    BTW, we should have a enclosure build section... There are tons of parts, hacks, tips and tricks that could be shared.

    I've just been using the larger version that lets the ethernet cable pass through (the one on the right), due to a dramatic cost difference. My latest case will have the need for 13 of these.

    I am bringing my latest case to the meeting to show the cheap version. Eric and Matt have been showing theirs at the last couple TASL meetings. They also went cheap with the cable passthru version. If anyone has the ethernet version, please bring them to the meeting.
    Thanks,

    I would love to have these but my wallet said no last year. The pass through worked fine this year. The worst part is it was slow to take apart after the year because the way I did it the little rubber grommet that clamps on the wire ends up smaller than a rj45 plug. So you have to restretch the rubber to get them out. But worked great otherwise and water was never a problem.

    Mike Purser has offered to bring a controller box with these. I am asking people to bring their controller box examples. Mine is about the same as yours, but always good to show the variations.
