i don't know if this should be in 'building x0x' or here.
i'm posting it here anyway.
this is just blabla waffle right now:
ok i've got a PT10 case for my x0x, and although it is very practical,
i'd like to rehouse everything in an alu case, with a lower profile.
ideally so that i can slide it into a 2U high space, say.
*nearly there* with the pactec (which has a .303 dimension believe it
or not) but it does risk ripping the knobs off etc.
i've seen the x0xsh0p case, and it won't fit the standard faceplate
they supplied me with, it's a different kit, and i don't want it to be
that big anyway. i'm looking to reduce the size of the machine a
bit; the x0xio cases are just about perfect in that Schaeffer(?) kit,
but i understand some components have to be moved to make space.
not sure it would work with the standard faceplate though, as the
pcb is bigger than the faceplate..
so i've downloaded the PT10 drawing to have a look at dimensions,
it's a bit hard to identify the ones i need to look at, and it's all in
imperial, - i was hoping to come up with something i could just drop
the old faceplate into, with a cutaway at the back for the rear panel,
and end up with a utilitarian plain box like the project boxes you get
from Maplins etc.
but no, not so simple. even the x0xshop kit requires a new back plate,
