The one thing I'd do is make the store more prominent on the diyaudio home page. I visit the home page more than my employer would like and I forget the store is there. There's more boards there than I realized.

Anyway, other than that +1 on a smaller chassis (half wide) for smaller projects.

I was planning to place an order from Italy during the Summer for Fall/Winter projects. I'll gladly buy from the DIYaudio store instead. If you guys make it available, I'll order:

2 x 2U 300
1 x 5U 400

regarding screws for outputs - it's clever to use max possible dia - M3.5 or whatever is in non-metric size

Store can scavenge and sell small packages of these , but in greater quality (hardness?) than usual metal store generic ones .

either torx or wrench heads

same for big washers and spring washers

Wow...I never knew there was a diyaudio store. I love the idea of making enclosures available, as they are about the hardest things to source, and far beyond my means to fabricate.

I've been using Hammond RM series enclosures. To my taste the Hammond look very good. Not sure if I would switch, but it would be great to have the option.

As to size and finishes, I like 1U and I like black powder coat. "Silver" is also OK with me. On the other hand, I've never seen black anodized aluminum that looked any good. And I used to manufacture commercial units in black anodized aluminum. Yuck.

The DIY Friendly Base is something I would probably want if I were to buy an enclosure.

Thanks for doing this.

I would probably initially buy 2 4U chassis, predrilled and 2 DFBs.
