Just finished the Mini-Me build to a testable point and enclosed – minus the enclosure graphics finishing. And I employed the “Mini-Me Depth Mod”. Before the mod, the trimmer pot was just fine at just a hair left of center. However, when I added the Depth Mod, I noticed some light “ticking” in the output, presumably from the clock. I adjusted the trimmer a tad more to the left and the “ticking” went away. Yay!
This is a very slick modification and a tip-o-the-hat to Wilkie1 for the write-up on it. This simple mod greatly enhances the versatility of the Mini-Me. I highly recommend it.
Here’s the enclosure before finishing:
And here’s the complimentary gutshot:
I wanted to squeeze it all into 125B \ 1590B enclosure, but the Depth Mod that impossible. Still, I’m quite happy with this result. Once the enclosure graphics are finished, I’ll make a full build report in the proper forum section. Thanks for reading!
Thanks Billy! Good find on the MN3007 chips. I hope you got them at a good price. SmallBear still has a small stock of them, but at 11 zorkmids each, I’m not likely to try and stock any. Let us know how your builds go and show them off.
