For the folks around here who use the Hammond style project box chassis, or straight up DIY and bend it from scratch, what pointers & advice do you have? Required tools? Is it worth it? Faceplate/lettering info? Just looking at what to expect. Those big Hammond boxes are so much cheaper -- it's looking tempting, but I don't want to start something that just ends up being more trouble than it's worth, or I have to invest much for new tools to work with it. My granddad always said, "You'll usually go broke saving money." His words have proven right on several occasions in the past. I've done one out of a 16ga galvanneal blank chassis Mojo used to sell. Only hole in it was for a Princeton or Deluxe sized PT. Everything else for my 5e3 was drilled & punched. It was a damn job, but it was the first time I'd done ANY of this stuff before. Obviously, aluminum would make a much easier job of it. So, anyone with good or bad experience here please chime in and add some info for those of us who are curious.
