I have made a few prototypes of some arduino cases and was wondering if there was any interest in them.

let me know your thoughts and email me at diyourfaceoff@gmail.com if you're interested


I have no need for one but they do look good. I like the ali version, with a lid held by inset cheese-head set screws it would look the business. And the wooden version is nice and retro.

Must be an Aussie thing. What IS a cheese-head set screw?

I was also curious about that, all I could imagine was  a screw where the head looks like a wheel of cheese


google says it is this

Best regards
Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.

You're right I think Jantje, actually I was thinking of these

Called I think a cap screw or socket screw.

Pretty! Walnut makes anything look better!



Its one of my favorite types of wood to make things out of, Made quite a bit of furniture out of it too.
Here are a few other walnut Items i've made.




I have made similar cases for some projects in the past (wooden).  Instead of using screws, you should consider using the very small rare earth magnets to hold the lid in place.  They work very well, and as long as they don't interfere with the sensors your using, they can offer a cleaner look to the case.

In our class (that I have to take every single year) shows a chart of common materials in a manufacturing environment. Some are VERY capable of generating ESD, while others are not. The chart showed that if you took 2 pieces of styrofoam, rubbed them together, instant ESD. 2 pieces of wool, instant ESD. 2 pieces of glass, nothing, 2 pieces of wood, very little, if any at all.



Got some trays for sale if anyone is interested


Hey stevovee, still got any of these for sale?


Well, well, look whose back. Been a while, eh?
