How are you gonna mount the thing? It looks like it weighs 3-4 Kg.

Since it will not be sporting a knob, I plan to mount it horizontally on two feet. I guess it weighs in just under 6 kg., so a couple of sturdy feet are to be machined ASAP.

I hope to have a running switch including the PLC and the step motor driver up and running by Monday or Tuesday, as I have to send the parts for anodizing Friday to be able to bring it to the DIY meeting in Gothemburg in Sweden on April the 1st.

Feel free to ask, I have only used step motors for a few projects so far, but there is little to them really.

Here you got a pic of a finished double deck.

I had a slight setback when I had to send the aluminum parts back for re-anodizing. The company which did the anodizing made quite a number of errors.

No, it can't be so, he says with clenched teeth recalling how many front panels have been ruined over the years.

Well Jocko, these guys went all the way.
In order to talk their way out of the fact that they had messed up, they claimed it had gone bad because the round parts were extruded and the feet were cast :axe:

My memory might fail me, but as I recall it those parts are machined :roll:

Well, it WAS beautiful. Those pricks who did the anodising broke an aluminum bolt in a M3 thread where they had no permission to put anything but nylon screws in......project at temporary halt :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :axe: :axe: :axe: :cry: :cry: :cry:

So.....finally got the project back on the track. Got the broken bolt out without bruising the thread :rock:

I just realized that I have run out of outputs from the PLC, so in order to make the step motor shut down when idle I have to get a bigger PLC.....now if I could have a little luck on ebay :roll:

Besides that all that's left is to get my BOSOZ done, but I still havn't finished the PSU PCB's, so that may be a while. I finished the amp PCB's a couple of weeks ago, what a nightmare :Hangman:

OK, time for an update. I made the boxes and the stands during the last couple of month. The top and bottom plates of the boxes are made of carbon....just for kicks, as it's almost as good for heat transfer as copper.
