DIY Eurorack Console Case – The Journey continues

| 2 Comments

Starting the detailed planning of the case for my modular Eurorack synth.

After spending a few month on creating my own Doepfer like Clicks and Clocks Eurorack power supplies (PSU) and busboards, I now continuing with planning and building the case. The main idea is to have wooden side wings which will enclose the aluminium rear and bottom panel. The construction will be kept together by threaded rods.

A bit more exact sketch of the case. The measurements are almost correct, the thickness of the side wings is 22mm. The case is planned as a double 19 inch sized case.

Here you find the latest SketchUp drawings.

I have most of the parts together, except the rear and bottom panels which will be made of bent aluminium plates. The idea is to pulver coat the aluminium parts after they are bended and the mount holes for the PSUs and busboards are drilled. The shape of the side wings need to be routed, as well as a thin groove that hold the aluminium panels. Still some manual work to do…

For the moment the side wings are planned to be made of solid multiplex wood, which you see on the picture above. I still think about buying solid walnut for the wings as it looks much better.

Next steps are the detailed drawings for the wood works and the aluminium parts. I will keep you updated. By the way, some of the PSUs and busboards are still available, just ask for the conditions.

    Hi psone, I usually buy all my rack stuff (z-rails, threaded strips etc.) from a German company called Gie-Tec http://www.gie-tec.de
    I have good experience with them. Schneidersladen and Doepfer also use material from Gie-Tec. I just ordered some z-rails, rack ears and threaded strips. What would you need? You can also send me an email info@clicksclocks.de
    Cheers
    Stefan
