NHSD - DIY Mark Head Shell

Post by lions » Sat Dec 22, 2018 7:37 pm

Just about finished this. Built a shell for my Mark III 60W, although it'll soon be housing a IIIc+/++. It's a little imperfect because it was done with hand tools and I'm a total carpentry novice, but I think it came out great. Because I knew it would always look a little rough I thought painting it would work better than tolexing - it will inevitably get scuffed up and knocked about, plus I can sticker it up this way. I went with Olympic White nitro paint, which was a learning curve. Technically it's still curing but again, it's supposed to be a bit beat up so I'm not too fussed. I've noticed the chassis is actually sitting a bit further back than I'd like so I'll figure a way to redrill the mounting holes on the incoming amp, or figure out an alternate mounting solution. Same with the screws, the ones in it now are from the combo, but I'll be getting some longer ones and some washers so it looks a little neater.

Anyway, pics!

Nice
The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.
