New doghouse box for ST-15??
« on: March 12, 2013, 08:22:22 PM »
I want a better doghouse box on my ST-15. I've reinforced mine, but it's a bit too small.

I'd like one with an easy-open top. Made out of substantial material. I could make one myself, but it seems that I should be able to purchase one that works well enough.

Thoughts?

We often use a Home-Depot electrical aisle variety of grey plastic electrical box. The are heavy, stand up to vibration very well, have easily removeable water-tight lids, come in many sizes, easily mounted and are easily customized with various types of openings.
