    'project box' wanted

    I'm trying to find a small plastic type box to build a circuit into.

    Easy, well yes and no, while I can find them, the cost of them is silly, so I am looking into alternatives.

    I can get some 1'' high 3''*2'' boxes which are fine, but cost like 5ukp/$10 by the time I have paid shipping.

    Since I need 10, thats 50/$100.


    So, any ideas what I can use as a replacement, a cigarette sixed box would be fine, but I dont want it to be stiff paper/card etc, plastics or metals only.

    so if anyone can think of what I can buy that comes in a box, so I can just keep the box.............

    Think you need to look harder (mouser,digikey,etc), even Radioshack, not know for good pricing as 3x2x1 project boxes for $2.29 USD

    Yeah I have since the post found them a little cheaper, but I'm off to search Asda(poor walmart offspring) as maybe I can find something that comes in a box that I can still use the contents off, to ofset the cost.
