I have seen those colored ones in the store! :shock: And those wooden ones......... :o I have those same basic aluminum chassis! I am building two preamps using those, I wonder I could get just the wood side pieces for them?

So then Gio, have you decided what to build in those new and beautiful chassis of yours? I wonder if this preamp combo uses the same size chassis that you got. :mrgreen: I have the 1444-24, 12" x 8" x 3".

The large aluminum chassis are for Millett Uniamps.

The small black painted one is steel. I've never used steel for a tube chassis before and I have a metal hole punch I want to try out. It will likely be a tube preamp.
Cheers

Well, after a month or repeated emails and eventually demanding to talk to a top-level manager because I was being ignored, Digikey.ca finally gave me quotes!
(So much for corporate account priority :evil: )

13" HWCHAS: $113.20
17" HWCHAS: $136.77

1444-12CWW: $70.56
1444-16CWW: $73.48
1444-22CWW: $82.73
1444-24CWW: $94.67
1444-32CWW: $105.75
1444-33CWW: $116.30

So, what's the URL for this Tip-Top guy, Gio? :shock:

Cheers!

This is awesome stuff! Although I did see these chassis on the Allied Electronics site, my brain was asleep.

I'm fortunate to be a woodworker with tons of very pretty "scrap" bits left over from guitar builds and such. It's not a big deal to create sides for a standard chassis, and could be done by almost anyone with basic woodworking skills. Or better yet, a friend who is a woodworker!

Since seeing this I'm going to put wood sides on my ODDwatts. I don't "do" walnut 'cause I'm dreadfully allergic to the stuff, but I do have cherry, figured maple and other lovely stuff. A big advantage is it will raise the chassis by a quarter inch or so to improve air circulation.
Thanks, Gio!

I'd already decided on a chassis but just saw these today. The one I'm building for my Poddwatt is of the same style as the wooden ended chassis. The body is 3mm brushed stainless steel and the ends will be oak to match the room furniture. The steel cost me £22 delivered and the wood is free from a friend of a friend. Luckily there's a carpenter and a metal baser at work for routing out the end pieces and folding the steel as I don't have a folding machine and wouldn't fancy building one that will put a neat fold in 3mm stainless sheet.
