Thanks Peter! I'll be at it.

I'm still at P.48 on my catching up. The reason of my slowness is that I'm trying to grasp everything while I read and also follow the most updated posts in this thread. Ouch! I'm learning pretty much, it's so interesting.

If anyone has a spare boombox or parts needed to build this transport, and is willing to ship to USA, I'd like to purchase them.

Hi,

Can I add a picture of another finished Shigaclone.

I machined this out of a solid block of Aluminium, it started out at 7kg and now is more like 5 what with it now having a big hole in it.

I went for a milled dashboard type effect on the outside a bit like you get in old Bentleys and Aston Martins. We have a CNC at work that I get the chance to use out of work time but even so it took quite a bit longer than planned. Working out the program to machine the lid was particularly brain numbing.

I'm thinking of adding a window on the front at some point for the display but this may be a while off as I'd like to just enjoy to it for the time being.

I can only add to the thanks Peter has received for highlighting the idea of making a player from a boombox, it outperforms my previous player (a sony cdp-3000 ES) and hopefully should be my last.

Hi Zim
I don't think anyone would mind seeing your handy work.

Default local source of JVC RC-EZ31 found

Hi folks,

I haven't read all 130-odd pages of this thread (I got about half way before I found that way too much time had gone by), so I don't know what the current state of supply of the EZ31 units is. But I thought I would mention that I've found a store fairly close by that has several in stock. I was thinking of getting one myself, so just thought I'd put the offer out there if anyone is desperate to find one.
