That's the exact dimensions I have been using (well, not 19" though, more like 13" or something. I forgot. hehe.)

The power section is still in a bit of flux right now, as the inductance issues get sorted out. I'm so thankful for your help!

To the curious: 6 ounce copper implies AT LEAST 900 amp controller possible.

By the way, there have now been 10 donations since yesterday! I love setbacks! This next version is going to be much better!
