A Small Project
I have had an inexpensive kit-built code-practice oscillator for years, built into the hard-plastic box it was sold in. The plastic was pretty brittle and the little widget had gotten knocked around over the years. It needed a new case.
So I gave it one. That's just a tea tin, with some added spray paint, a perforated metal backing to the thin metal on the (former bottom) front panel, labelled with home-made decals on laser-printable water-slide decal material.
(I have blanked out the rest of my callsign.)
The slowest part was waiting for the paint and lacquer to dry.
It was a fun little project and a chance to see how the printable decal material works. It's nice stuff!
