    Lovely guide again. :D
    That subtle bit where the first rivet was pulled free by the 2nd. -MDF, everyone. :lol: A good idea there would have been to use some washers on the inside so the rivet head can't pull free.

    Best bet is to use ridged rivets, won’t pull free. Unfortunately I had to use MDF as it was literally the only panel material of the rift thickness I could get in time to make the case before it needed to be used. Won’t have that problem with ply, hexaboard, plastic etc.

    I'm gonna try my hand at this in time for Sping LAN at NEC. Hey Maki? what do you think the ballpark cost was on the video example?

    About £150-200 depending on what options you pick generally I’ve found
