Disappointed by my first 2 Mojotone chassis for the 5e3, which suffered from severe peeling of electroplating, I decided to try a third, the tube depot. I received my Tube Depot one today. It’s not electroplated, but rather just straight up polished stainless steel. My first impressions: Size and cutouts are pretty well matched. The Mojotone (MT) is slightly longer, as you can see by the pictures. I don’t think the size difference is significant (but when it comes to the 5e3, bigger and more space is better right?). The cutouts for sockets, switches and jacks are basically the same. The power cable hole on the Tube Depot (TD) chassis has a round hole instead of the Mojotone “cutoff” circle. Not sure which will hole the wire strain relief better yet (but I’m guessing the MT will hold better) Polished stainless on TD, not quite as reflective as the MT. The corner welding job on the MT is very good. TD just folded the sides up, no welding! Not nearly as sturdy as MT. TD has a premounted grounding lug next to the PT cutout. Not sure what the point of that is. Anyone could drill a hole where they want and mount one. Why do I have to use this one? If I don’t like the placement I may end up grinding it off. Sheesh, I don’t like that! Finish work on edges of TD is a bit rough. Holes are deburred well, but the corners are VERY sharp. I may take a file to the, before I get started on it. Don’t want bleeding knuckles. Overall, I’m not sure I found the best chassis yet. I guess I like everything about MT except the VERY poor cosmetics. Anyone really happy about their chassis? Pics to follow. Sorry I don’t have a clean 5e3 chassis to compare. One MT is built another getting started. The built one is MT. The one with blue tape is also MT. The one in the middle labeled with standby is TD (also has a white protective film that I haven’t removed yet).
