GlowBug 40
Glowbug 40 kitt
Here is my GlowBug 40 kit and a piece of Aluminum I bought to make the top of the chassis. For the bottom Dwight KG4HSY recommends wood, and Lucite for the sides:
The dimensions of the piece of metal before I had it bent was 13" X 4 3/8". The metal is bent 90 degrees, 4 1/2" from each end. This forms two sides 4 1/2" high. The cabinet is 4" wide across the top and of course 4 3/8" from front to back. The metal sides over a 4" X 4" X 3/4" block of wood which forms the base of the transmitter. The metal is 3/8" deeper than the wood base so this forms an overhang over the front piece of Lucite. I used 1/4" Lucite. If you use 1/4" Lucite you will have to countersink the plastic nut on the key jack. You could leave the nut off and you wouldn't have to do any countersinking.

I've started on bulding this, finally.
