    Does this site have a minimum post count before upload requirement?

    Make sure that the images don't exceed the file size limit. If they do, they won't appear.

    Try shrinking it down to about 600 pixels wide and try again.

    You can also pack them as a zip file, which renders them 100% compatible for DL and shrinks them slightly.

    Neat. Could you link to the project documentation?

    I assume you had a thread going along with this project? That's what I was asking for--a link to the thread.

    Or do you just have the photos? If you only have photos, it would be awesome if you could also post your schematic, and a brief writeup about the process (what inspired you, what obstacles you encountered, and how you overcame them).

    I see the photos, they work fine. I'm wondering if you could do a brief writeup about your project.

    !

    These attachments were asked for by Brutus as I had asked for his help whilst constructing a voice mod for a Dalek I have built. These pics are photos of the PCB that I put together using the manual for the voice modulator(version 2.07)
    that is up in Project Dalek Forum.
    I do have pictures of the Dalek but I am most interested in getting these up for Brutus or whoever might be interested ,so I can correct any errors that I might have made while putting the PCB together.

    Ah, I misunderstood the purpose of this thread. I thought you were showing off a completed project, not asking for help with it. Sorry about that.

    I forgot to let interested parties know that I I have spent many hours over the last few months checking for obvious mistakes (shorts, opens, reversed polarity, cold solder joints etc.). But to no avail. When I did power up the unit, I did get a slight buzzing at the speaker, but no response to inputs from the mic.

    Hello,

    The Voice Mod is a voice modulator to have your voice sound like a Dalek from the Dr Who series.
    Fenris and I have been working on the circuit for some time on the Project Dalek forum.
    I have attached the V2.07 manual, with all the schematics and PCB drawing in it.

    This is the PM I got from Robo on the PDF, with the error:

    I will have a look at the pictures later.

    The first four pics are of the PCB in the box and the 5th one is a pic of the front of the box.

    I will now put up the last four which are out of the box pics.
    photo 1-7.JPG photo 2-4.JPG

    That's two!

    photo 3-4.JPG One more!

    photo 4-2.JPG

    This is #4!

    This is 274?

    I have finally got all four up. Seems my memory for how I did it last night was failing. Sorry to make such a mess but the four all all here but some on different replies.

    Hello,

    I have written some remarks on one of your pictures:

    I also have taken the PCB and parts placing from the manual:

    Perhaps the others do see other possible bad spots.

    PS does the humming change when you turn the modulation rate potentiometer?

    Is there a schematic that someone could post?

    The humming changes when I turn the volume control but it does not when I turn the modulation rate potentiometer.
