Rapid Prototyping of knob board and rack
How to build a durable rack of knobs with minimal soldering as fast as possible. It's possible if you do a little bit of pre-planning. In this demo I drew a template in Inkscape, laser-printed it, then used it to drill out a smooth plastic housing from a dead piece of audio gear (class T amp).

Then, I mount 11 guitar pots onto it. This is for controlling effects boxes, guitar pedals, electric eels, and other electronic music instruments.
