Hello,

Thanks a lot for your answer.
Why do you call it eardrill?
Also, do you know the thickness?
I already used for a sequencer a material which is called Alunox.
Which kind of material Buchla used?

Best regards,

F

Thanks Teknik!

Well, I didn't know neigther heard anythink about eardrill before that post...
Interesting.

Concerning this Ydrium Material, I really don't know the equivalent name in Europe/France/Germany.

Someone knows it?
It would be the best to find the same material.

Thanks a gain,

hey, thats was a joke, Yttrium is extreme rare,and sometimes they mix it with alluminium to get a strong but lightweight alluminium. Very Happy

Any alluminium will work, i think trying to have the same brushing is the most importand if u want your panel looks like the original.

They have an epaisseur of 1,5mm

I already used Alunox in the past, for the midibox sequencer.
see the link following:
http://midibox.org/forums/forums.html?showtopic=8725

The surface is quite fragile to my taste... If a srew driver fall down on the surface, you get a scratch... Embarassed

By the way, I juste tuned again the sequencer yesterday. With VFD displays and the case is again consolidated...

I add soon some video on youtube of it driving some old stuff.

All the best,

f

My panels are .062" Aluminum, I think it's a 6061 alloy. Vertical grain brush finish. It would be good to get a sample of a Buchla panel to give your machine shop for grain matching. And before anyone asks, the Pantone color for the blue is 2935.

TekniK, thanks for posting the link.
