    Khozmo Display Mounting?

    Post by Jedidiah on Wed Oct 24, 2018 12:48 pm

    What are you folks doing to mount the LED display to the inside the windows of the SP13/14 front panel?

    I am in the process of building my SP14 and realized there are no mounting points on the panel. The pictures i see of builds look to have adhesive of some sort.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have not done an SP14, but I have done a number of units requiring the mounting of meters or displays. I don't like tapes or other similar materials as they age badly, leave much behind if removed and so forth. I tend to use hot-melt glue that is also "museum quality". It ages well, may be removed easily, but has very good bonding characteristics.

    One of many sources:

    Most of the time, the likes of Michael's stocks similar materials.

    hot glue is also my go to for things like this. Unless someone came up with something i was missing, it was likely the route i was going to take.
    thank you for replying.
