Tray boxes for Jeti DC
« on: February 04, 2022, 19:40:26 PM »
Alright, while browsing the interweb, found a webpage, where you can buy 3D printed tray boxes for the Jeti DC! My prayers were answered as I was always wondering why oh why the tray did not have that!!
I loved all my other trays, from the Graupner MC, to the MPX Spacebox as it is always handy to have that roll of blenderm, the small screwdriver or that switch magnet always with the radio, not in the radio suit case!

Anyway, I had to have it! Cost was 25 €  (seems to be 28 now) . Ordered it last week, and received this afternoon, and within 5 minutes, it was all put in and ready!


I bought it here: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/werkzeugfaecher-fuer-jeti-originalsenderpult/1938164018-249-7355

I believe if you look hard enough, you might find the 3D files, or similar, but frankly, for the price, worth it to be honest.

Contact with the seller (Joe) was swift and easy. The package arrived quick, and was indestructible! So, what do you get?

3 Tool boxes, one for each sides, and one, for the back, which I think is a nice plus! Printing quality is spot on, and the boxes feels light, but solid! No manual etc, but who needs it! I only scratched my head for a minute for the back piece, as there is a tube, in the tube , and until I saw the additional sleeve was sliced so it can be opened to be inserted around the bracket, it was not making sense as to where I had to install it :)

Photos are worth a thousand words, but in a nutshell:

Unscrew the tray plate (did the bottom one), only one side.
Insert the tool boxes on the sides. Everything fits smoothly, tight, but not too tight, and all measurement are spot on! Everything is as flush as it can be

For the "back" box, as I said, the extra piece is a sleeve that goes first in the "post" or whatever you call that, then slide the tray itself. That needed a bit of force, but everything fits, and the tray closes nicely with a spring like system. The side boxes clips when closed.

And that is pretty much it, screw back the plate without forgetting to insert the radio before tightening everything, et voila, done!

Bam! Tool box in my Jeti tray!

And I love it! Something that I really missed from my other radios now available again to me. Time to fill them up :)
