I'll let the plastic sheets over the plates until the chassis is completely finished. This will avoid scraches when I'll work on it.

Any comments?

I bought the plates from a company that works with aluminium, near strasbourg

I drilled the holes with a (don't know if it's the correct word in english) stand-driller (a big driller on a stand). Holes are 5mm, with a chamfering for the screws

the "inner holes" were drilled with 4.2mm and then I made a M5 tapping

now I'm wondering how I'm going to place all my gainclone's components in it

should I place the toroid in the center, ant then each channel at one side?

or place the toroid in an edge or a side?

As I have just written on another thread...
Absolutley stunning! People are actually catching up with PD's standards! (I'm just trying to nudge him into doing something outstanding! )

Keep up the great work and pictures. The name for the drill you were using is called a Pillar Drill.

OK

Peter, any comments about my case? I know I'm still far from your artwork skills, but I'd like to know what you think about my first chassis.


The problem I've got with it (the only one for now):
the top (and bottom) plates are "inside" the others, not other and under. I did it because of aesthetics, this way when you look at the amp (in front of it) you only see the front plate, ant not the front plate with the left/right/top/bottom plates all around of it.

but I have difficulties to put the top plate off, it's strongly hol in place by the other plates when they are screwed
