"apple polisher" - sorry, dude, but that word (found with http://dict.leo.org)
was so funny I just had to use it :o) It was late at night also.

Get a student apprentice for this kind of work. Be prepared to be asked 
like this if you sell boards without cases. On the other hand, if you sell 
board with cases,
it's likely that dimension drawings already exists. They could be included 
in the pdf manual...

Well done!! Sounds kind of fun.

BTW: I think that Soren did (and is doing) a GREAT job with his boards. It 
was him making it
possible for me to replace my 486er-based gateway big-tower with a 
book.size net4501. I wish
I'd have a digital camera to show you photos of 'before' and 'after'....
I hope he will sell LOTS of his gears and eventually becomes a millionaire.
