[timewarp]atari punk console build[/timewarp]

ok, so it was January 8th 2010 and i decided to build my second atari punk console…
i had managed to forget about posting my first one on here, which i must have made around october, ooops!
here it is anyway:

here’s the innards – had to cover the metal parts so they didn’t conduct…

i think its a pretty brutal sounding beast, REALLY nasty!
not sure how much i actually like the sound of it, tbh. bloomin easy to put together though.
had a laugh putting it in the tin and wondering why it didn’t work properly…
oh, yeah, solder sitting on metal – that’s going to conduct electricity isn’t it.
so i wrapped it all up in masking tape and all is well.
snip: yep, here’s a post from when i built it: https://sync24.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/atari-punk-console-stuff/
it seems to switch itself off and back on a again after a short while, i don’t really care though, it has a life of its own.

anyway, the version above uses two 555 timing chips and i wanted to build my next one with the double version of the 555, whatever it’s called…
so below is about as far as i got before term started and things ground to a crawl, again.

i’ll get this finished at some point, i’m sure.
woo, yep, it has an LED on it too!
