Thanks for putting all this effort CF3 ..dB

+1 on the thanks!

 

Slightly OT Mouser question...It's super useful to have the custom "customer" component designation printed on the individual pouches.  Problem is, after a bunch of projects with overlapping parts the engine seems to replace the CTH info with info from previous projects.  Is there a simple way to fix this?

You're welcome guys...  I have noticed that Mouser auto-fills any old customer descriptions you've used for a part whenever you re-use the part....

 

BUT do you mean that the CTH BoM I shared is not coming up w/the CTH parts numbers that were painstakingly entered?:

E,g, when you open that Shared BoM of mine you don't get the correct CTH parts #s that I/we entered?  That would suck big time.

For me the part numbers/quantities are all fine, but the customer descriptions/board locations are from a mixture of other existing projects.  Hate to have your hard work go unexploited, and we all KNOW what a pain it is to enter that info.  BUT you're solution worked perfectly (I'll let CF3 elaborate).  I tested on my primary computer with my Mouser account and on a "virgin" computer.  Seemed to work great!

The solution was to make the Shared Project a Shared Cart instead rolleyes.gif   Got to remember that nuance.

 

Will PMing everyone the link to my Shared Cart (has exact same parts as Shared Project did but should preserve the CTH parts descriptions).

Last or next-to-the-last update to post # 2.  But interest in PCBs should still be logged here for any next PCB batch (4->8 months hence?).

The Mouser power users probably already know this, but here's my recent experience trying to retain CF3s useful part comments for easier assembly:

 

- The shared cart worked great to retain the comments, but I could not add items to it.

- Saving it as my own project or cart reverted to the messed up customer part info again.

 

This was my solution:

 

(1) log out

(2) load the original shared project from CF3s 12/11 pm

(3) add/delete/modify project & add modified project to cart

(4) save modified cart and get link

(5) log in and verify cart is empty

(6) add saved cart from step #4

(7) check out

(8) order confirmation email shows all correct part comments

 

Seems like a lot of steps, but it's actually very easy.  This should only be necessary if you have lots of saved projects with overlapping parts (and you want to retain the CTH part comments on the individual pouches and invoice).

Add me to the list for a PCB when one becomes available.  Qty 1

 

Thanks

I have found a nice box that would fit the CTH, but I have already ordered the hammond from the BoM

I am going to order from them the 9-pin PCB tube socket, a golden tube guard, and a socket saver to rise the height of the tube (it will also protect the pins of the PCB socket from abusive tube rolling)

Actually you could fit 3 CTH PCBs in that case with room to spare:)   I've that case sitting in my basement for another project, its quite long and the materials are nice and thick.  It's not an obvious case for CTH IMO due to its size, you'd be cutting ventilation/tube holes and w/the A/C jack you'd want to put the transformer in the case, hopefully far enough away from any PCBs to avoid hum.
