« on: January 29, 2011, 06:05:22 pm »

I got tired of worrying about spilled drinks on my mixer, so I built a plexiglas cover

Looks like a perfect place to set drinks!

Yeah it kinds says "Place drink here" Laughing

However-if it was at an angle so the drink would slide-or almost slide off-then they wouldn't put them there.

...or people would constantly be spilling drinks off of the slanted console cover and he would be standing in a puddle of spilled drinks all night.

I think the slant would be tipped away from the front of the mixer. The drinks should spill on the patron's feet.

Right, but after a night full of spilled drinks on the back side of the mixer, the puddle is going to spread to the front side of the mixer. Wink

that thought crossed my mind. I could put more of a slope on it, but then I wouldn't be able to access the faders without lifting the lid.

I bet a machete would be less expensive (at least in the short term).

I like your homemade case!!

Build the top of your mixer cover like the roof of a house and then no one can set anything there at all Smile
