I hope you haven't spent your money, @stewblack because things are progressing more quickly than I'd expected. The cab kits are likely to be here early next week - probably before everything else is ready. If you can collect, you can probably have your kit next week if you don't mind waiting for the other bits and pieces.

I don't mind waiting, I'll pm you we'll sort something out.

I'm not in a desperate hurry for delivery, but f you need paying now just say.  Don't want you sitting on a pile of costs while you wait for all the bits to arrive.

OK, everyone who has a kit on order should receive a pm about payment today.

I've just uploaded a new Parts list with info on the grilles. Unfortunately, I've also noticed that tinypic has gone out of business, which means that we've lost lots of the photos from this thread. I'll try to upload the assembly photos as soon as I can, as I'm sure some people will want to refer to them during their builds.

The cabs kits have been machined and I plan to collect them early next week.

Crossovers underway....

I fancy doing mine in TurboBlue - does anyone want to share a 2.5Kg tub of that colour, no 1Kg tubs to be had I can find. Would 800g be enough to do one cab ?

Plenty, Aidan. A cab uses about half a litre, although you can apply more if you like.

I ordered a 1kg tub, they said it was a 3 month lead time and it arrived about 18hrs after ordering !

Everyone on the waiting list for the first batch of cabs should now have received a pm from me with all the info re. payment and delivery. If you haven't received one, please let me know.

Hi Hashmash,

I'm organising two batches of ten cab kits. The first ten are all taken and are about to be delivered to their builders. The second batch will be available around the end of October. Some of these have already been reserved but there are still some left. If you'd like one, just send me a pm and I'll put you on the list.

Stevie

Update: I now have all the cab kits and they look lovely! The Celestion compression drivers will be with me on Friday, by which time I should have some of the crossovers ready.

Anyone wanting to collect is welcome to do so at the weekend. I'm going to start sending boxes of goodies out next Monday. It'll take me a few days to pack everybody's orders up. I just hope the local supermarkets and stores have enough spare cardboard boxes.

I've scanned through the thread and probably missed it. But what is the cost of the cab kit?

Super impressed with Blue Aran - ordered bits yesterday pm, arrived this afternoon in darkest Lincolnshire.  I love seeing a group of people getting something like this off the ground, so another thanks to everyone involved.

As promised, I've ordered another 10 cabinet kits from my CNC supplier. I've sorted out the minor niggles that cropped up on the last batch, like the position of the handle holes (thanks to Luke for the drawing) and the width of the rebates.

The kits should be available mid-December - so call it an early Christmas present to yourself or a project to keep yourself occupied during your Christmas break. About five Basschatters have already reserved kits from this second batch (thanks for your patience!), which means that five are still available.

There won't be any more when these are gone.

While I wait for delivery, I'm going to order up various smaller items (handles, screws, feet, wadding, etc) so that you don't have to order from lots of different places. When I've got it organised, I'll put the information in the Parts List on page one of this thread. You will have to order the Chinese cabinet corners, however, and I'd suggest you do that now. The ad for eBay item number: 39235207159 claims to ship from Ireland - so you might like to order those.

I've now sorted the grille fixing situation to my satisfaction, which means that the grille frame is no longer necessary - saving time and weight. I'll supply the fittings free with the kit if you ask me for them. There is a possibility that I could buy a batch of aluminium grilles and get them powder coated, but that will depend on the costs I'm quoted. I'll let you know.
