Cricket 40 Crystal Source

Dave Burnett
 

Is anyone able to provide a source of additional crystals for the Cricket 40?  I'd like to have one for somewhere around 7060-7064 and maybe a few more.  I've looked on the WTL website but I must be missing something.

72,

Sorry 
I missed you guys this year... Had to work back to back doubles. I can't have them all off.

Re: Anyone have a box for the Tracer Injector v2 Kit

 

Phil,

Ok, I see that the depth of the cast must accommodate a 13.4mm tall cap, but it can be taller and the board mounted on standoffs (unless one can find such a shallow case as 13.4 mm)

I didn't see what length and width is needed for `the circuit board to fit inside the case.

I bought a box of Bud and similar cases at a hamfest (back before COVID shut 'em down) and they vary in sizes from the smallest, 65mmx40mm & 27mm deep on up to larger sizes.  Also I have the larger size Altoids tin which is 90x55mm & 18mm deep.  What is the size of the circuit board?

Hi EuGene,

I'm rounding to nearest 0.1 mm, I'm using calipers that claim 0.01mm accuracy.

Top of board to the bottom of approx solder connection on the bottom of the board ~ 3.7mm

The top of the board is far more complex. There's a slider on/off switch, two connection ports to plug the probes into, the vertical caps are taller than the case of the volume control.

Board thickness ~ 1.6mm

bottom of board to top of stereo socket case ~ same as top of on/off switch case: ~8.4mm

bottom of board to top of tallest vertical cap (10uf) ~ 13.4mm

Probe ports, bottom of board to top of these: ~ 14.3mm,
  bottom of board to wide section of probe ports: ~9.7mm
NOTE: the probes should be able to plug into these to touch the top of the wide section.
DIA of the ports 10.8mm (10.82mm)

Bottom of board to top of volume control case: ~10.0mm (9.95mm)

Bottom of board to top of volume control stem: ~22.3mm (22.26mm)

If this stem is 22mm tall and the case is made to just match the height of the tallest vertical caps there's about 22-13.4mm ~ 8.6mm for a knob to slip onto the stem. Looks good.

However, if the case has to clear the tallest caps at 13.4mm then they are taller than the stem of the on/off slider switch and an extender will need to be made for the on/off switch stem.

Top of tallest cap ~ 13.4mm, top of slider stem to bottom of the board: ~12.6mm.

        _______Parts here - top of the board
Board:  |______solder + parts wires down below here - bottom of board

I hope that helps and is not too confusing.

The problem is I've sent an email to the address provided and not received any answer about a broken part replacement. Anyone know who to contact and/or how long it takes to get a response?

Hi, John - here is the link to that wooden box.


I really like it - I made the partitions - lots of options there.

Good luck!
