Really Useful box with pics

Hi All,

Hopefully this time I have managed to get the pics of my PI box right...

Made by cutting and drilling and cliping a 0.2 ltr really useful box..

Be very careful if you fancy doing the same, as a the plastic will cut nicely with a sharp craft knife, but it is easy to slip as the blade will binde on the cut and hence could easily slip with the odious risk !

However it is cheep, chearful, and with a bit of double sided velcro, will stick to the back of my monitor a treat...

I'm in the middle of much the same thing with a Plano 3448 6-compartment. $1.50 at Wal-Mart in the fishing section.

The Plano seems to be a more brittle plastic than you're describing, but a Dremel-type tool with a general purpose cutting blade cuts through it easily. Too easily, if you get a bit careless.

It looks to be a bit larger; the entire RPi will fit inside, including the SD card.
