Horio,
How dare you rest the case with the faceplate directly on the bench
I would be horrified to scratch it!
Looks fantastic!
Nic

The aluminum is pretty tough. Just make sure your bench surface is clean!

Default Thanks, Greg.....

.....for your "assembly manual". It will take a lot of the mystery out of the case assembly. Your calling out the hardware (screws, bolts, etc) will also help prevent me from "screwing up" my case.

Very nicely done. And appreciated......

Greg,

May be more of an esthetic thing, than anything else. The metric hardware--are you using allen button-head fasteners on your case (except in those instances where the machined plates indicate a need for countersunk fasteners).

Perhaps it will become clear once I get my "bits and pieces" of the case.....

Thanks.......

All of the visible screws (except the small M3 button head screws use to attach the rear panel to the rear bracket), are countersunk. The screws on the bottom of the case are standard metric allen bolts. Patrick and Mark were nice enough to give us a complete hardware kit with the case. Not sure if that answers your question.

Greg, sorry--"senior moment" here. I had forgotten the hardware will come with the case parts. Wow--I'm really looking forward to this one....!!

Hi,
It is beautiful! The best so far! How much you will have to spend for making a case like yours?

The Front Panel surface is anodized (aluminum oxide). The hardness of the "coating" is about HRc60 or above. But I'll still put a cloth on the bench first.

The photos are great. Thanks Horio.
