Loudest Warning format 17″ clee boat (v2-alloy)
I have made a small batch of Craig Lee’s LW format boats, with permission.
These are the v2 units, allowing for alloy construction, and finished in super matt.
These alloy units rely on steel insert strip for their threading. This was to enable Craig’s original design to be revised for alloy construction (due to the inability of alloy to hold a thread).
The inserts required are the “tapped strip” commonly used in eurorack systems. M3 or the more commonly available M2.5 both fit, but both require one hole to be trimmed to meet the 17″ spec.
You can get your hacksaw out, or buy pre-trimmed strip from me here.
note: the units do not come with the threaded inserts as standard (builders may well have their own, or may be able to source M2.5 cheaply where they are) nor do they come with blanking panels, or screws
