Hey, how much did the XPWR035 cost? It looks about right for a small project I'm planning using Z565 output transformers and some 6V6 type tubes.

OK, so even though I knew the rough dimensions of these Edcors, I didn't quite come to terms with their size until they arrived. Man, these things are huge...and heavy. You definately get your money's worth with these guys. There is no way I am going to fit these on the 12x10 chassis I have on hand, so I am going to have to rethink that.

Isn't the mounting footprint of the Edcors 3.625" x 3.625"?

Attached is a shot of a Tubelab SE I built on a 10" x 12" chassis with the small Trancendars. They have a footprint of 3.875" x 3.0", so I think the Edcors will fit.

I like the 12" x 10" chassis because Hammond makes a cage for it.

If you put the Simple SE board (IIRC, the Tubelab SE and Simple SE are the same size), under the chassis, it would be even easier.

They are something like 3-7/8 x 4-1/2. The power transformer is about the same.

My bad.

I just looked at the dimensions for the mounting centers, and not the bells.

I think the next size up for the Hammond chassis is like 13" x 17", at least that offers a cage.

LMB has some 11" x 13" chassis that I built my Simple SE on - that might be another possibility.

I know I'm late posting on this one but those OT rock!
I have not posted any pics on my SimpleSE yet because the picture quality sucks. But I feel compelled to at least show you an option for a chassis. Please excuse the glare, angle, and what ever!

Just to prove to myself that I wasn't nuts when I drew up the chassis layout in Visio, I arranged everything on a 12x10 backplate:

It WILL fit...but it ain't pretty.
