The raw transformers are made in USA by Heyboer. I purchased mass quantities of end bells separately and had them powder coated with RAL9006 which is a metallic called White Aluminum. Looks very nice, similar to a pearlescent finish.

The chassis that will be part of the full kit will be raw aluminum with walnut side panels. You can see a photo at post #82. As far as the woodworking you might want to get in touch with "jmillerdoc" who is a member here. He does excellent work.

Thanks
The chassis I will be offering will be precut for the lay-down style transformers as pictured in post #97, so unless you can source this style in the exact size, your only option to be able to use this chassis would be to custom cut an aluminum plate that would cover the transformer cutout and mount with the existing transformer mounting holes. You could then mount a standard stand-up transformer to the plate. This was something I had looked into briefly but I have been so busy trying to get this initial build going, that option is kind of on the back-burner for now, so to speak.

If you can give me the dimensions for the power Trafo mounting holes, That will help me check with my vendor. I have a local vendor who makes R-cores.

Thanks

The power transformer is a standard EI 1-1/2" core, mounting hole centers are 3" X 3.75".

Default SE Assembly Manual

Hello,

I am working diligently to complete the manual for this project. I thought that I would post the first few pages to let you get an idea of the format.

Happy holidays to all,

Scott

Default beta builder

Just wanted to let you know if you need a guinea pig to build a kit, I would be happy to help. Never built a kit before the most has been wiring and soldering a crossover network. Your work looks good so far.
