Hello,

After years I have my 5003 pair ready to work!

And now I whan't to know if anyone can send me a frontpanle file?

Thank's Dominic

It's actually not hard to make your own, use the front panel designer for that.
You could ask Peter for the panel dimensions or measure it yourself.

Just acquired 5 of the PeterC 5003 EQs but not happy with the Front Panel. Just bumping this thread to see if anyone has fpd files for it please. Couldn't see any on link above. I can use existing as template but if someone has file already then measurements will be more accurate. Thanks!

Hi TOm

They seem to have disappeared from the link above, I will look for them again.
Peter
Thanks Peter, would really appreciate that.

I have attached pics of my ones, they were in bad shape with all the knobs and pots potted with some black goo but i fixed them up. Put new Sifam knobs (couldnt find many knobs to fit the small 4mm shafts). The front panels seem to be some kind of sticker on top of the pabel and are peeling in places so would like to get redone all in black.

4 of them have the APP205E opamp pictured but one of them has an SMD PPA opamp, can anyone identify it please? Swear it sounds much creamier

Also, have had no success finding actuator for the bypass button. Have bought a few and been too small or large. Does anyone have a part number please?

Are you using the C&K switch? Caps are listed in the datasheet page 6
A black cap would be F01-01

That's great! Thanks so much Peter, really appreciate it
Your sheet-metal fabrication shop just -- might -- find this drawing to be a bit more "user friendly". However, you can use whatever you wish to use. The format is what your sheet-metal shop "expects" to see and the "language" used in the attached mechanical drawing is what your sheet-metal shop "expects" to read and understand. In addition, all of the dimensions shown within the drawing that PeterC provided are called "Chain Dimensions" and by the time you take into account all of the tolerances and whatnot, the hole on the farthest right-side would probably end up falling off of your panel.

In addition, depending upon wherever it is that you are located on planet Earth and the capabilities of your sheet-metal shop, in today's CAD-design world, lots of sheet-metal shops are able to take the attached SolidWorks file I have included here and directly make your metal part from it!!! You can do the same thing for an entire rack-mount chassis if you want to.

The actual 3D CAD-design file of the above image is attached to this message, but due to limitations of this forum, I had to rename the file extension in order to attach it here. So, all ya gotta do is rename the attached file > API -- 500-Series EQ Front-Panel - SolidWorks CAD-File.pdf < to finally read as the following >> API -- 500-Series EQ Front-Panel - SolidWorks CAD-File.sldprt << and that is the file you can send to your sheet-metal shop if they happen to accept these types of files.

GOOD LUCK!!!
