As to the feet, at the moment, I don't want to supply that item either, but I would suggest using one cone directly under transformer (attached to the bolt going through the center of transformer) and a sort of two regular feet in the back.

As you noticed, I decided to mount AC socket on the bottom panel. If that socket is mounted in a regualr way, a clearance of 1" is reguired for a regular 90 deg plug. But if the socket is mounted on 0.5" stand offs, this reduces the required clearance as well. Now, this arrangement may not be completely safe and a full size spacer might be more apropriate.

The attenuator and switcher are not included with a chassis, but I think Brian was considering adding it as a separate item.

The only problem with cutting holes for mains input sockets is that they are different throughout the world, unless everyone could use something like an IEC connection. However this does mean that a 110v piece of kit could be plugged into 240v by someone unsuspecting, not good

I believe IEC is a standard connector all over the world and since chassis is supplied without transformer, it's up to the person putting the amp together to chosse the proper voltage.

I am a little confused as to how the IEC connector looks on the bottom of the case.

Would I be able to use thicker "boutique" power cords, such as DIY versions of these: http://www.venhaus1.com/flavor2pic.jpg ?

It seems there wouldn't be enough room?

Peter,

I think about being part og the group and would definitively like to get these items at the same time.

Also, what is the price of a good transfo for this amp ?

Regards,

Daniel from Quebec city

Hey Peter,
The Chassis looks great. What is the height without the feet? I read that its 9 X 10 but didn't see the height. Also you said you cut the pieces with a table saw. Did you just use a bi-metal blade and go slowly? Any lube? I never thought of using a table saw for cutting aluminum.
