Default Chassis service?

Does anyone out there make amplifier chassis for a decent price?

The problem I have is I am not a good woodworker or metal worker. Nor do I have the tools to do it.

I am entirely an electronics engineer and I have all of that handled. I have a design in my head of how I want my chassis as far as the wooden parameter, the metal top, etc.. but I cant actually fabricate it.

any ideas?

RF Parts are the best prices in US IMO or try a China shop. Stay away from audiophiles prices as these from Landfal: Landfall Systems

The Chinese wont deal with me unless I am making 50 or more pieces. Not worth it IMHO.

I highly recommend Landfall Systems, and use them for most of my designs. They are a great option for those who can't or don't want to fabricate their own chassis. I should disclose that I am pretty friendly these days with one of the principals at Landfall, so am inclined to recommend them to anyone listening..

It's all custom work done to customer specification so there are no standard offerings, but they are competitive particularly regarding the quality of their work. They're also very nice, and won't mind an email outlining what you are looking for and asking for a rough idea of price, they will quote before doing any work. (i.e. quote is exactly what you pay)

Right. ok. I noticed its all-metal though, and I want to do a hybrid. Wood base, metal top/bottom.

From what I can tell of the design, the top plate is separate from everything so I could just remove that. But then again I would need someone to do the woodworking :-(

Protocase.com is what I use. A single metal enclosure will cost a couple hundred the quality is good and they can do just about anything.
