  • Slick little kit, works well, but there are some key points that took some work and reading to figure out about it.
    A: The parts list (not included in the kit) does not match the parts bag. The notes in the assembly instructions (also not included) don’t line up with the board or parts bag.
    B: The assembly instructions themselves are greatly lacking.
    C: Useful notes if you’re building this kit: Install the lone diode at position D3, and a jumper at D4. If you use the power jack, you do not have to install J3 (it’s also used for applying power, but is not required). Bolting the VR and heatsink to the board may short the heatsink against a pass-through. Finally, you may want/need to trim the flange on the 3 button caps nearest the LCD, so they don’t hang up against the LCD.

No public wish lists :(
