    2007 threads posts The Jameco inductors are not adjustable To tune the oscillator pair you need at least one adjustable inductor in each pair The Coilcraft SLOT TEN 5 13 may work it has a much lower Q I believe that you can order those directly from Coilcraft jcl link Report Post Posted 10 2 2007 4 24 32 PM 3 therem13 Joined 9 25 2007 threads posts The plans list that I need 2 separate types of variable inductors two 100uH one 68uH Would the SLOT TEN 5 13 work for both or only one If only one of the types what inductor would serve as the other link Report Post Posted 10 2 2007 4 45 35 PM 4 jluciani From Massachusetts Joined 8 18 2007 threads posts Slot TEN 5 13 is a 100uH inductor The EM Thermemin circuit schematic was updated to use three variable inductors 47uH and three fixed inductors 2 47uH and 1 22uH for the oscillators You may have an easier time finding the inductors for the modified circuit The article is on the Moog site and is called Understanding Customizing and Hot Rodding your ETHERWAVE Theremin jcl link Report Post Posted 10 2 2007 7 54 36 PM 5 therem13 Joined 9 25 2007 threads posts Thank you for the alternate modified article If the Slot TEN 5 13 is the 100uH inductor would the 68uH be the Slot TEN 5 11 Could the A7BRS T1040Z TOKO from digikey work Does anyone know what the values besides inductance are on the variable inductors from the revised circuit Now I m not sure what schematic to follow any suggestions but after looking for the 47uH variable inductors it seems like high Q variable inductors are quite hard to find in general link Report Post Posted 10 2 2007 8 59 42 PM 6 jluciani From Massachusetts Joined 8 18 2007 threads posts The slot TEN 5 11 could work for the 68uH The A7BRS T1040Z TOKO looks like the replacement part for the obsolete RWRS T1015Z The Q for all of the oscillator inductors in both circuits will be the same since the function is the same The revised circuit splits the 100uH and 68uH in half 100uH is apx 47uH 47uH and 68uH is apx 47uH 22uH Splitting the inductance allows you to bulk purchase a single variable inductor which is one of the highest cost parts in the circuit Except for the oscillator inductors I believe that the circuits are almost identical Build whichever one you can the inductors for jcl link Report Post Posted 10 2 2007 9 21 54 PM 7 therem13 Joined 9 25 2007 threads posts The A7BRS T1040Z is very close to the RWRS T1015Z Q min 80 instead of 100 I think the slot TEN 5 11 is a fair substitute for the 154ANS T1019Z 30 Q min instead of 60 Do you think it would be worth it to try and build the 1996

  • Theremin World - Topic: Completely newbie planning to build EM theremin
    hell If you use schematic and PCB editor you should be able to copy the component placements from the EM article as a guide and the PCB editor will help greatly as you will see ratsnesting showing the required connection between components My advice would be that this is not a starting project I would echo Chobbs advice loudly But hey luck sometimes favors the foolhardy Fred PS When you enter your schematic s keep the component references the same as the EM if you are copying that or the EW if you are copying that This way you will be able to cross reference against the original parts when you do your layout Also Make all connections to components on the lower solder side layer The PCB layout editor will place vias when you go from lower to upper layers but these will not exist when you build your board Every connection to the upper layer and every track on the upper layer will need to be hand wired so dont take an upper track to a component pin directly it MUST go back down to the lower layer before it connects to a pin there are no plated through holes with pad boards this is why they need to be straight if they are not straight or if they come too close to a component lead these wires will need to be insulated Oh one last thing Use good quality turned pin sockets for all ICs and as you havent soldered before I would advise you to buy some socket strips you can cut up to make sockets for your transistors and diodes as well they dont like getting their legs cooked for too long And I would buy a load of cheap components resistors or whatever and a spare board and practice soldering these and wires onto this board then practice unsoldering them and removing them and cleaning the board you will need a solder sucker and some solder wick then re mounting them and re soldering Do this until the board is a complete wreck Also Use tin lead solder not the new RoHS lead free rubbish The new solder doesnt flow or wet as well is more brittle has a higher melting temperature and is quite horrible link Report Post Posted 11 8 2012 11 38 56 PM 6 Hazel From Vigo Spain Joined 11 8 2012 threads posts Hi Fred First of all thank you for your help It is much apreciated this is why they need to be straight if they are not straight or if they come too close to a component lead these wires will need to be insulated You are talking about the hand wires don t you Similar to the wires that you can see here i guess I read somewhere about the distance between some componentes Some of them should be close and some should be far away Is that true Which of them PS I have to
