Default Cheap Enclosure boxes

Hi everyone,

I just found these cheap non metallic enclosure boxes online. I have used this vendor before for some electronic equipment and wires. Now they are offering these enclosures for CHEAP!

http://deepsurplus.com/Network-Struc...nclosure-Boxes

I'm not ready for one yet, but I'm sure others can benefit from this.

-Adam

You have a broken link.

I used a plastic 12"x12"x6" electric enclosure. You can buy them at home depot, lowes, and various online suppliers for around $50.

I go to electronic surplus and scrap yards, there are tons of them really cheap.

Not bad pricing, 12x12x4 for under $20. Don't know if 4" is deep enough though, depending on the controllers used.

For some reason, it keeps redirecting me to http://members.cj.com/404?ref=cj

when I click on it. When I copy and paste its fine.

According to auberins.com, their controllers are 3" deep.

I don't have any experience with those boxes, but Deep Surplus is a pretty awesome company. I bought all my network wiring, patch panels, speaker cable, keystone plates, etc. from them when I finished my basement. And they always give you a pack of Skittles with every order.

I would have got that one if I knew about this mid last summer.
Thanks for the info.
