I managed to mount two Dark Stars side by side in a single MOTM size panel.
I used .100 Acrylite (plexi) so the theaded pots work fine for mounting. My
only complaint is that I cant find Alco style knobs small enough to
accomodate the pot spacing. I tried the Rat Shack brand but they are still
just a tad too wide - perhaps there is a .50 Alco without a skirt. The RS
knobs were useful on my Paia gear though...

I recently completed a Blacet Frequency Divider with most of the divisions
brought out to the panel.
To mount the 16 jacks & the PCB on one 2U panel,I tilted the board so the
knobs are oriented diagonally across the panel - no photos yet.... but it
looks like this:

0 <- Knobs

0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 <- Jacks
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0

I still have the same problem with the pot spacing though...

I'm interested to see what Paul & John can work out.
