Yeah I am in for 2 cases, to add to my 7 other cases I am building.

If only this was done 12 months ago.

How about having the option of having 2 case designs. That is use the same heat sinks and case dimensions but have two options.
Option 1: Beautiful and expensive
Option 2: Cheap and nasty like mine

By the way I might be able to negotiate a good deal with Conrad as I have dealt with them on several occasions and can speak to him in person. Conrad is 10 minute away.

Cheap and nasty does not go with the name "EUVL".
I have my reputation to upkeep !!

Someone else might do the low cost version (but not nasty), and I have already gotten him to talk to variac.

The design will take 2 channels of F5X, so not mono-block, and not a tower design (which is exclusively our own, for now).

I am thrilled that so many of you have PMed me to offer help, or to commit to buying without even seeing one picture.
Variac has seen it, and he seems to be reasonably impressed. That is enough reward for me.

We need to do some more organisational work (getting quotes, etc.) before we can tell you more.

But thanh I'll take up your offer. Get us a quote for 100 pcs MF35-151 with 16 blind holes tapped M3x6deep, plus estimated shipment cost to Mark Lai.

Drawing to follow later.


Patrick

Cheap and nasty is just a saying. I didn't mean it literally.
Here are my two cheap and nasty monoblock cases I have on the go for a JLH amp.

I will try and get a quote to today.

Hi Patrick,

I'm in for minimum one of your case. And of course I will also buy the pcbs and build a second balanced F5, now exactly the design you suggest.

Regards, Uwe

Hey Patrick,

Unless your case design turns out really ugly (I have a hard time even imagining that ), you can count me in for at least one case (probably 2).

I can't wait to see it!

The total cost of aluminium (cut to size) to make 7 cases of varying dimensions was $240.
So on average that comes out to about $35 per case.
A conservative guess for the big cases would probably be about $50 to $60 per case (it might actually be cheaper than this).
To do the cases you see in the picture the cost of aluminium would have most likely cost around $25 per case.
I used 10mm for front plate and 3mm plate for top, bottom and back plates.
I will get more detailed info later.
