Thank you so much for this! Just in time for my first build too! Just bought the shell and motherboard from the GBfans shop.

I have some questions though:

- The Beamline Tube and the Filler Tube go to the same beam line shop page - what are the differences between the two?

- The bellows is the same as the shock mount, correct?

- What are the dry rub transfers? Just another option rather than stickers?

And can someone point me to the right direction to a thread or video of something attaching the shell or pack to the motherboard? Can't seem to find anything on that - or how to attach the electronics to the motherboard or how to position it inside of the pack? Any tips would help!

Thanks to everyone on the best board there is! :cool:

Edit: also a little clueless on how to attach the Aluminum Welded Booster Tube / Plug to the shell? Tried watching some videos but none of that has been included so far

That was a typo in the link that has been corrected. The beam line tube has a tapped NPT 1/8-27 hole for a Clippard fitting, the filler tube is smooth with no hole.

The bellows is commonly referred to as a shock mount or ion knob.

They are a type of sticker that are basically a wax ink on a plastic sheet. You use a dull edge (like a finger nail) to actually rub or transfer the waxy colors on to another surface. They are more accurate than stickers and are mainly used on the wand and Ghost Trap pedal.

For the other things, I'd recommend checking out various people's build threads here on the forum: viewforum.php?f=2

I may be having a brain-fart, but I think the proton pack list is missing the three Dale resistors on the Ion arm.
  • 1 Dale PH-25 Resistor
  • 1 Dale RH-25 Resistor
  • 1 Dale RH-50 Resistor
