    Hi all,

    Maplin no longer do me fav case, which is annoying, but it was a metal case,
    top was a nice blue colour with vents, paint was like rough and almost
    indestructable, anyway, does anyone know who made these cases ? Maplin said
    EMS supplied them, though cant find any ref. to EMS with respect to
    encolsures, any one any ideas ? or know any good sites for metal encolsures
    ?

    TIA,
    Chris

    I think I know the range you mean, all steel 2-piece, rough blue top, smooth
    cream base & panels. I've had one for years, and as you say the paint lasts.
    ;-)

    Rapid Electronics do a few "The top is made from 1mm thick steel with black
    epoxy finish and the bottom, including front and rear panels, from 1.5mm
    thick natural anodised aluminium. The two halves snap fit together but four
    self tapping screws are also provided for additional security.",

    Farnell do some but £20 minimum order, RS also do plenty, no minimum order.

    Yeah, I did spot those in Rapid, they are too small though :( I will check
    out RS, I've gotta order some stuff from RS anyways soon...... would have
    been nice to track down the maplin supplier though........
