It was this exact chip that drove me to the optometrist for the 1st time in 30 yrs after I tried to point-to-point one of these buggers.

I reckon the 3875 is gonna be my next project... I think i maybe jumped in a little deep with the 4780 as a first ever soldering project. Thats me tho!

However I'm not gonna give up on the 4780 coz i reckon it'll sound nice if it lives. I just need a smaller tip on my iron and some 10 x 50 bins.

I have borrowed my father-in-laws soldering iron.. Nice fine tip 25w, and he's a real electrician... Wow what a difference a good iron makes. I got a few more done before the googlie eyes set in.

Ordered some silver solder too.. might make it easier.

Glad i'm not in a hurry for an amp!

I would normally expect to solder stuff like this without serious eyestrain all day long, and at my age I'm both shortsighted and longsighted, so maybe he's right and you should take a trip to the doctor if only as a precaution.

Yes. Im good at seeing things in distance. Its the close up that doing me, maybe sitting in front of monitor since the ZX Spectrum was invented hasnt helped.

Damn, cost of a good kit or 2 for some glasses tho!

WooHoo finaly got it all soldered.. I think I just need more practice to get used to the close up working and the size of things. Getting better with the helping hands now.

I will try and get a couple of pics on so you guys can rip my soldering apart.. be gentle tho it is my first ever go.

Just gotta wait till I get some cash for transformer.. Then I can see if it all works. I have two transformers here but im not sure how to test output.

I have had a look at transformer... There are no visible markings to show output.

Its about 8 - 9 cm made by Bando but cant find anything about it. Any way to see what output it has without killing myself?

OK... here we go.. finaly got all of my stuff together... kit built.. nice enclosure... 300VA 2x22v transformer... silver plated copper wire and all my sockets and a pot for volume control.

All i need now is the bottle to actualy put it all together.. Checked my kit and cant see any obvious shorts on my soldering. Still sooooo damn nervous though, next post will be a yeehaa or a oooh aahhh.

Wish me luck!
