Hi,
Does somebody knows where it is possible to order that type of metal work ?

Wow, what is that?

Looks like photo etched meta (alu?), but with a non-metal center layer!?

Quite nice.

I googled photo etched alu, but this looks like etchings are filled. I dont think it looks like that on your pic.

Im guessing the rugged look would be a matter of designing it that way + some wear.

...could also be a PCB, actually.

In other words - I have no idea, but I like it, and Ill have to investigate how hard it is to make alu photosensitive.  :)

Etched Metal. Ask Lukas for advice.

SSLtech: No bypass, I don't believe in it.
Gus: I think this build might have problems with DIY builders that don't know things like ohms law.
