Hello people,

I had a mail exchange with Tomek, a friend of Casper, which seems to really have troubles (hospital).

I have listed all the points to correct in future (silcksreening quality, square holes size, graduation size & output labeling).
I will only buy again an enclosure from him if all those points are corrected.
Otherwise I will mount an acrylic enclosure or just forgot this mod and sell my Cocteau project (unhappy....)
Hope it helps

I didn't go until this part as I don't have the two MTA 2-pins connectors missing in the BOM first version and that it wouldn't be pratictal to solder cables instead while I will need to put the Cocteau in and out of the case a few times again. If there is enough room, let's enlarge holes and put 6.35 mm jacks maybe..?

EDIT: after looking more at it, it seems very unlikely to be able to put 6.35 mm jacks here... maybe the simpliest ones which aren't boxed could just fit... Or for 3.5 mm jacks we would have to use washers I think.

After having sand the on-off switches holes so they well travel until making contact, I now seem to have my Cocteau almost fully working (just miss the MA-CL-2 things). I also had to change the screws which hold the upper and lower parts of the case together for M4 ones.

It was a lot of job but now I can really appreciate the positive sides of this project, as no flaw (except scratches) persisted.

Anyone heard anything from Kacper? I received a case for the cocteau where the silk screen has basically crumbled even though I only stored it in a cupboard ahead of starting my build for x-mas holidays ... only noticed it late this November. Should I just give up and see if paypal perhaps can help with protection somehow?

note: I've had great experience with Kacper for the first set of enclosures, so hoping this is just something less serious in everyday life that has gotten between.

Need to re-silkscreen my enclosure as well. The paint rubs off with just a nail... Has anyone managed to hear from Kacper?

It would be great if somebody could supply an Cocteau case that fits well - switched etc - and is screened correctly.

I'm not sure how many folks are out there requiring this but it makes sense to do a head count in the hopes of getting as case-maker interested.

I would be up for one!

Anyone heard from Kacper? Who is this friend Tomek? Anyway to get in touch with him? I'd like to know what's going on with the re-paints. If it's not going to happen, I'd like to get my enclosure back. This is not really about money... more about to be able to finish this build, even with not-so-perfect enclosure. Help, anyone?
