GAPco list it on their site (http://www.gapco.co.uk/Tag-and-Turret-Boards/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) but it looks like they're out of stock.

I don't know how much it usually costs, is it normally so expensive? Some of their items are (DC jacks for £3.25... ), but having said that they do free (and fast!) delivery, and I can't find an alternative to their 'type F' enclosure anywhere. Which is quite reasonably priced anyway AFAIK. Overall good people I think.

Anyone selling a parallel universe kit? Especially the V1... Can't find it anywhere, and don't have the patience to buy parts

Damn, Small Bear wasn't playing around w/ my order. Placed sort of a convoluted, high item count, low volume order yesterday @ ~ 1PM EDT yesterday. Apparently it was out the door by 4:25PM same day and should be here tomorrow in time for some pedal hacking this weekend :w00t:

Hopefully the order I placed w/ Mammoth right afterwards won't lag too far behind...

Sourcing parts! Going to be jumping into the DIY game with a new job and some steady income.

Could use a little help! I'd really love to figure out which exterior parts Fairfield uses - the input jacks and power jack are fucking solid, but I can't figure out which parts and which manufacturers they come from. Also, earthquaker's bezels and their LED's are quite nice.

Thanks in advance dudes.

Not sure if these are the exact parts but the ones I have seem identical to the EQD bezels/white LEDs:

Thanks! I found many of the parts I was looking at after revisiting small bear's website.

You can buy garolite boards from some place like mcmaster carr and the individual turrets from them (maybe) or mouser. It's way cheaper, you can get a really big board of garolite for like 20 bucks and you drill your own holes for the turrets and tap them in.
