Thanks for the last two, somewhat constructive posts.
ensure to be extra careful if I end up removing the velcro pads, and hadn't considered what you mention about the resistors but I don't think
the pads are sticky enough to tear resistors off, i'm grateful for you pointing out the fact though
I had it in a cardboard case I made myself but I like this one as it has some weight to it, it sits where I want it to, rather than where the cables dictated as it did when bare due to being so light....
Agreed about the mounting holes.
I suppose if I really wanted to do something I could create two 'clips' that would stick (or screw) into the wood and hold the board down in place in a similar fashion to what you describe in an enclosed case, but for now i'm happy with it.
