hmmm I know I posted a reply last night. That's twice in 2 days my posts have disappeared. I guess I offended the forum fairies or something
I'm already planning to build it and get everything working before I do anything with the case. Since my friend who is going to do the machining lives out of state, I want to be able to provide accurate measurements to him. So I'll definitely test the switch in my proposed location.
If everything thinks I will have a problem with this idea though, maybe I shouldn't order my nice, and expensive, chrome switch with an LED in it. If I end up putting the power switch on the back, then there's no point using the fancy one
So you don't think running the wire inside some braided copper shielding would help? My plan was/is to run it down the side of the enclosure. I'll try using one of the upper slots and see if that helps.
Anyway, Mouser got back to me on my question, so I placed the order for the rest of my parts. Everything is coming now except the tubes. I'm still undecided on what tubes to get or where to source them. Right now I'm leaning towards Parts Connection.
