but I wanted to say that this was my first electronics kit assembly project since my days of building Heathkit radios in the 70s. Very good instructions online and "pretty good" bill of materials.
I found it extremely helpful to run the tests outlined in the assembly instructions and to also verify resistor values using my multimeter during assembly. Believe me that even though I can still read color codes on resistors the colors are not always consistent it it helps to "double-check" them before placement.
I wish my multimeter had the ability to measure capacitance and in the one instance the inductor which came with the kit I am 95% confident that I placed the correct values in their corresponding locations. As such I'd recommend purchasing the Adafruit "Extech EX330 12-function autoranging multimeter" ( http://www.adafruit.com/products/308
) or similar so I might just be making such a purchase in the near future.
Though I can still "see" pretty well I had the forethought to purchase a magnifying visor to help me. Though I considered the Adafruit "OptiVisor - head-mounted magnifier - MV5" it lacked some features I found more useful in ones that had LED lighting and jeweler's loops. These can be found on eBay.
Without a vise to hold the PCBs during assembly made it a little awkward but I was successful. I'd consider the Adafruit "Panavise Jr. - PV-201" ( http://www.adafruit.com/products/151
) but don't know at this time if it's large enough for the job. The Xytronix "Adjustable 30W 110V soldering iron - XY-258 110V" ( http://www.adafruit.com/products/180
) sold by Adafruit turned out to be an excellent investment. The tip selection available elsewhere will make this a great choice for other types of assembly projects.
All in all it was a fun project and will consider the GPS and display dimming mods as updates to this clock.
