Braids to KOSMO Conversion Panels - and a Question!

Hey all!

So I found the Braids Panel Dimensions and decided to make a Braids to KOSMO Conversion Panel.

This Conversion with only require a couple things.
1: Desolder the original x6 3.5mm Jacks from the PCB (be sure to use solder wick to clean the holes)
2: Obtain 6 TruConnect (or TC Box Style) 1/4" Jack Sockets and pop them into the Conversion Panel
3: Wire all Corresponding Pins from the Jacks to the Board where the 3.5mm Jacks used to be.
4: Affix the Braids PCB to the back of the Conversion Panel, mount all of your Potentiometers and you should be good to go!

  • I haven’t received my Braids yet, I will have it later this week to decide if any additional supports are needed)

I do plan to add graphics and all of that.

Any suggestions?
I will probably sell a few of these if anyone if interested!

And onto the Question…
braids
Sam has a Switch on BOTH of his KOSMO Braids Conversions that he did… does anyone have the slightest clue of what this could be?
Are there any known Braids Modifications?

TBH, if it weren’t for you and your PCB Front Panel Guide I would definitely not be where I am at with this.
A big thanks also goes to @threetom for his recent guide on his blog. (I still REALLY want one of his panels with the LED backlights :smiley: )

And to all the suggestions I’ve gotten (like from @ChristianBloch in regards to the Soldermasking) :smiley:

@d42kn355 I’m happy to see that people find my little guide useful :slight_smile:

As far as those illuminated blanks go, I’m expecting the LEDs and the other components early next week. Some other people have been inquiring about them, so I will probably put a small batch on offer (that is if my little experiment turns out to be successful) :slight_smile:.

Looks so nice! Honestly better than the original “professional” plate. Haven’t quite decided where to put it, need to rearrange my case a bit.

The conversion is pretty straight forward only took about 45 minutes. Thank you for labeling the jacks on the backside too haha.
