I have just finished my clock (I actually ordered one of the first batch but was missing a part (which adafruit shipped out post-haste) so I am now just getting around to finishing) and it seems to function fine.
However, when I went to assemble the enclosure I think I got stuck in stupid...
When I place the main PCB on the bottom plate, it hangs over the "front" leaving the switches et al slightly recessed from the "back". When I put the back piece in place, everything is too far recessed to be accessible. This also makes it impossible to mount the front plate as it butts up against the PCB itself. Okay, I think to myself, I am missing something obvious. I go back and look at the instructions which indicate the PCB can only be mounted on the bottom plate one way, and the imprinted instructions also give me clues as to which way it should go. I believe I have it correct.
So I take it apart and see if I have flipped something, and I can only attach the PCB to the bottom plate in the same manner I had attached it originally. Now I am worried that I am simple.
I checked the FAQ and the forum and only found one reference to the bottom plate:http://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=13546#p65799
The third comment in that thread says the PCB can actually attach one of four ways (the original problem in that post is NOT what I am describing here). I cannot for the life of me see how that can happen once the components are assembled. And yes, I actually did check to see if I had assembled the whole thing upside down (I did not).
Has anyone else had any issues like I am describing? I know I am breaking the cardinal rule and posting without a photo (which I can add later when I get home), but I think I just need confirmation that I am nuts and can't follow instructions.
