Fun little kit! Keeps time pretty much spot on, and was easy enough to put together. That said, I did have a few issues with the instructions though.
1) The polarity for the electrolytic capacitor wasn’t printed on the board I received. I was able to figure it out (it hasn’t blown up yet!) by looking at the picture in the instructions and tracing the circuit, but for a beginning kit you may want to make sure this is clearly marked.
2) Same issue as above with the buzzer. Silk screen doesn’t have polarity marking. I figured it wouldn’t matter much for the speaker, but just a heads up.
All-in-all, a really nice and quick-to-build kit. Now, I’m off to build a cool enclosure.
No public wish lists :(
