I grew up with all those electronics mags of the 60s, 70s and 80s, too, and I learned a lot from building (and modifying) countless DIY projects... But that's not what SOS is about, and
It's not what the vast majority of the readership are interested in. The world is a different place...
Added to which, there would be costs involved in developing DIY projects and overheads in producing PCBs etc which would be impractical in the current publishing climate. And then there's the potential litigation aspect to put further dampeners on the whole idea!
Yes, I quite understand Hugh. Shame innit?
It is a shame but present 'Elf & Safety' (it is nearly Christmas after all) do make it difficult.
I too grew up with those mags and the occasional DIY project and, now I'm retired, I hope to do some more. Next, I think, might be one of those Rakit Drum Synths (having recently built the Baby 8 Sequencer) but with a remote socket for the trigger pad so I can fire it from a DIY Stomp Box.
