How I miss soldering, not! Actually, it’s kind of theraputic.
The panel for defender arrived earlier this week and I’ve mounted the potentiometers and begun soldering wires.
Each pot now has it’s 0V and +5v supply rail, Next I’ll be mounting the LEDs and switches onto strip board and the panel.
I’ve got some stand-off’s coming from Rapid Electronics to help mount the PCBs properly, so I can’t do much more until they arrive next week, but it’s nice to see things coming together.

As you can see, it uses the same switches as I used on the earlier version. Though this time they’re green, as are the LEDs. Blue LEDs are so 1999
