i'll have to measure it when i get home, but either 7x5x3 or 8x6x3. depending on where you mount the controller, it's a tight fit between the back of the box and the wiring.

I just picked one of these up too... sounds like a great deal compared to the 2-stage ranco I was about to buy later this month. Plus, I always like building stuff like this

Yeah will get some uploaded this evening. I drew it out on paper, ended up being wayyyy bigger then my drawing. I was kinda pissed at myself. Then instantly started thinking, I should make it two feet taller, then it will be walk in. Woohoo. That may end up happening. I didn't tell my wife I ordered a controller for it, so I keep building onto it. Put panels on the inside, putting up shelves tonight on the inside, just so she doesn't ask me why the beer is still in the house. :P

Almost three weeks here. Figured I'd email the seller this evening to see what's what.

I ordered mine on the 19th of last month and they just got here today. I emailed him and he sent a tracking number that just said it was sent.

Mine was shipped on the 20th. I just sent an email to him this morning. Hope to hear back soon. How was it shipped, USPS?

Finally got mine in yesterday. Was excited. Got the control panel done, wired it up like it shows it shows it should be wired up, and will be wiring it up properly today using the wiring diagram in this thread. :P Pictures tonight, wife stole my camera.
