What will it cost to freight ezChassis to me?
You can explore the checkout part of the website without accidentally ordering, there you can see the cost for a couple of freight options to your part of the world. Freight is calculated and charged at cost for the weight of items you have chosen. As a rough guide, sending an ezChassis to Australia is ~A$25, to USA & Asia ~US$50 and to Europe ~€45. All freight options include basic insurance, some include Track & Trace. Shipping gets proportionally cheaper with weight, so combine your order with a friend.

I want to build a valve amp using ezChassis but I’m using a different number of valves than you allow for on the top plate. (4 power, 4 driver)
For a smaller number of valves, you can usually use the holes to house power supply capacitors, bias meters or bias controls. If you need to house more valves you can order the top panel 432704, which has 5mm holes on a 40mm grid, you will then have to drill these out to the size you need. Or ask, we might be able to do a ‘special’.
Can I get ezChassis in other colours or non-magnetic materials?
Look at the 'Panel Shop' part of the website to see some options. Otherwise tell us what you'd like! We can do many things given time and a small premium.
Why does ezChassis use self-tapping screws?
Self-tapping screws are an '‘engineering’' choice for ezChassis. It is important to distance their calculated usage here, where they are used in the correct size hole that is punched to tight tolerances (<0.05mm) from the '‘haphazard' usage where a drilled (and thus not round) hole is used. When done properly, it should be almost impossible to 'strip' them. The advantages are flexibility, ease of use (Hate dropping nuts inside somewhere inconvenient?) and the availability of 'low profile’' heads. Of course if you really don’t want to use self-tappers it’s easily possible to use 1/8" nuts and bolts.
