You can fabricate your own from PVC or ABS sheet material, which was readily available in the US in cut pieces. McMaster-Carr is great for raw stock. G-10 is a fiberglass epoxy
. Good but expensive. Another option to check is Front Panel Express. You download a design program which isn't too hard to learn, lay out the panel with all the holes and any lettering.
Almost literally any shape and size you want. Email
them the design file and they'll immediately send you a quote. Last time I worked with them, you could get plastic and aluminum
panels in various thicknesses, in several colors. They aluminum
could be plain, anodized or powder-coated. A couple of years ago, they did a special panel about 12"x12" with about 30 different holes and a lot of lettering for about $100. If your time is worth anything, you can't hardly make them as cheaply as they can.
And they have the best customer service
I have ever run into. They made a mistake on one order, which was being shipped to Panama
through a freight forwarder. When notified, they remade the part and paid to ship it direct to Panama
, which probably cost more than the panel. A week later, we got a hand-written apology from the company president.
