And I'm Off ...

I finally managed to sit down at my bench last night to actually start construction. The K2 consists of three major board-level modules, the Control Board, the Front Panel Board, and the RF Board. The control board is the first module to be assembled and I thought I would document the beginning of construction with a few photos.

Here are all the parts for the control board sorted out into an egg carton and a clear container that I picked up in someone's trash one day and just had to bring home . The second clear container (picked up on the same trash picking run) contains most of the parts from the K2's "Miscellaneous" bag (Click here for a bigger view of this).

And I couldn't resist (heh-heh) documenting my stuffing the first resistor of the construction project.
