Good evening Josh,

We will be at Handle Gallery in North Park Mall for one more week through the 20th of August.  If you come down on the 20th let me know what time so Gary and I can be at the gallery - would like to see your work up close.

Josh - got your e mail this morning - just got home from church and headed to the shop to work on some builds - if you would send me your direct e mail so i can get in touch rather than through here - I know I had it at one time but am unable to come up with it at present - will be glad to answer your questions and give you some thoughts and input

Hey Josh, I saw your comment about the LM386 amp circuit...I've built a number of them, and so I added a pic of the schematic here. One tip, it's a good idea to use an 8-pin IC socket and solder it to the perfboard to keep the heat of soldering from damaging the IC. Just pop the 386 into the socket afterwards.

Voltage ratings on the 10uF and 220uF capacitors can either be 16v or 25v (or whichever you prefer).

Happy building.

Hi Josh

The corners were cut from the sheet shownon this photo.If you anneal the brass it makes it easier to bend (heat it up until it is dull red and allow to cool slowly)

They were bent over a hardwood block held in a vice. I used thin gauge brass so it could be bent with just finger pressure then dressed with a hammer to sharpen up the folds.(polish the hammer face first to reduce marking)
