It seems like we have a few things in common.
Great shot, what a explosion!

Although I understand the desire to have a nice chassis, I confess to feeling that a DIY circuit should live in a DIY chassis. I sometimes make exceptions for circuits that have died, leaving behind shells that are empty and waiting for another circuit...in much the same way that Hermit crabs find new homes.
It took me five "dead" Hafler DH-200s before I found one that was truly dead. The first four were victims of horrendously botched "upgrades." I couldn't bear to kill an honorable amp whose only problem was a bad solder joint. So the first three went into my AV system. The fourth was in the lab for a while, now in the living room system because it's easier for my wife to live with. The fifth one was the charm. Dead. Totally. I've got an idea or two about what I want to do there, but don't have time at the moment. Oh, well.

It is great feeling finishing good amp. It is equally rewarding making nice job on the case. Case is the biggest obstacle to many people. It is hard to make a good case without proper equipment. Because of the very reason, last year I have been learning machining.

This is really funny statement.

Here is the proof that I do not just destroy great amps. This is the case that I am working on right now, with my newly acquired knowledge. Even do I am not very patient person, I decided to do it slowly with attention to details, such as feet and special work on the front plate, beveled edges for the cooling openings... It is work in progress.

Ha, ha, How do you know - are you looking into the future.

You forgot on the Cardas solder. I still have it and keep it for the best projects. Did you make any more of the anual GBs?

I'm Physic. No Cardas GB's since '05

You need a photo editing software to enlarge the pic and save it as a low "quality" jpg file.
