  • When I built my Nixie clock, I searched architectural salvage as well as some of the places you mentioned. There were a ton of great potential enclosures there. I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for though and went a different route I’m somewhat surprised you didn’t mention: I built it!

    The main construction was oak panels from the local hardware store. I wanted a metal grating for the window and had to search far and wide for scrap (talked to metal workers in the area, visited the scrap yard…) and ended up with a vent from a piece of exercise equipment.

    It’s a whole lot more work this way, but the end result can be perfectly suited and truly unique.

  • I can’t recommend this. I tried it and the encoder broke under the pressure. If you have your heart set on the 10001 knob, you’ll want to drill out the knob a bit more and use some glue.

    Update: I drilled my 10001 knob out at 15/64ths inch, and now it press-fits great on the shaft of the (replacement) encoder. I probably won’t even glue it.

  • Yep; I’ve got the same issue. Even the usual line breaks are gone now.

  • With a bit of filing, this fits nicely in the area reserved for the ethernet port in the PRT-10088 Arduino Project Enclosure.

No public wish lists :(
