Custom Fatman Front Panel

Post by Jaaaku »

Hi there, I just ordered a Fatman. I'm pretty excited, but I am a "total noob" as well.

My brother works with metal and he's gonna make me a custom front panel. He's gonna drill holes for the pots, but Im wondering what measurements the holes should be?

This is my first build so all advice is welcome! Thanks, J

Hello J. A quick measure shows the pots need a 5/16" hole. The switches and LEDs are 1/4". The 1/4" phone jack needs a 3/8" hole and the 5pinDIN connectors a 23/32". The RCA phono connector openings are 11/32". Here's to success with the project!

You're the man! That'll help me get started more quickly!

I'll have to get some measuring tools myself though...
