Except that they don't appear to deal with copper in sheet form.

It's not listed on their site, no. I have visited one of their affilliate shops they distribute through and they did.

my last chassis was 19in wide , 6in tall and 10in deep and used 2mm aluminum all around accept for the sides which were 1/2 in thick and doubled as heatsinks , it cost me about $65 which was about 1/3 the price of a pre-built chassis ......

and yes the do copper accept they only seem to have certain thicknesses and it"s very expensive , like over $10 a pound .......

I'm surprised there aren't more companies offering good looking cases and chassis for DIY. DIYers put so much work into making their designs sound good, that it would be nice to find something that looked just as professional. This is a step in the right direction for at DAC or phono preamp, at least:
Aliexpress.com : Buy 2U Aluminum Box Enclosure Case 88mm*299mm*254mm(H*W*L) from Reliable Custom Server Cabinet Enclosure suppliers on Foshan Nanhai Yonggu Hardware Products Co.,Ltd

This one looks pretty good:
Aluminum Box Enclosure Case 13.39"*9.84"*2.54"(L*W*H)-in Other Electronic Components from Electronic Components & Supplies on Aliexpress.com
although it's not quite large enough for my application.

If this style was made just a little larger, say 12" x 15" x 3" it would be perfect. I'm sure you would sell quite a few of that size as long as folks knew that you had them.

With the face plate on the 15" side.

edit: Actually after thinking about that for a minute, the faceplate would be better on the 12" side. Easier to accommodate wood side panels if desired.

Also, anodized architectural bronze color would be a nice finish to offer.

We don't offer complete copper chassis, but we can possibly offer copper for the top and/or bottom plate.
