I was a bit disappointed in the MK 117 kit. I like the kits to teach basic electronics to my nephews, but that is of little use without a schematic. They might as well stick to their legos as it is just another building block project.
With a schematic, they could poke around and learn to use an oscilloscope, read the schematic, and maybe learn some basic troubleshooting skills if I put a fault in the circuit.
I think this is the first kit I’ve ever purchased that didn’t come with a schemtic. I’ve been building kits since the Heathkit days. From now on, I’ll look at the manual on the web before purchasing and may return this one.
All kits are supplied with a diagram, unless there is no room on the blister card.
In that case, you can download the schematic from our website.
Hereby the link to the diagram of the MK117 kit:
If you would like to teach your nephews about scope you may want to look at the EDU06 link below.
Just a thought.
Thanks for the schematic and the suggestion for the education board.
I appreciate both.
I am soldering kit MK117, but because it doesn’t work, I am in doubt if I didn’t accidentally join two solder points. This because some solder point lie close to each other and therefore are eager to ‘melt’ together.
Therefore, can someone send me a detailed scan or photo of the (not yet assembled) circuit board ?
PS I already have a schematic
What part of it is not working?
You could post a picture of the top and bottom of your board.
Maybe someone could find the problem.
