Guess this would be in the right section ?

For those of us that kinda find it hard to figure out what to use , how about some of you taht have knack for this , show off some of your enclosures you use for your hardware(s) . like Ren's , Grinch , Olsen , etc , etc , etc .
I know we have seen ones for the SSR's , but not a lot for the other hardware .
So , if you've got 'em ... how about flaunting 'em ( so to speak )
lets see what you came up with for enclosures ...

I've got a few of mine on my site - they are nothing special - just the YBS enclosures...

I also use the ones that are shown on Kevin's site, and they work great. They are from YourBroadbandStore.com, and they have several sizes that will accomodate just about any of the controllers we commonly use. The prices are good also.

I use the same as Kevin with the heatsinks (when they come in ;) ) the 9x9x3 enclosure.

I am also using an enclosure that will have one extension cord coming in made from 10AWG that will feed my Mega tree for power and will have sockets on it for each individual controller.

Here are my enclosures for two REN16s that I made last year. I made brackets to attach these under the eves of my house. It's just a piece of a 4"x4" PVC fence post with caps on each end.

Here ya go. My second Ren24.

1808 1809 1810

I skipped the heat sink buy and went with 1-1/4" right angle aluminum for the heatsink / mounting bracket. I think I had seen somebody using the wirenuts as standoffs before, so I tried to emulate that. I used superglue the first go 'round, but it did not hold well. Plan B was 2 part clear epoxy. That held. The point was to not put any holes in the back of the case to try and maintain the weather resistance. The boards and the 1-1/4" don't quite line up with any of the existing standoffs. Also I wanted more height so I could run the wires underneath to the connectors at the back.

If you look at the last picture, I ended up hiding them in a cupboard anyway:(

That is how I will be doing my Ren16's, now I need to work out how to jazz them up.lol

No pics right now...but the plastic school supply boxes fit my Ren64's nicely. :)

(Although, the XC revision is a bit bigger than my current XB's... I'll have to see when I put my new one together in the coming weeks...)

Is that 2nd photo a rubbermaid type container? Do you put a lid on it, or turn it over?

It gets a lid.

I am pretty sure its from here.

This is what I am, and most other, DIYC'ers seem to be using. They are nice, and waterproof.

And this enclosure for the Ren-24's or smaller boards.

This is my little beast. The craftsmanship is no where near the calibur of half the people in this community but it works for me. ;)

Are using the onboard neutral and a bar?

Pretty cool putting 2 in one like that, by the way!

The reason I went with the neutral bar was because I didn't have the double stacked terminal and rather then waiting for more parts to come in from Mouser I went the bar route. That board is also the board that I had to bridge some traces I burnt (Green wire) out because of wrong positioning of jumpers on the 120V pins.

That looks AWESOME Vziukas! I especially like the audio terminals and toggle switch on the side there. Really clean!!
