Brilliant! How did I not think of that.

I have no idea what you just said, but looks impressive.

I'm sure most of you have seen Kal's design... I built the 50 Amp Back to Back panel. Waterjet cut the panel door openings. Spent about two weeks in the evenings after work wiring it all up... one circuit at a time! Built in a 16x20 enclosure.

That is amazing.
I was thinking about wrapping my panel with a vinyl but pain is great!

I think my next panel will look very steampunk. Have analog meters to measure power output and temp with a bcs brain. I have a single project I keep thinking about that it might work perfect for.

WOW this looks exactly like what I want to build. Are there plans and part list anywhere? I tried to search Aubers site for a description of this build but didn't find anything.

Is there anyone out there that has used a large microwaveable Tupperware container as an enclosure? I've got those lying around and could shave $40 on my build costs with it. My thought is it could handle the heat seeing as it's microwaveable and holds food being heated to temps quite high.

Let me know your thoughts.

BTW, these builds are pretty amazing!

I wouldn't use Tupperware. It's not as rigid, melts easier, etc.
