Okay, I called after the transformers, but the guy handling my order has reported sick. Tomorrow, someone should be there who knows about our transformers, so he should be able to handle the plug thing. I'll try again tomorrow...

I came across a Velleman 15V 500mA AC-AC adapter (price € 8,95) when i was in a local electronics shop today.

Link to the Velleman adapter (dutch):
Velleman nv

I don't know if it has the correct plug, but perhaps this could be an alternative to the adapter timpert mentioned?

Since we have already placed the order for the transformers, there is no way back.
I'm currently sitting in heavy traffic, so it might take a while until I can post the pictures...

I don't understand, why didn't the manufacturer thread the holes beforehand? For economic reasons?

I guess its a mixture of two things:
A) its cheaper without threaded holes.
B) threaded holes force the consumer into one fixed thread-inclination

As long as you are very careful with the screws and don't try to turn without pressing the screwdriver down, you will be fine.
The coating on the screws is not that bad, considering they are typical chinese rolled screws...

And here are the pictures: klick me!
By the way: iPhone camera sucks. The blue looks darker and more "serious" in the pictures than in real life...

Regards,
Jokener

Any chance for a username/password -combo or an alternative URL that doesn't require any, please?

Thanks. The black box seems quite usable.

They are both okay, if you ask me. Just the blue color threw me off my game a little...
I didn't expect as much "candy wrapper" and more "business" in that color.

But quality-wise, they are more than adequate.
The white you see is not bare aluminum underneath the anodization, its just a reflection of the halogen-spot on the ceiling.
And also, as you can see in the first picture, the color is very consistent.
The uneven color distribution on the front panels in #2 and #3 are reflections of the ESD-bag underneath.

Regards,
Jokener
