Fire Extinguisher Cabinet for Control Panel
1 Attachment(s)

I am slowly working to get all the parts I will need for a control panel that will replace my ammo box pwm.

Planning on going from a cooler MLT and e-keggle to a 4 keggle system (HLT/Herms, MLT, BK1, BK2). I am still deciding between PIDs and a BCS, how many elements to run simultaneously, etc.....but figured that it would be nice to have a box too big rather than too small.

While looking for a Hoffman box, I came across this Fire Extinguisher Cabinet on Craigslist and picked it up. The interior is 24" tall, 10.5" wide and 6" deep. I know it is not waterproof, but I don't think it is going to get more than an occasional splash. Anybody see a problem with using this as an enclosure? I don't know what gauge it is, but it is pretty solid. Is there a disadvantage to just mounting the components to the back, without using a separate interior back panel?
