Thank you for this clue. I wasn't very familiar with casting alloys, but probably it's 4041 with a high silicon content as you say, and poor for anodizing.
I weighed one still in its shrinkwrap on my triple-beam scale, and it's 245 grams. I think the wrapping weight is negligible. This converts to 8.42 oz. or 0.54 lb. - basically what M-Short said. Hope this helps.
Do you have any idea what aluminum alloy is used in this box? I like to anodize and dye many of my projects, so I always use 6061 aluminum.
No public wish lists :(
