On social media, they asked if there was anything in particular people would like to see explained in these videos. Well being a gobby cow (in the most delightful way), I had to ask about a quick primer on stereo-stim or using audio files when stimming. It's often a subject that causes lots of confusion to people new to stimming.
Imagine my delight when they did produce an excellent video on this subject. They even gave me a shout out in it too, thank you Electrastim.
You can find the first article in this build diary in My Stereostim Estim Control Box Build Part 1
This project has been on the back burner for a while now for a number of reasons. Firstly time has been an issue for me, with so many new products arriving for review it is pretty much flat out on that aspect of my site. You could say that I am a victim of my own success.
The second reason is that I well and truly messed up when trying to drill the front panel for the control box. There was I thinking using a pillar drill would be easy but I was doing something wrong. Maybe the wrong drill speed or whatever. In any case, the mess I made of the panel put a real downer on things, and I turned my attention to my reviewing. Vowing to get back to the build when I had a solution for the panel.
I now have one such solution, regular readers will know that I now have a 3D printer (an Ender 3 to be precise) and that has been a godsend for me with this project.
After waiting what seems like forever I have just about everything that I need to start my Stereostim E-stim Control Box build.
There are a few things I still need such as a box or enclosure for it, but I can't finalise the size that I need until after I have to build a test version of it on the bench to check it works and to work out my space envelope for the box.
Here is a pic of most of the components, there are a few others out of shot, but you can see that this has dozens of components to assemble.
