Decided to remove some pics from previous posts as photobucket kept sending emails to me on "over usage limits".  Spam or not, I think some house keeping won't hurt and that's what I did.  The house keeping eventually got serious this year which saw me getting rid of my Thorens belt drive TT and Denon DD TT.  Also got rid of 2 preamps, 2 poweramps, 1 DAC and loads of loose parts.  With a lighter inventory its time to see what else I can make.  Have a left over project and had always felt that the chassis looks dated and not to my liking.  Decided to rework on a new chassis.  Save all the details on wood and metal work I have come up with the following.  More than 150 holes drilled over 2 weekends.  Seriously could not imagine how my neighbors tolerate that.

After that was placement and wiring started 2 days ago.  Will try to keep things simple for that matter.

Sharing via summary in google drive as most of the photo hosting site are not friendly towards what I wanted to do.  Anyways I am into my last amp rebuild for the year!  Rather happy with the progress and hope to complete as intended.

Thanks Jaffrie!  No choice just too many already.  I am rotating between 4 or 5 Amps and 2 sets of speakers.  Plus tube amp parts are heavy and take up lots of space.  Think 3 will be ideal for my case :)
