Default Diecast Boxes

I recently needed an aluminium diecast box, and 'out of the hat' picked on-line seller 'breconjess', who has nine sizes listed.

The box arrived extremely quickly, and I am very impressed with the quality - lovely flat smooth surfaces all round. They are advertised as 'Made in Britain' and even have the Eddystone lighthouse mark inside the lid!

The seller is Rich Electronics in Caerphilly, with lots of other components for sale.

Very impressed!

Eddystone (diecast boxes) and associated tooling was taken over by Hammond in Canada, they definitely produce them with the Eddystone lighthouse symbol still! Can't comment on the Made in Britain bit though - I don't have one handy to check.
