Scope Clock Due - Chassis and Dust Cover for a D10-230 CRT - Obsolete


The base (or reference) design used a Brimar D10-230 100mm diameter CRT. The page describes a case comprising a chassis and a dust cover. The chassis is available as a kit.

Although the D10-230 CRT has now sold out, I am currently preparing a number of other CRTs for sale with the Scope Clock Due and have photographs and movies of them in operation.

The photograph above shows a dust cover with welded joints. The design is stil available for download but it proved a very expensive dust cover to buy and, especially, post. The current design uses laser cut acrylic sheets an 3D printed parts. So consider this D10-230 design obsolete.

Do you want a complete kit? Do you want a minimal kit - just the custom made parts? I will develop a price for a kit which suits your needs.

Dust Cover

The chassis is designed to accept a loose fitting 3mm thick clear acrylic dust cover. These are typically made to protect and display sports memorabilia and the like. The chassis is designed to sit in a rebate around the edge of the base.

In developing a design for an acrylic dust cover I quickly found that there were a large number of companies (at least in the UK) who offer the service of custom made acrylic covers. The quality (and price) of the covers varied considerably. And additionally the postage (as it is a fairly bulky albeit light object) can be a significant part of the cost.

For these reasons I am not supplying the dust cover myself. If I did this I would have to pay the postage cost to where I live and then the postage to you. I would have to pay local tax (currently 20%) but if you are outside the UK then you would not pay this tax. All these charges, excess postage, tax and so on I would pass on to you. The upshot of this is I concluded that it would be far cheaper if you bought the dust cover directly from a manufacturer.

The design is of course open.
