Anybody know a good source for NICE metal enclosures - either Aluminum or stainless steel with a nice finish, suitible for display purposes? Don't tell me to check out Mouser or Digikey, I already have...... :p

As you probably have seen from the catalogs you mentioned, BUDD is a popular Brand. Hammond amkes stuff too but mostly industrial.<p>Whenever I am not sure of the best vendor, I turn to a buying guide like <p>www.thomasregional.com
or
www.electronicssourcebook.com<p>for lists of manufacturers segregated by product.<p>Just like a search engine, try serach terms like "enclosure" or "cabenet"<p>You will have to register but it is free

Thanks for the input. I had already contacted Zero for some information, wasn't sure how much they were going to charge for their stuff, particularly for only a couple units.
