With some of the components finished, I started thinking about what the final project would look like. My initial thought was to build a slanted console and arrange the panels on top much like the CT-650 pictured in the Description above or a Minivac 601. But when I started thinking about Max Maxfield and Joe Farr's talk about implementing their computer as a: "...a series of glass-fronted wooden cabinets" plus the very nature of the Working Digital Computer as a teaching tool I changed my mind. Instead I designed some simple stands to hold the panels upright at a small angle:
The components will be wired together with quick connects so they can be easily detached and examined. It's my convertible with the top down look.
BTW here is a sneak peek at my Control Panel implementation with a clue to where I will be going with it.
