Yes, you, too, can create flames with a muff fuzz!
Simply attempt to sub in a potentiometer for R2, and there you have it- fire!
Seriously, this just happened to me. Instead of messing around with different res. values, I figured a pot would be much quicker.
I connected the wiper to ground, and one of the lugs burst into small flames (not sure which). I cut the power and it went out.
No one was hurt. No parts were damaged. The circuit still works fine.
I was using a 100k pot, and it was turned to one of its extremes. I don't know if this was full on or no resistance.
So... can anybody tell me why this happened?
