Hi Bas,
Donít mean to stalk you

Can you give the measurements of your case please including height, depth , width in metric cm or mm?

Could you also say what size holes you had to drill for the valves / tubes?

Anything else that would be good to know it is relevant would be appreciated?

It will help me thinking about either building or sourcing a case?

What type of top plate have you used? Steel, aluminium etc

Thanks again

Lee

Topplate aluminium.

Width 35cm*30cm*11cm (But as usual I would have preferred a bigger cabinet. I was quite nervous about the proximity of the power transformer to the output transformers.) So go bigger if you can.

I drilled them bigger after I found out the alignment was not exact...and I could not fit them. Unfortunately I did determine the holes when the pcb was still unsoldered too. Think the holes were 28mm. But that is trivial. Just don't drill them much bigger so that a kid can't stick his fingers in.

A relevant tip is that when your pcb is still unsoldered to...to determine where to drill the holes.

You are welcome.

Just a correction.

Should be when I had already soldered the board.
