is like running a sprint and falling behind because he is SO FAST at developing these simple synth boards!

Not only that, but it is easy to tell from his work usage and grammar and the like that Cfish is a blue collar man down to the bone. I mean that as a high compliment, that he can have a modest education and then leave me with all my MSEE and BSEE and work experience, in the dust designing these synth boards.

Don't worry, it's layout time and I'll gain some territory there lol. Can't have this project be a one-person show eh? But it all originated from alanp's thread, his generosity by example that really made the grade! So thanks alan and thanks to all. Let's make 2017 a year to remember!

Les

Thanks for your kind words Les. This project sings to my strengths.

Your EE knowledge has made my part so much easier. Without it I would have done a cool little project and moved on.

Most people would never see the since in the way we can spit ball a 100 attention deficit ideas at the same time and turn around with a great, focused idea.

Everybody's creative thinking is different, but ours work together pretty well.

Somehow patterns emerge from the chaos. Very Happy
