    okay guys im back

    spec i still have the board as it was in the final stage i could send it over to you just so you can have a look etc. (i dont want it back i can remake it)

    yes i could have used a breadboard however this was a rushed timeframe and im only just getting into circuitry etc but thanks for the input and i will be getting a breadboard and a smaller soldering iron, also sockets are definitely the way to go, however when i purchased all the components it completely slipped my mind

    well anyway guys today was the nephews birthday and i managed to complete it besides the circuit however it is ready to have the circuit plugged in. This is what i built for my nephew (he turned 2 today)

    Morning from the UK Keshin,

    It's 7:50am here- have been dreaming about 555s

    If you would not mind sending the board that would be much appriciated. I will pm my address.

    That toy you built for your two-year-old nelhew is great- bet he loves that. You know, that might make a good toy for maketing.

    Are you going to be experimenting today, or do you fancy a rest.

    Ok that's good to know with timing haha it's 8.20 pm Aus here, I won't be able to experiment tonight as I haven't got another 555 yet (shop was shut) however in the morning I can get some.

    Thanks yes he loved it, they call them a busy board, good fun for kids.

    Nice work for both projects. The soldering is top notch and the board is colorful and even level/perpendicular.
    You might try to get IC sockets for the chips. Machined pin http://www.king-cart.com/cgi-bin/ca...name=HWS9027&gclid=CM-Tl8vF6skCFYEYHwodpD4NJg are the better sockets.

    Solderless breadboards http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail...VuP7fiVTIg==&gclid=CJfT44PG6skCFYIcHwod1ZUJWA come in many varieties.
