Description: These beefy aluminum enclosures may look rough, but they’re built tough. 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 were originally sold for the production of “stomp box” style effects pedals. Try combining this with our stomp switches (in the related items below) 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 M4 screws (included).

What is not to like? This box takes a beating but can be cut and drilled with ease. There are so many ABS boxes out there that are much more expensive and of course weaker. Unless you are worried about RF propagation or have some aversion to metal then this is a great enclosure at a killer price. I have not seen a better deal anywhere including DigiKey, Mouser, Adafruit or Amazon.
This is a nice looking brushed aluminum enclosure. It feels solid, doesn’t flex and is easily machined. I drilled six holes in it with a hole saw and jammed some cheap arcade buttons in there. Now I use it to send keyboard shortcuts to autocad. Pretty nice little box, I’m glad to be able to add it to my arsenal of nice little boxes to jam buttons into.
