Default Distro box

I went to my local Home Depot to pick up the pvc box that everyone is using, and the guy there said it had been discontinued, and can no longer be purchased. Just thought I would let you guys know before you make the trip. I built one using a project box from Radio Shack, and it works great.

we just picked up a CDC and we are in need of a powersupply.

just wondering if anyone had any recomendations on a powersupply rated at around 15A (if its from US/HK will it still work in the UK?)

it'll only short if something metal touches the positive and negative side at the same time.

im using banana plugs so there's no possibility of that happening unless i touch both terminals with the plug. then thats just user error

Ok here is a pic of it. It cost me about 15.00 and 30min of my time to make it. I used LRP super flex 12ga wire and put a Deans on the end of it.

I am building another one right now using insulated binding posts, and banana jacks on the side to hook up power. I have a guy at the track that wants one with switches and lights etc.

That will work, but a tail light bulb works best. If you use a voltmeter on the 12 volt leg while using the fan the voltage is less than say if you use the bulb or good sized LED. Plus if you use a taillight bulb you can put the 5 volt on the side that lights up bright, and the 3.3 volt on the other side. Personally I prefer to make them out of the older style supplies as it's much easier, you just don't get the 3.3 volt leg.

From HK - should be OK but double check input volts.
definitely 110v from US compared to 230v Eu.

Check the 20a PS from Much More - I've been using one for a while now and they are pretty good.
