    Can anyone recommend a good place to get cheap enclosures in Europe?

    Foe electronics. I ended up getting a PC case which will work but not really what I wanted. It would still be nice to find a place that sells reasonably priced sheet metal boxes. For most electronics suppliers a biggish enclosure (500mm x 500mm x 150mm) seems to run in the $200-300 range...

    Somewhere here on the forum is a nice little box made with 20x80 V-slot sidewalls and sheet metal top, bottom and ends but for the life of me I can't seem to locate it. It was over a year ago and 15,000 posts later it seems to have slipped into obscurity. Very economical and easy to build though. Anyone remember where it is?

    Not the same one but the same idea. It's what I was hoping to get across.
