Hey all...to keep myself busy while waiting for paint to dry on my case (not a big fan in watching the process) I have been working on my front switch panel.
I have purchased these sweet switches
And have cut out a piece of acrylic to mount them in one of the front mesh drive covers.
Note: I was planning to use the saw pictured in first pic.... i did manage to persevere through one cut before running to Bunnings to buy a $40 rotary driver....mmmm power. BTW I am soooo glad that i did...cos if i got frustrated cutting plastic by hand i wouldn't have had a hope in hell of cutting the case with that saw.
Now my next dilemma is the switch layout, which i have to decide on soon so i can drill holes and paint panel. My two current thoughts (in general i sometimes have more...but 2 will do for now) is to either have the switches flush along the bottom or to center them vertically (think i am swaying towards vertically centered). This is sort of how the 2 options would look. The switches all have a illuminated blue ring around them.
Power switch will be 25mm in diameter, reset 18mm, and light switches 22mm.
Other people's points of view would be greatly appreciated at this time.
