Default Good Case for simple chip-amps

I posted a link to a promising case now available in the US, I have one now and here are the details.

It isn't quite what I thought, but it is a decent case, especially forr $22 US (including shipping). This one's black, smooth finish inside & uniformly rough (sandblasted) finish outside.

The case has ribs inside, on the top & bottom surfaces. The case is 2 mm thick and the ribs are 1.5 to 2 mm tall.

The minimum inside dimensions are: 61.5 mm tall (between the ribs), 133 mm wide (at the center joint), the usable width of the top and bottom surfaces 127 mm, and 200 mm long.

If it looks a little "pinched-in" at the side joints, that's because it is, by about 2 mm.

Can you post a link to the sellers page, so we can check if he has more for sale?

The direct link goes to "This listing (250323035406) has been removed, or this item is not available."
left lane is for passing, slower traffic keep right please.

I found these cases later.

8.5" L x 6.15" W x 3.096" H Split Body Aluminum Enclosure

They are well built, a better size, flat on the inside, and still not-expensive at about $36. Context Engineering makes them and has other 1U & 2U sizes also.

Otherwise, just keep looking on ebay

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Good luck with your project!

I got the same case from eBay My World - fan_computer . It arrived pretty fast and is quite well made. Not being flat inside can make it tricky, but at any rate - a chipamp will fit, no problem.
