Patrick where did you get the wire mesh from? This is exactly what I have been looking for.

I know you probably can't do much now, but if people like the mesh I think I would make the X fatter. That is make the legs of the X fatter so they extend closer to the corners. Either way it looks great.

Dave,

To enable trouble-free assembly for all, CNC drilled is standard :

Potential EUVL F5X designed case user distribution check

The mesh is not easy to mount tight onto the frame without distorting.

They were sourced by Mark from a local hardware shop.
But you can get good ones from McMaster-Carr.
Not cheap though.

I have to admit the drilled top came out much better than I thought.

Default Alternative case for FX5 amplifiers

Patrick and I have been discussing a case I designed for my own personal use building the FX5 amplifier. It is a bit simpler than his and Mark's design and will be less expensive. There seems to be a tremendous amount of interest in building these amplifiers and I will consider making cases for others if there is enough interest to make production worthwhile.

Right now I am working on making first articles of the case and still have plenty of work to do. Once everything is checked out and the case is finalized, I will post more specifics and price a kit that is made specifically for the FX5 to gage interest.
