Radioreceiver in a retro look – Update: The case

IMG-20150130-WA0000-2 It’s time! The first picture of the absolutely real wooden housing for radio electronics is here. A beautifully crafted housing made of glued elements. This work comes from Gebhard’s hands, a master carpenter from the Upper Carinthian region;)

Housing with holes for the speakers

Jetzt kann das Nostalgie-Radioprojekt wieder einen Riesenschritt nach vorne machen.

This will be the aluminum front panel

The case is on our table. First, the holes for the speakers were drilled. Later these should be covered by a milled aluminum panel. So the next step is to construct the milling data for the front panel. Here again the layout tool “Eagle” is used. The data can simply be exported as a “.dxf” file and imported into the circuit board plotter software.

 

UPDATE:

Barely a few minutes, I went to the circuit board plotter, imported the production data, clamped the “two-cutter cutter”, of course, the aluminum blank and off we went.

The speed for the 1mm cutter I have chosen with 60000 rpm and set the feed rate to 1.5mm / s in both axes. Cooled and lubricated was the way with alcohol.

A not negligible amount of work is, by the way, the cleaning of the plant after the work done … 🙂
