Aluminium enclosure
« on: March 19, 2017, 11:19:20 AM »
Hi all...

I am looking for aluminum enclosures for test building different stuff. I am thinking of a box that could be fully enclosed to which I can attach a front panel.

It is mainly a manufacturer that I am looking for... like Hammond or likewise.


Best regards

BUD makes aluminum boxes, should be available digikey, mouser, etc.

You can also buy blank guitar chassis. Places like watts tube audio  and mojotone sell them

Thank you sir.

Yes, I have been thinking about blank guitar chassis but haven't found anything useful really... yet ;)

I will investigate the mentioned suppliers.

@L´Andratté

Thanks again... great site for many reasons.

Lots of stuff I normally use and some more... and cheaper than other sites I usually visit including Mouser.

I was going to say Bud or Hammond.  Of course, you can get stuff made, but buying off the shelf (esp if youre looking at small numbers) will be cheaper.

Allied has bud boxes in that size. Iirc you have to buy the top lid seperately but its not that expensive all in.

If there's a harder way to do this, I haven't found it yet.
