    Default Enclosures for projects

    Guys and idea where you buy enclosures for boxing up your electronics . Would prefer plastic rectangular boxes which can be easily cut and made holes into. Mainly for enclosing USB gadgets which i build.

    I can import from a lot of US enclosure companies but then for small projects it does not make senses due to cost and shipping.

    Ever considered building enclosures out of slotted sheets and angles (meccano parts)?

    Hi Vikas,
    I recently purchased plastic enclosures from LMR. The size was similar to that of laptop PSU or little bigger they are good for USB application as I was planning to use them for similar purpose. They were cheap about 15 Rs each though plastic was not very good but for some more money about 20 Rs one could buy good enclosures shop number will be mailed to you once I search the list of visting card I have.

    Vikas,

    These guys have a stock of enclosures that they import from China (the Chinese source seems same as Deo Comtech of Mumbai that Ulhas mentioned). They have desktop, wall-mounted, hand-held enclosures. Give these guys a look-in next time you are around the LRM area...

    If you are anywhere near Malkaganj, check out one of the shops selling scientific plasticware there. Ask for slide boxes to hold 25 slides, make: Laboplast or Polylab. You could also check out boxes for 50 and 100 slides. I'm sure you'll find some use for these. They are made from good plastic and are reasonably priced. To get an idea:

    thx guys , will visit LRM sometime to check.

    @Nivedita - welcome back. Any other colors available ? Red is a little too RED. Grey,black and white would be good. Any how ill keep in mind that ur selling them, makes you the only online shop right now.

    If you had pointed out 3 weeks back would have bought about 10 USB ones ... had to order from mouser.
