DIY - McIntosh MC152 Glass
The outline of this DIY
Process for the renewal of the screen-printed glass of the front face a McIntosh Mc 152 amplifier. Creating a polycarbonate facade transparent and silkscreen made on a transparent A3 format film of 297 X 420 mm, with the help of an A3 printer. Under the transparent film is placed a leaf of RHODOID of green and transparent color.
- A3 inkjet printer
- Transparent polycarbonate
- A3 Transparent Film for Inkjet Printer
- RHODOID green leaf (green screen print)
- Dusting bomb, cutter, chisel
- RHODOID sheet of white color (white silkscreen)
The white color remains transparent to the printing, it is which allows with a green rhodoid leaf placed underneath to achieve a green backlight. For a white backlight, we place a white rhodoid film, for some inscriptions. A polycarbonate sheet is cut with the cutter, pass at least 3 times the cutter, on your cut line. Place the pvc sheet at the end of a table and pressing hard and with a sharp blow, it must cut without burrs.
A dust bomb is very useful, even better than a cloth, when you place the polycarbonate sheet on the screen-printed sheet, watch out for dust! If you have despite precautions, there is a scratch on the polycarbonate sheet, you can eliminate it with a polish car. Be careful, when printing the transparent film, provide borderless printing (420 mm), and adjust the image size in (mm) in your photo software. Screen printing download in .JPG format. Beware the color of the rhodoid shown is brighter than it should. Its color is a dark green.

Provide a small band in black paint on the back polycarbonate (+20 mm) to bridge the difference between the length of the polycarbonate plate and that of the transparent film silkscreened, this one does at best only 420 mm.
