Oh I agree. I've got two enclosures half done. And, then there's collecting the knobs, switches, jacks, screws, etc. . . all of which involve drilling and soldering combined with some form of headstand manuever. Personally, I've had a lot of ideas for enclosures, but the idea that looked easiest wasn't, due to more than a week of sanding.

Perhaps of there was an enclosures / case work forum, collective effort may resolve several easy ways to make enclosures?

Battery ran down on the digital multimeter, didn't want to drive to the store, found some old batteries, and then I went to measure them; but, unfortunately the battery was down on the digital multimeter. . . impasse.

P.S.
Went for the circa 1979 analog multimeter (voltmeter section doesn't consume battery power) and it was reasonably informative about the batteries. I'm glad I kept that old meter. Otherwise the situation would have been ridiculous.
I wonder what the kids do?--keep 2 DMM's and hope the batteries never go down at the same time?

It wasn't designed for unexpected S&M applications.
The ClipNipper is an (over) voltage activated audio compressor for facilitating clipless replay of highly dynamic music on small scale solid state amplifiers. It also helps amplifiers cope with virtual digital instrument midi applications for music production. See also Volumax. In a pinch, it could be used at a radio station although it doesn't have as many features or as much effect as modern radio station units. It also doesn't make that typical compressor "YAAA!!" sound or any sound of its own. Recently, Elvee published a nicely transparent Tringlophone/JLH version, at post #58 of the ClipNipper thread for headroom management with 11 watt Class A amplifiers. It is also possible to create a preamp version that restrains (overly) loud TV commercials.

Choosing parts!

I am one of those people who spends months obsessing over what parts to choose for the BOM of the project before any work gets done.

I am looking forward to doing the chasis for the BA-3 I have been planning... making the chasis means its almost done

Not having a workshop/workspace. I have about 40x40cm space to put project parts on, which is threatened by the possibility of aquiring a kitchen machine with meat grinder (my ultimatum, I want to make proper sausages if my workshop is to be condemned. There is no real food here in this part of the country, even burgers they manage to make unappealing.), the kitchen table is my workbench IF my amazing wife can take the kids out for the day, which hardly ever happens.

I'm fully interested in acquiring this device and or kit. Will look it up. I want to use it for a HLLY 0.05w TV Transmitter project and for an AM Radio station project.
