I wonder if folks have found useful combos of off-the-shelf parts for "finishing" Arduino projects.
Specifically, it seems like a hard drive enclosure is a good starting point-- standoffs and and easily drillable/Dremelable front and back plates-- and I/O connectors are standard enough, but I keep looking for (and not finding) a lit LCD display with a few lit buttons
The closest things I've found are PC status panels that mount in spare drive bays like this:http://www.crystalfontz.com/product/CFA635-TFE-KU1
But, I just want the display+buttons PCB and mounting plate.
I want to focus on designing a circuit and UI, not finding a new case to perfectly fit every project.
Any suggestions of vendors or specific parts would be most appreciated!
