First of all, the “guts” of this project was done by fellow Lumber Jock ajosephg who had posted his project of a computer power supply tricked out with some posts, 5 and 12 volt source voltage, a toggle switch, an led light and a dummy load resister. I was so enamored with his work that instead of copying it, I asked him if he would make me one just like his. He said he would and he did. What a guy !
Dealing with Joe was a real pleasure. At one point there seemed to be a problem with the power supply I had sent to him. He immediately offered to send me his own unit. We weren’t going there, but what integrity !!! It turned out that the PS I sent was slightly different than his, so he quickly found out that there was not a problem. I already had a second one coming to him, but before I could email that news, he had it fixed !
I got it today (Christmas in July) and basically threw together a box made entirely of leftover Kraftmaid 3/8 maple veneer and some matching scribe mold. For kicks, I threw a brushed coat of red paint onto the front surface of the power supply since I needed to leave the front and back open somewhat for cooling / fan circulation. No screws or brads anywhere, just the 2P-10 and accelerator. I shot all the raw edges with the Rustoleum Universal Satin Black. To finish, I put some non-skid feet on the bottom.
Thanks again, Joe… and thank y’all for stopping in.
