Default My "Red board" chassis

Greetings everyone,
Just wanted to show you my "Red board" chassis before it gets stuffed. My plan is a separate power supply. If anyone has any questions, you can get me at rsumperl@hhk.com

Did you machine this yourself or (wisely) use someone like Front Panel Express?

This will look far better than my particle board and test lead construction...

Actually Stuart, I wish I had the machinery to do it, love doing that kind of stuff, must be the male power tool thing, but alas, I drew it out and sent it to a shop in Chicago.
As a side note, the most "fun" job this EE ever had (besides working in Detroit) was working at an engine rebuilder in Melbourne Florida!

Would you be willing to share the name of the shop? I'm in Chicago and I sure would be happy to find a good one.

Thanks!

Default Big red board.

Looks sweet, can't wait to see it stuffed. What iron and tubes have you selected??
I went wood with the second amp. Just was able to get the wood stained and the plate buffed. Head to China tomorrow.
I received the knobs that I ordered before Christmas so I was able to finish the first one as designed. The other knobs were a little tacky.

That chassis looks quite good. Is it completely custom or does somebody make that base chassis minus custom machining?

The detail that really sells it for me is what looks like tight tolerances on the beveled edges and the fact that the panels look nice and thick.

I'm also interested in the source of the bare chassis.

Just wondering, how much did it cost you to have them do the machining for you?
