    Default Tip on great custom enclosure Accessories

    Hello ppl!

    Perhaps some of you allready know this page but i just found it and it will save me alot of cash and defenatly som time as i was planing on doin some welding this upcoming weekend for my steel structure.

    but this is really great and will make the enclosure look more pro and easy as "Lego"

    Take care all.

    Peace

    That looks WAY too easy to use -
    it's much more entertaining to construct something with improper power tools and over-priced pieces of metal from the local home improvement center...

    That would be some GREAT stuff to demo at a SELEM or FLEM if anyone has any they could bring!

    You got that right - it was pretty much full throttle the whole event!
    It would cost big bucks to have that much fun at most weekend events!!

    Oh *SNAP*!!!!!!!

    I just had a flashback to SELEM 2007 with Hayden holding his laptop out so we could all watch the Delta Ebonics commercial. Damn... Now everyone in the office is wondering why I burst out laughing for no reason at all!

    For those of you that have no idea what I'm talking about - here's the link to the original flash animation that started it all. It's a little crude, but still funny as hell.
