Manu,

a length of rectangular nylon bar reduces friction/wear of the buitoni, plus minimal tolerances.
Merely requires drilling the holies in 3 diameters of different depth.
(drill bit with a broken-off tip to flatten out the bottom of the holes)

Seems faisable, even for me...
I have already metall drill bits with flat ends ... they will fit perfectly ...
hehe .. no need to wait till I broke a bit inadvertently, as usual

Sorry...

So far, first UGS from Greece. And what a beautiful beast !
Congrats, III. That's a very nice piece of work and the full expression of ingenious DIY.
I admire the way you managed to make all on your own, electronics and casing (very very nice).

I just hope you enjoy the result

Kudos once more

...for the galery, from the promised foto session!

Finally got everything working;

Orion ASP - with temporary front panel.
UGS - sans front plate and testing the display 1.
Shanling - waiting for my own transport....another thread in these pages.
ATI 6012 - 8x Orion amps....with 4 spare.

the sound is amazing !


Thanks to Nelson Pass, François, Vmoreau for the GB and SL for the sharp end !

....now to spend some time with my CNC to make the front panels with the care such a system deserves.
