SCROLL DOWN FOR PICS BELOW

hello guys,here a humble thread to explain ,how to build with an halliburton( second hand is cheaper)zero case 21x17x7,5 inches à easel case ,218/208 or 2x4u (200e compatible) Buchla format case.
Should be a nice case for serge panel too.
Big thanks to the great wiggler Apetechnology for the pics of the hinges mod ,he has sent me quickly ,after i asked him a few day ago.

finished the 2x4U ,travel case


I use my available easel kit ,its 2x4u boats powered -15/15/12/5V ,(a New swallow design psu soon )my face plate (here for a zero case halliburton 21"x17"x7,5") and my special rack ears +some parts ,you will discover in this thread.



here without countersunk screws and finition


All is possible the face is easy to work

First round ,put off old hinges
From Apetechnology

"i made a simpler mounting technique, i used washers. instead of machining a spacer plate. diy style!
Penn Elcom P0626EZ Zinc Plated Large Take Apart Hinges
i used 10 24 standard screws or 5 x.8 metric x 12mm with nylon lock nuts."
- first drill out the rivets holding the hinges.

-the second photo here shows using a "drift" to knock out rivets.








YOU WILL FIND MISSING PICS BELOW.SORRY


end of the first round

Then the round 2 :THE EASEL KIT simple installation

You will receive a ready easel kit assembled with or without custom holes ,audio out jack 6,35 ,bnc plug 12v lamp ...or even without the face with only the boats ears to have the boats at the good height (for other custom finition ,and free space ).



The tools you need:
Screw driver
Drill machine (hand)
M3 tool

Washer 3mm /14mm external
M3 screws min 45/50 mm max
Standoff 30mm or 2x15 mm
M3 nuts with plastic lock



Fix the boats kit ,see pic ,centered


Drill at 90° angle ,3 or 4 x 3mm holes thru the zero case ,too
In the upper boat ,extreme left (under seq) ,extreme right (under reverb) is better
cause the 208 rev2 cards ,not like the pic below .



On each holes,for me 3.

Fantastic, I got the lift off hinges from Zero Halliburton, at a premium unfortunately. But I never went so far as to make a flat panel surrounding the two boats. That part really makes it nice. Can't wait to find out about
it...

Hi, Boops. I would like to have a nice case like yours for my new easel. But the pictures in your threads seem to have broken. Do you have other pictures of your easel cases you can post for folks who admire you to see? Thank you! smile

Caused by the train wreck of a site that is Photobucket, the f*cktards. Their site worked really well, but they have managed to kill it. Can't see how they will recover from this, people (me included, deleting their accounts en masse).

Are there different sizes of these? What is the preferred size. Looking at one that says it’s 21x17x7. Sound about right?

That's the size that most people use for Easels, and the one Boops's panel works on.

I use the 21 x 17 x 7" for my 8u cases and the 24 x 18 x 7" size for my 10u cases.

Thanks!

hello, i would like to have a suitcase to hold my BEMI easel

i'm a bit confused with these posts, i just want to have a case, i don;t have metalworking skills, and i'd like something i can take onboard an aeroplane,

can anyone please build me one? ideally, in europe
boops
i think 21 x 17 x 7" dont work for the plane (Cabin)

55 cm x 35 x 25 cm or 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 is ok
