What Boats Were Used for the COA Vintage Voltron Panels?

The old VV4 I had came with a pretty rugged boat, much sturdier than the Bud enclosures I've seen. I picked up a VV6 without a boat a while ago and, horror of horrors, I resorted to drilling holes and in an R*S boat and fastening the panel with zip ties. It'd be nice to free up that boat for other uses, though - especially if we're only talking a 30, 40-dollar spend for the real thing.

Thanks!

The other one is a Hammond, you can tell the difference as they have angled corners, rather than err not - or something lol, check out Mouser:

AFAIK there are only Bud and Hammond for DIY in this size, the BUD has folded over 'square' ends, check the datasheets as people use Bud interchangeably for both!

Have found "pem-style" M3 press-in threaded inserts work pretty well with the Hammond cases for creating arbitrarily positioned fastener points for panels.

(can't remember exactly which ones - but any of these look like they'd work)

You need to drill the exact diameter hole to accept the component and then squeeze it into the hole (from the backside of the lip) - using an arbor press or something. A c-clamp (non-wobbly side towards the part), works in a pinch.

I've used hand rivet guns like this:



with bud and hammond boats. works great.
