Blank eurorack odd sizes?

Post by dkcg » Sat Nov 08, 2008 8:48 pm

I'm looking for a 12 space blank panel, it it has holes it's fine, but hwere would I find something like this for eurorac? 8 and 4 seem common, but does anyone carry 12hp? I plan on making a joystick controller with it, got a joystick, and a schematic, but need a panel. Don't make me make an external box. :eek:

Thanks.

reichelt.de carries them - or that is, it's *roughly* 12HP, or indeed what must be 12HP, it's 6.06cm wide.

(gah, that link doesn't work! but scroll down a bit you'll find the blanks)

otherwise it's off to http://www.onlinemetals.com and break out the hacksaw :) hehe, or mouser...

damn, i was trying to order a bunch but my german just is not good enough to navigate the site.
Even through babelfish i just couldnt do it.

Anybody know any other sites that might have 12hp blanks? I need a ton of them for the stuff i am building.

i need about 10 for the various projects i got lined up. Mostly bridechamber, yusynth, and cgs stuff i got planned.

I might have a local alternative tho...
I was just conversing with a neighbour who has a bench shear and some other cool smithing stuff so i might be fab'ing my own.

I could make you up an acrylic panel for very little if you wanted?

only problem with acrylic is that i find they interfere with grounding.

They would look nifty tho...

I can do plastics, I wish I had your neighbor chinard. :)

I was hoping something like a 10 or 12 hp panel would be standard blank size somewhere.

Thanks peeps
