Building a power supply for an Exposure VII pre-amp
This rather long page shows the completed unit:

The business end, literally hanging around... The wiring incorporates extra loops or bends so as not to overtly impede free movement of the regulator 'plate'. Luckily, they seem to provide just about the right amount of damping such that oscillation time is roughly five seconds, as can be seen in this movie clip [Wmv file, 3.5Mb]

In the foreground are two DIY corner blocks (used in cabinets, shelving, etc) these act as 'transit' locks. To lock the suspended plate down, they are swivelled underneath and screwed-down to the blocks.
