    Default Looking for a enclosure.

    Can anyone point me in the direction to someone who has a enclosure for a projector im trying to build? Ive gotten some pictures and prices for some from china but the shipping on them is a killer. Was quoted a price of 7 bucks a kg (2.2pounds) and that adds up on a 17kg package.


    Here are some pictures of the case I was thinking of ordering, the price for it is only 110 bucks, believe it comes with all the switches and stuff and the baseplate. The size of it is 75x55x35cm. I want to put red green and blue in it. So far I have a 300mw laserwave green, a casio blue (doesnt take much room) and I am still saving for the red.

    He also sent me a excel file off all the cases that he has and the price and weight of each but I cant figure out how to insert it in a post.

    So its listed at 110 bucks plus 119 for shipping. Do you think 230 bucks is worth it? I dont really have the tools or time to make my own and cant really find any on ebay or the web that do not cost like 500 bucks.

    Thumbs up

    I'd spend it one something like that; any chance you got pictures of the inside?

    No pictures of the inside yet, he just sent me the outside shots for some reason. I have e-mailed him back for inside pictures.

    It looks like it could be good.

    I ordered another case from this manufacturer a couple of days ago and got it today. Seems wellbuilt and solid i also ordered a case for it that it was delivered in that seems industrystandard solid for 40$.
    The case I ordered was a bit small because i didnt realize that the baseplate would be so small inside but I will make it work =)
    Ill post pictures tonight if anyones interested.

    @Aktopjian - Where on the web did you find this? It looks interesting I think. Specialy for that price. Any link?
