Though the guts of your project may be patentably new, the problem of putting a box around it is probably not. Shown here, a trio of high voltage control panels, of solid slate, from the switchboard of the Sault Ste. Marie canal power house, manufactured 1895. Slate is an insulator, and naturally forms big flat sheets perfect for control panels.

  1. Love that brass enclosure.

  2. I’ve done a couple of enclosures I’m proud of. First was my wooden logic probe (http://www.galacticstudios.org/wooden-super-probe/) and second was my Windows PC inside a miniature case resembling and Altair 8800 (http://www.galacticstudios.org/mini-altair-8800-pc/)

  3. Nice! We just made an enclosure from a drum module enclosure out of an NES Advantage controller…. http://weareaudiobody.com/this-is-not-what-you-think-it-is
