    Smile the Sim Console

    It isn't much, but it is what I can afford. Here are some images of the buildup. It is not done, yet.

    Slider hookup

    I like the slider hookup. Do you get an even proportional travel on the slider-pots this way?

    If you wanna use my ideas..go ahead ( i will need a "small" copyright fee ). I am pleased that you all like it.

    the pot travel isn't "exact", but it is close enough, I could tweak it to make it perfect, but i am lazy . I just add a small null zone, and it works. This setup is probably the best I could think up for the space I have to work with.

    Click on the photo Gallery link at the top of the page under the Banner. About 1/4 of the way down on the left hand side you will see "Upload Photo" select that, and be sure the photo's your uploading at no larger then 800X600

    Best regards,

    Trev
