Dear friends,

it's totally a reuse of abandon parts. The case itself is an old amplifier for a car. And the rest is custom cut...out of old equipment. The thing you see above the toriod transo is something from an old CD player. beneath its something from the rest of the case.


Totally junk parts...and figuring something out and make it nice. The two barrels left and right are a re-use parts.

This case isn't on the market...just being creative. Taping holes for screwes etcetera.
It's looking nice he :) I also sended the picture to Velleman....maybe they do something with it.


The orange light on the backside is something not that succesfull. It lightens up all the time...also when the switch is "off"


Here you see other things i've made:

Just a hobby :) It takes some time....others go party with friends in the weekend...i like my soldiering iron ;)
Over time I also have a lot of spare parts. I just keep them organized in one closet. (otherwise my partner will by angry). My hobby don't has to be her's :)


Why i posted this on this forum is that I really like Dave's video's on dumpster diving :) You should do more with the things you find Dave:) Big hug from Belgium - Europe.

I should send you a postcard. 2 years ago I was in Malaysie..not that far away from Australia. there were a lot of poeple from Australia @Malaysia.

Some guy even told me that we should move to australia. (my wife is nurse....and i'm a physical therapist).
They were from Melbourne.

That can be fixed, it's just swapping the inlet and outlet pair of wires over so the power comes into the switch on the side without the neon

thanks Richard! To simpel to be true....but indeed!!!! Thank you alot
Sometimes I'm that busy figuring out something and forget the smaller things. thank you alot.
The neon on the second switch brake...offcourse! Switching the power cord to the other side is the solution.
Thank you
