RE: [N8VEM-S100:5807] Re: NKK Switches for Mini FP

Wow, an Imsai-style acrylic front panel would certainly be a wonderful thing.
I would be good for two of those. Would a company such as Front Panel Express
be a possibility for productiion of such a thing? I think they work with most media.
Thanks for your hard work with the switch/parts project, Don.

Hi Don (& All)
   I too would be interested in a permanent mounting solution for the switches.  I do like Matt Turner's idea of using silk-screened PCB material for the front panel drilled for the LEDs & switch mounting.  
Holes in the corners could then me used to attach the PCB front panel to brackets for stability.  This would still leave a option on putting a IMSAI style mask behind acrylic if you wanted to go that route or you could leave it "as-is" for a more bare bones appearance. Do you think this is viable?
