Re: Chassis Q's, how do you guys bend them?
That's a good question Rich. I will be talking with a local shop on Monday and will place an order for one chassis to see how it comes out. I will talk with them about doing what you're asking about. They use a break machine from what I understand to bend the chassis. I was going to buy a whole sheet and bend it myself but would have to set up something just for that otherwise it won't be tight bends.  
I'll see what I can find out from this end. This first chassis for me will be used to experiment with a variety of circuits - whatever comes to mind and from reading other posts here. So it will probably never ever be put into a cab. But in the future I will have a more exact chassis made for the purpose of a complete amp. Like anything else in life, it seems the tiny details are more troublesome.  
Hopefully someone else will have some answers for what you're asking. Take care, T.B.
