    That is excellent work. Well done sir.
    "unjumped" is it a word?
    It is now:p I shall continue to use it..

    Are you planning on another enclosure? Something fit for the best electronics benches.

    No, I wasn't really planing to make a custom enclosure - I was thinking along the lines of mounting the circuit board directly to the front of the PSU so you can see all the electronics stuff.

    If I had a laser cutter I would probably make a case out of clear acrylic or wood, but as it stands, I haven't been able to afford one with my limited income. :D

    Hmm, wouldn't it be nice to have a lazer cutter. And the space for it too!!

    I 'ONCE' left an amplifier circuit open 'to see the electronics'........:(
    Sometimes when snipping off the excess leads from components, you can only find 8 out of 10.........
    You 'HEAR' the other 2........Lol..:p

    That's a good point. Maybe I'll try and cover up just the back side of the circuit board where the fuses will be...

    Thanks Adam. But if it wasn't for you guys here on the forums, I probably wouldn't have come anywhere near as far! :)

    Man, it seams like it's been a loooooong time since I last posted! Been pretty busy lately...

    I recently acquired a 3D printer, so I printed out a front case for the PSU - I made a (final?) update to the project log under the "project log" tab.
