Love exotic woods, some are very toxic care must be used when sanding. Purple Heart is awesome in high gloss, Zebra Wood, are some of my favs.  Nice Job on that Paul (Pat) LOL

I have been making stylish hardwood tube buffer chassis. I made Barry one in a karma exchange. He is going to build an X-10 clone for it. I have one for sale here that looks kinda like a Carver handled unit. Feedback is wanted and welcome on design or ideas. I have prior version one on e-bay now to test viability. I'm trying to figure out the retail value. I am asking $125 on this one (feedback wanted in pm). The buffer is for demo only. The chassis is for sale. I will show Barry's and another as well.
 
This is fantastic work and looks great. I have a X-10D clone built into my Onkyo C-7030 done by Kevin and it needed a extra transformer to power it and three pairs of RCA's so it could be wired up to my C-1 External Processor Loop. I love it and use it with CD and vinyl playback.
 
I'm wondering where the RCA's and the transformer are mounted?

Here are the photo's that Kevin posted as he worked on my Onkyo C-7030 and turned it into a C-7030t.
 
He also used Bugle Boy Tubes from Holland 1964 I think. Kev swears by his beloved Bugle Boy Tubes  Cool

I am looking over my chassis as it came this evening! Making very few mods to get my parts to fit! Enlarging rca holes by about a mm, I'm going to mount the transformer on back of the back panel! I need to enlarge oval with minor filing to get my socket to fit, and drill 4 small holes to feed wires from transformer! This is going to come together quite nice!

The rcas will mount in the four holes on back panel!

Let's just see what X10 clone that I have here might go with this beast. Something says that it will be a good match.
