    Forgot to keep my mask on, and got infected by the paisley virus again.

    Going to try something different. A little bit on, but mostly off the beaten path

    I'm quite happy with this, given I do not have a drill press

    looks like it only has a shellac type finish, too easy...:)

    ....now a few more wipes of stain before shellac over the top to color match this thing as best I can....

    Working on one more "matchbox" fuzz, the 6th one I've done from antique matchbox art. 125B enclosures are just about the same size.
    This box art is about 70 years old, scanned pretty well. The circuit is the FuzzDog clone of the Catalinbread Hyperpak, which is a lot like a Tube Sound Fuzz or Red Llama CMOS distortion.

    These are the others, a silicon Tone Bender (Swan), Harmonic Percolator (Ohio), Peppermill (Birds Eye), Sunny-T (Searchlight) and Maestro FZ-1 (Safe Home)

    now I see it works, I think i'll do this to a nicer body that I have glueing up and whack a single hb in the bridge.

    Monocular vision sucks. Be extra careful with the power tools, your depth perception is likely sub-optimal.

    Hope it heals soon!

    Thank you Roger!
    I got the idea when camping with our Scout troop, there was a box of matches on the table next to a lantern, and I thought, gee that size looks familiar!
    I found the first antique box, scanned it and used it on the Harmonic Percolator. Then it became a challenge to find older and older boxes. The Safe Home box is from the 1930's, later ones were different and didn't say "non-poisonous"! Except for the contemporary Swan box (which are smaller, that's why the 1590 rather than a 125B), they all date from the 40s and 50s.

    Yes, that's absolutely correct...and it's a bit maddening! If you've ever been in the water with a swim mask that's filled with (cloudy) water, that's kinda where my vision on the right is for awhile until the gas bubble is absorbed by the body and replaced with fluid.

    Fortunately, the things I need to do right now are mostly on the CNC and for a few small operations on one project that involve cutting with blades, I'll be working very slowly. This kind of thing really points out what a blessing our eyesight is!
