i got them from raw materials :-)

they were built from scratch really. the heatsinks were bought surplus, re-machined and surfaced, the entire case was milled from plates, same with the faceplate.

Congratulations Cowangr
This construction is an absolutely true DIY process. I have two questions. First, the bending of side panels is your work? Second, the aluminium panels are painted or anodized? Your information about these will be very precious to me.
Kind regards

im not sure what you mean about bending the side panels. the side panels are 3/8" thick and are flat plates. the case is made up of 5 plates. sides are 3/8" thick and top and back are 1/8", and bottom is 1/4".

they entire case is powder coated. it was sanded, acid-dipped, blasted, then powder-coated. the paint will not come off easily. you can bang them around pretty good and it wont scratch or chip.

I think you scared 'em off with the standard of your construction! You've got some nice looking stuff.

thanks.

i wish i still had a picture of my FIRST amp ever. some of the veterans might remember it. it's case consisted of 2 small cardboard boxes. i didnt have many tools, so a screwdriver was my only drill, and it will only drill through cardboard. so, binding posts, rca jacks, and IEC were 'mounted' into the cardboard.

it was 2 boxes because it was dual mono, with separate power supply box. there were 2 3-pin xlr jacks connecting both channels of power from main box to secondary box. haha. it was hilarious. it was a gainclone.

i wish i still had pictures, im sure someone does.
