Ammo Box from Princess Auto. $6.99









Still have to add some vent holes and I'm trying to decide on a way to add a place to plug in the extension cord.

I want some sort of plug, not a cord sticking out.

Pretty slick! There's been quite a few Ammo Box DIY's around here. I love it!

If anyone else does this I suggest getting longer screws. Probably the same thing for the toolbox version. They grab but it's a bit of a pain getting them threaded.

Any electricians able to tell me what my best (and cheapest) option is for a outlet (inlet)? I don't want a cord hanging out and I don't really like the idea of a x-cord with 2 male ends.

I would like to be able to plug the female end of an x-cord directly into the box.

You should be able to go to a hardware store and find a replacement male end 3-prong connector. This connector will have three areas in which to screw in a wire and you can just mount it flush with your ammo box, or have it hang off as a nub a bit. I have used these when testing motors that I find. It is something like this

Or you could steal an inset male plug off an old computer power supply...
I think radioshack also sells these for fairly cheap.

Jmilton1987: That link isn't working.

leboeuf and Ice9: I didn't think of that. I could use a computer power wire as an in between to the x-cord. That way I could just stick it in the box when I'm done. I'll look into this.

rabeb25: What is it you are referring too?
