    Default Nigel's Speed controller for a 401 - build service?

    I have an unpopulated board thingy and chip thingy to make up Nigel's Speed controller for a Garrard 401, but if I touched a soldering iron I'd burn the house down.

    I have NO experience soldering or electrical tinkering...

    So does anyone offer an affordable build service for such a thing?
    Obviously want to avoid it costing as much as a commercial off the shelf solution.
    Or is it all just too much of a faff?

    Please don't persuade me to have a bash myself....I know my limitations, & boy am I limited!

    Thoughts appreciated chaps.

    picture of board thingy..

    I can populate that for you at mates rates.

    (It is not that difficult, you really should have some practice at soldering - get someone to show you how)

    Have a bash. Not necessarily on this board, but soldering is easy really and well worth being able to do. My dad taught me when I was about six years old (he was an electronics wiz!).

    I actually do own a solder iron as i was planning a cap replacement of some speakers I have in the shed.
    You've inspired me to have a go.
    Not on this board though.

    Which end do I hold!?
    Cheers Geoff
