Default Aluminium parts in Holland

I want to build a nice aluminium enclosure for my amp.
The problem is that I do not have any mechanical tooling.

Are there any shops in Holland where you can buy aluminium plates that they cut in the sizes that you need and for a decent price?

Dont know about Holland, but try and take a look at this site in Germany. They have a really nice way of creating custom frontplates and entire cabinets for that matter..

I scrapped some 4U 10Mbit cases years ago to build my still unfinished ZenV4 Hybrids. I've been looking for a shop that sells material for faceplats. So far I might even build the front and sides of the amp from hard wood instead of aluminium.

Send them an AutoCAD file and you get the CNC-cut face-plates sent by post (pay on delivery).

almost any metal shop will do that for you! in my experience it's not even that expensive.

Depending on how complicated the job is you can expect to pay more. If you need a faceplate or something (back panel, you name it) you can try schaeffer apparatenbau in germany. They're not that expensive, a friend told me. Download their software, design the plate, email it to them, pay on delivery.
