So, I pulled the chassis and daughter boards out and started scratching my head. How on earth was I going to going to get some 10mm holes accurately drilled into the front of this thing? Where to put them and how to measure them?
I decided the only way to proceed was to measure things up and then draw a mask. That way I could sticky tape the mask to the casing, line it up carefully, cross my fingers and then pull the trigger on the cordless drill.
Here's how it looked:
|Mask taped down and midpoints marked with a Sharpie|
|First hole drilled|
|4 holes down. Not perfect... but acceptable|
|Ugh! What a mess!|
|Tube balanced against a toddler's chair|
|Overheard view of the precarious mess|
|Chassis and case need to be exposed to hook the controls up|
And... one knob in place! Works well. Really well. Just need those other five...
|Width knob in place|
