PCB assembly - BAG1

The exact order of assembly will depend on the preference of the builder but convention is to fit the resistors/diodes first followed by capacitors, transistors and ICs in that order.

You'll need a good pair of micro wirecutters, a screwdriver for case assembly, fine sandpaper, 300 and 600+ grit emery paper, metal polish and a 15-25W or temperature regulated soldering iron with a good bit which tins easily (many Chinese cheapos have poor quality bits which will refuse to tin and make poor thermal contact, leaving you gouging at the PCB trying to melt the solder).

Before starting assembly check if you have an extra 470R resistor (Yellow purple brown) or 680R (blue grey brown) - if so fit it in the place marked R18. If not, fit a wire link (resistor leg offcut) there instead.

After preparing a suitable working space take the PCB and the 10x 680K resistors (blue-grey-yellow) 560k (green blue yellow) or 2m2 (red red green). Fit these in locations marked for R3,4,5,8,9,20,21,23,24 and 26 as shown:

Re: PCB assembly - BAG1

Fit the 11x 1N4148 diodes in locations marked for D8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,18,19 as shown: **NOTE** the band marked on the end of the diode body must face the same way as shown in the photograph, this is also indicated on the PCB with a thick white band.

Re: PCB assembly - BAG1

Fit the brown 10n (marked 103) ceramic capacitors in locations marked for C1,4 and 22 as shown - DO NOT fit one in the space marked C23, that isn't needed:
