These are our large, beefy aluminum enclosures, which have been built tough enough to withstand a truck. This 2mm-thick, die-cast enclosure is rated IP54 against dust and splashing water. Because it's aluminum, it's easy to cut and drill so that you can add LCD screens, buttons and cable connections. If you want to "pretty up" your project, hit this with some fine-grit sand paper and buff it or just spray paint it!
These enclosures are perfect for producing "stomp box"-style effects pedals. Try combining this with a stomp switch and some of your own secret sauce circuitry to build a sweet custom pedal.
The lid mates nicely to the top of the enclosure and is secured with 9mm long #6-32 screws (included). This aluminum enclosure version features a smoother metal finish as well as a more structurally sound design.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

Decent quality, but two of the boxes I got had machine screws which were too small. Joelle in customer service was great about getting me the correct ones.
The finish is kind of rough and the boxes will need to be painted but they are about half the price of other boxes. They are a good deal for the money. I'm happy with my purchase.
The size was right. The price was surprisingly low. And when the unit was received, the fit & finish was found to be very, very good. All edges were clean and both pieces mated true.
This is a good solid enclosure. Easy to modify with a titanium drill bit or dremel tool. The walls are thick enough for tapping for 4-40 risers, but you will need to trim the excess that sticks out. I suggest mounting the pcb on the lid. I also used the body piece to mount other hardware. I bought 2 just-in-case, since they are inexpensive, but I was happy with my first attempt.
But the issue is the FedEX sure post shipping. Transit took around 10 days while the package went from small cities through out NC and SC- one city per day. Seemed to take forever. If shipped by regular USPS it would have been less than half the time.
