This Collins 516F-2 Power supply cabinet, is a beautiful Reproduction cabinet with an Aluminum Trim Ring, and Winged emblem Grill.
You will be hard pressed to tell this is a reproduction as it looks just like the original Collins 516F-2 cabinet.
We had this product made by a USA company in the aero space industry, that manufactures parts for the aircraft industry. A state of the art computerized Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) was used to configure the cabinet so that the construction of this cabinet will look and fit just like the original.
This cabinet is made with Aluminum like the originals, but is made with 6061 T6 aluminum, which is not as soft as the original Collins cabinets which will bend, dent and distort very easy if you are not careful.
This reproduction will not bend as easy as the originals as it is much stronger. The Paint we used on this reproduction, is baked on enamel paint on both the cabinet and the Aluminum trim ring.
It is matched to the original Collins paint formula, with the same finish so it will match your Collins S-Line gear.
The aero space Company that does the paint on this item as well as all painted S-Line items we sell, is one of the companies that paint aluminum aircraft so they know how to properly prepare the surface, and paint Aluminum products!
This cabinet is complete with Trim Ring, Grill, Backing Plate, Emblem, Aluminum spun risers, and the original Collins feet that were used on the S-Line.
The Backing Plate is just like the original anodized backing plates that Collins used on only the Late serial number Round Emblem and Rockwell Collins S-Line 516F-2 Power Supply cabinets.
The Risers are made with aluminum to factory specifications including the 3 degree Cant on the bottom so your feet will sit flat on the desk. They are powder coat finished satin black and look just like the original riser finish.
The reproduction emblem is made under license from Collins and looks very close to the original.The Rubber feet are purchased from the same company that sold them to Collins and even have the same part number!
This is a very high quality reproduction and was very expensive to make. We wanted to make then with the highest quality possible and still keep the price reasonable.
As with all my products, it comes with a satisfaction money back guarantee if you are not happy with it.
