    I have 5 wires need to join together in some kind of plastic case that is pleasing to the eye. Like an eggshell design. Something i can drill holes jn but just snaps or screws together. I have been searching in vain for like 3 days off and on.... the wires are belden 22 guage just voltages like 12vd ...will carry like 3amps max... i would be willing to use something with connectors already built in ...but not required.

    No, nothing like a plug at all. These things i have in mind are plastic and ard two pieces like a shell. You solder the wires inside the shell and close it up. Sometimes you might use it to put a small board or discrete component inside. I just do not know what to search for! :(
