I ordered this kit as it looked interesting for a build on my youtube channel. It did not disappoint. I am a very experienced kit builder with about 50 years experience in building and repairing electronics. I found the kit was relatively easy to construct. It has a mix of SMD and through hole components. Thankfully most are through hole, and only a handful of SMD resistors are used. The board is well labeled, and this kit should be a snap for anyone that has built kits before. If you have not worked with SMD components before a basic practice kit from banggood or icstation might be a good starter before starting on this kit as it is relatively expensive, so one wants to be familiar with soldering both SMD and through hole before beginning. The assembly instructions are very easy to follow and it was a pleasure to assemble and now that it is complete the clock looks great, is unique and will certainly grab attention in whatever room it is placed. For those interested, here is a link to my construction project of this kit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3U_cz8kCbPw
Don't miss this one. Another great kit by Christoph. This is the second one I've made and they are both wonderful. The kit is well planned out and not hard to assemble. As in most kits, identifying some of the parts can be hard, especially the small caps but doable with a good magnifying glass. The instructions are very well put together and the photos help a lot.
Christoph is right there to help, if needed. I found a couple of small errors in the photos and he corrected them immediately. All in all a very pleasant experience and I wish he had more kits to offer. I, for one would purchase them all.
I have been building electronic projects for years now. I love it. The kits vary widely in lots of respects. Finding and identifying the parts is many times quite a challenge. Many times the instructions are less than complete. Now a days most are online and must be downloaded, I understand the cost of sending a printed set of instructions
This kit has none of these issues. Yes, I did have to print the directions but they were very complete and well done. The parts in this kit are very well made and all there. The wood of the case is beautiful and I took the time to put a finish on them before I built the kit. I had a couple of questions during construction and the kit designer was quick and complete in his answers.
The clock is finished and looks wonderful on the dresser. My wife said "what a cute little clock". I'm happy.
