Electrics boxes?

Post by Prof » Wed Jun 06, 2007 10:36 pm

Here are some water proof aluminium boxes I came across in Dick Smith's the other day. Could come in handy for putting in your smaller electrics. Alloy would polish up quite well...

The largest is 171mm x 121mm 55mm. The smallest is 115mm x 65mm x40mm

They also had some grey poly boxes the lagets being 220mm x 150mm x 55mm

G'day Browder,
You can find the Jacar products here...

http://www.jaycar.com.au

On the left under Browse Products, select 'Enclosures', then choose a sub category (try Aluminium to start with).

You should be able to find similar products in the US. Try an electronics supplier or search for enclosures.

G'day Browder. If you can't find one over there at electronics shops, I'll pick one up for you and send it over.

Electrics boxes in use...

Email from 74 chopper...

Here are some pix of the tandy boxes you posted on the site the other day, I got them from jaycar,

Image

Case has ignition switch/headlight switch/tail light switch so I can have lights off when kick starting. At the back of it you can see 2 fuse holders. These are for the light fuses.

I have an inline "wedge" fuse holder inside the box screwed to the roof of it so the wiring comes out of the box when I take the lid off.

On the outside top of the lid is the solid state reg/rectifier in the wind to keep it cool.

The hole thing, box/switches/wiring/fuse holders and fuses cost around $70... looks better than my santee boxes, and is a hell of a lot more watertight.

Cheers, Rob...
