I bought some black matte spray paint at Home Depot today for the TR-4 cabinet After a nice lunch at ELKS, I came back here to work and hammered out the chassis. Very tedious and time taking. 32 separate holes were drilled , half of them tapped and the other half countersunk. The 2 top plates were not mounted yet until I have the transformer ready to mount. There is so much room in this 15 inch chassis! It is really sturdy! I can stand on it and not compress it at all! I remember a metal place up in Escondido where I can buy flat sheets of aluminum. Thats where I got the perforated aluminum I needed to make the top shield of the SR-400. I will hafta see if I have some of that left. I know I have a whole sheet of it but it is stainless steel. I can't even begin to cut that with the SHEAR! The shear doesn't like thick metal at all. In fact we use it to cut PCBs so I break it the boss will have KITTENS!!!! The Harbor Frieght shear is very delicate! But all measurements agree closely within a Millimeter or so on the Chassis! QRZed is witnessing the FRANKENSTEIN type CREATION here of a new entity!
