Buildbrighton stompbox grinding

Here's Joel from the earlier BuildBrighton Stompbox workshop getting busy with a new enclosure for a variation on the Fuzz Factory pedal we made. The box is actually an old (and he tells us, quite crappy) effect pedal, but with space for four knobs and a nice big stomping area, it's the perfect box to put his modified fuzz factory in.

The first job, of course, is to clean up the artwork and design a custom decal sticker. Joel attacks his enclosure with a wire brush mounted on an angle grinder....

Showing us how to do it properly - note the dust mask and safety goggles
