A lot quieter . . . think I saw 24 dBA somewhere but don't quote me. There is a spec in PDF out there somewhere but I can't find it right now. Found it: http://datasheet.octopart.com/KDE120...eet-605185.pdf

Here's one: http://www.google.com/products/catal...4585227467012#

Apparently <22 dBA.

To answer the question about turning the power supplies off/on I plug them into a plugstrip and flip the switch. I can use the other outlets for my Tx or phone charger.

My "single" receptacle powerstrip to turn on/off the power supply.

The rest of the clutter protects my workbench from those harmful dust particulates.

Just out of curiosity, what is wrong with just plugging in the power supply when you want to use it?

My wife's on/off switch for her curling iron is the plug too. I end up replacing/servicing that plug and wires at least a couple of times a year. Designed duty cycles for a switch are probably much higher than those for the plug I'd bet.

I'm lazy too; just easier to flip a switch for me.

Throw the first switch Egor . . . yeeesss, Master. Always wanted a largish working knife switch that threw sparks in my workshop. Ah, the sweet perfume of ozone.

Brian, very nice like the switch idea. I got one of mine built tonight but waiting till morning to cut the aluminum. I ditched the switch idea, I'm just going to use one of those power strips with short cords on the PS. I used the crimp on lug to 10 gauge wire and screwed it down to the posts for positive and negative like in akschu kit. But I think I might remove the posts and just solder the wires to the board, more room for the wires.

Well got mine built today and all I gotta say is, buy the kit for the $50. Not hard but to build but a lot nicer with the kit as everything is already done.

Well done, Akschu!

I assembled mine today as well, and all I can say is "Wow!" This is a well thought out and elegant solution to a potentially problematic mod. Thanks again for sharing your insight and expertise with those of us - like myself - who are electrically challenged, and I truly hope and pray that things are improving on the personal front.

Kind regards,

Stan

I like one too, my two power supplies arrived last week and I haven't figured out how to turn them on.

Can you tell me how to get/make some of those? I'm having a heck of a time trying to work with that terribly small ribbon cable, I'd GREATLY appreciate it if you'd help me out w/making the white wire headers or something.

Thanks!
