Wooden control panels
Blank and pre-punched panels to use with the small chassis
This selection of panels is made from mahogany (dark) or bass wood (blonde). I use the 3-hole mahogany version in the WF-55 amplifier. All versions are sized and punched to match the size and holes on the small chassis. You can use any typical wood finish for these – e.g. Danish oil, etc.
There are two special versions in blonde wood with laser-etched text labels: Input – Volume – Tone – On. These are ideal for Tweed Princeton and similar style amplifiers. The second version is drilled identically, but the control labels are in the other order (On – Tone – Volume – Input). This is for those amp builders who want to hang the chassis ‘upside-down’. Make sure you order the right one, or your labels will be upside-down when it’s mounted!
Dimensions & info
Each panel is 253mm wide, 50mm tall and 1.6mm thick. There are mahogany versions with 0, 3, 4 and 7 holes, each hole being 10mm in diameter. The control spacing is 30mm centre to centre – i.e. a total of 180mm between the two outer holes. The blonde wood panels have 4 holes, and you can reverse the panel if you prefer not to have any text labels.
