Yep... much better diameter... this is my top choice at the moment.

Ah yes, the hificollective people I once bought some hifi connectors from them and of course got added to their newsletter list. I asked them MULTIPLE times to remove me from their mailing list but they ignored each and every request. This went on for a year until I repeatedly reported their spam to their web hosting company ( which I had openly told them I would do if they would not stop sending their spam ).

Having finished the PCB builds and then had a little break I have now made a start on the metalwork. Today I have drilled the front panel. First of all I sellotaped a full scale print out of the front panel design with cross hairs on each hole position and used a centre punch through the paper template to mark the drill hole positions. Luckily I have a pair of solid steel speaker stands (which my brother-in-law kindly built for me) which serves as a perfect ad-hoc bench-block.

Having punched all the positions, I drilled out all the holes using my cheapo (Wickes) pillar dill set to its slowest speed - 600 RPM. I picked up a stepped cone drill bit off eBay to cut the XLR holes and was very surprised how easily and cleanly it cut these large 24mm holes.

All holes were de-burred and I ended up having the file the phantom power switch holes a little as they weren't in precisely the right place (they were offset to the left by about 1mm).

I have also done a quick test fit of the preamp and DI boards as well as a set of 5 LED lens clips (for the VU meter) to check everything fits. So far, except for a slightly wavy line of LEDs on the right hand channel, the fits looks very good.

Below are the all important pictures.

Yep, resurrecting an old thread as I finally found some time to finish the internal wiring of my preamp. Next job will be tests and VU meter calibration. I only need the meters to give a useful indication rather than accurate metering... more important is that they are both closely matched to each other.

Here's a couple more pics.

I envy you DIY skills there, Dave! Looking good.
Could you throw a Mac Pro equivalent together there for me? And an 003? And a Command 8?
