Default Rectifier Placement

Do you think the rectifiers & cap bank are too close to the toroid?
It's elbows to buttholes in there!

Default Boards Mounted & H/S's Prepared

I have the boards mounted on their standoffs and the heatsinks have been prepped for fan mounting.
If I can find my solder I may have an outside chance this will be running tonight.

!!!WHAT A FATHERS DAY PRESENT!!!

I didn't catch that the first time I read it -- cool! Great idea.

Just don't forget to properly shield the elbows, and tie the buttholes to a good star ground.....(!)

OK, OK, enough of my jocularity here.... You have plenty of room on your chassis. Lots of real estate in your design, when you compare it to my F5 layout:
Another F5 build--beautiful music, different drummer

UGH!!!!!
I forgot how much drill & tap sucks.
I broke my 6-32 tap on the first hole.
So far I have only 2 holes left and it has been smooth sailing.

If not already, use power drill with clutch. Much easier.
