2022-10-19 (W) BackPackPower New project

In my never-ending quest for power, I realized I'd like to take some hefty batteries on the go. I'd like to have familiar sources, like USB ports, a car plug, an adjustable supply, and a small 120VAC inverter. I also added a 12→24VDC converter for my skates. The unit will fit in a backpack, and I'll access the controls by unzipping one side. The top and bottom will be hardboard, and I'll make standoffs from bolts and couplers. I wanted to use nylon hardware, but I couldn't find it at a reasonable price.

I arranged the parts to understand the size and cut a couple of pieces of hardboard. The top and bottom only need a few holes to align, so I drilled those with the boards held on top of one another. The component mounting holes only go in the bottom, so I worked on them next. After too many years, I ordered a metric drill bit index so my cuts were accurate.
