Looking at the Velleman K4040 amp made me think that I could use a thin stainless steel sheet over a structural sheet of wood or anything really.

Has anybody done this? Know any suppliers of stainless steel sheet?

Lower weight would make shipping cheaper.

www.onlinemetals.com sells all sorts of (sheet) metal, but I can't imagine shipping to Ireland would be economic from Washington state. (Heck it is not that economic shipping to the right coast.. )Perhaps there is a similar outfit on your side of the pond?

Kevinkr,
I'm looking this side but can find anything yet, that's why i wondered about thin stainless steel as a finish sheet.

I am putting my tube amp into a wooden case with an upside down grilling wok with lots of holes in it for a cover. I'll post a picture when its done.

I was pointed to an all wood amp which I like the look of - save all that difficult metal-working http://db.audioasylum.com/cgi/m.mpl?...=45+stevebrown

I'd try to find some online hobbyist machinest group (mini lathes/mini mills) in the EU and see if they can steer you to a source. There is a group on Yahoo, but it is more focused on North America. (I have a small milling machine, hence the suggestion.)

I use these front and back in 2U, and wood sides - looks nice!! Easy to make a frame, and then you can fit a top or bottom. I use modular top plate - 100mm, 50mm etc - in 4mm alu.

Hi, Andy !

Thanks for the great tip. One of the smartest idea I have ever seen.
I'm was about to start re-tooling existing rack-mount server chassis. Now I'm understand this was dumb idea.

Can you please post pictures of finished units?
Thanks in advance.
