Wondering if anyone has a company they deal with that can make a one off front panel and post anodize / black brushed aluminum. I have used Front Panel Express, but they can't post anodize, so all edges are silver. Thanks.
Wow! Nice to hear from you. I hope you're well and ok also. I assume you're living in the UK, and are referring to Schaeffer AG in Berlin ( sister company of FPE ) They will do it, but I spoke with FPE in Kent, WA, and they said no, they can't. Send me a PM, we can catch up.
I'll send you a PM for sure
But, yes I'm in the UK now so it'll have been Schaeffer where I saw that info. Sorry about that. Seems odd that FPE don't offer the same deal tbh.
The only other way I can think of if dealing with FPE would be a bit of hassle.
You buy a 19" panel from them that's natural anodized and brushed with the rack holes and, if you want, also the holes for whatever you need on the front.
They send that to you and you have it re-anodized the all black colour that you want wherever near you can do it.
Then send the panel back to FPE as "use customer material" to have your script and anything else you want printed or engraved on it etc.
Maybe wait to see if any US folks come along on here with alternative places that could do one- off panels for you though, I'm not up on who does what or where these days over there, sorry mate.
