    industrial ballast


    I have two industrial ballast that need a home... So I'm wondering what is the best box I can made for them. In wood or metal. And is there already some box that I can buy.

    Thank you,
    Martin Langlois

    yup.. definitly steel.
    look for a heavy gauges steel container with preferably holes that you could punch out to bring your wires in and out.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
