As explained in my first post, I actually went to the closest hardware store to get that one.
In fact, I just got nother 2 Rapis and went back to the same stire to buy another 2 identical boxes. I then realized that I had missed boxes of screws which were even less exepnsive than the first box I purchased. They were at 1.99€, sold in the same plastic box.
The only problem I had when I reached home was to get rid of the glue that was used to stick the label on the boxes... By the size is absolutely perfect.
I wonder if it would be possible to build some kind of punch that could be used to cut the holes on the sides at once, rather than use a cuter as I did. It must then be possible to get in touch with the company that manufactures these plastic boxes and to purchase some directly. The cost should not be more than a few cents per box. And they are really ideal for the raspi.
I am now trying to find a box that would be much bigger, which could hold both the raspi, a usb hub and would make it possible to line up all connectors on one side. That would probably be much "cleaner" for a teaching environment, and it would eliminate potential problems with cables going all around the Raspi. Actually, in a teaching environment, nobody cares about the size, and a box about the size of a paperback book, protecting all fragile components, would be much more appropriate...
So, I am currently looking for such an alternative.
