Tried eBay, but was hoping to locate a online retailer for various sizes of electronic enclosures... Looking for large sizes of about 8" x 8" x 2" or 10 x 10" x 2", etc.... Anyone now of a good supplier of these?


I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


Honestly there are limited options that are also reasonable price. There are huge enclosures for desktop equipment that range around 100 dollars but it is simply not worth it. I have noticed it is however economical to buy old equipment , remove the insides in a few minutes and have a ideal project box. Target items for smaller enclosures are cable and dsl modems, wifi or wired routers ect. A larger enclosure in the 10 to 14 inch range are typically things like a old xbox, ps2, old cable box from time Warner or comcast, tivo, old satellite receivers from companies like dish or direct tv.

#3 has a selection of desktop sized cases and rack mount sized ones too. I'm looking for some more options.


You can Try Mouser. You have to wade thru the listing. They have lots of listings.


Thanks guys, I'll check it out...


I have two of these comcast boxes that gutted easily with a t series screw driver. T6 i think. The are vented and the comcast logo is a easy fix. Plus they come with a external 4 amp 5 volt power brick
