Well I was going to say I'll give you 10 + whatever the postage is, but I've just looked on ebay and electrical cabinets seem to go for 100+ so I dunno lol

400 x 300 x 150 45 each brand new.

Are you referring to following ones, which are 45+VAT, or do you know of a place to get them for 45 including VAT?

Most electrical wholesalers will do that sort of size for around 40 - 50 new. I've bought enclosures for a couple of quid from the scrapyard in the past but it's very hit and miss as to whether or not they have machinery/bankruptcy stock/etc.

I would be intrested if the price was right.

I am also very interested depending on price.

due to the amount of interest, both on here and on pms Id better specify a price. ive had numerous offers of 20 quid. so I think thats fair? ideally I dont want to faff about posting however I will if necessary they weigh 4.5kg probably due to the maHOOsive pilon switch inside them! plus id have to find a box so they didn't end up all scratched etc

so 20 is the price, first come first serve. that way im keeping everybody happy whilst ensuring they are not sat here for months on end.

Well that counts me out as I am all the way down on the Isle Of Wight. :thumbdown:, lol

I'm the best part of 100 miles north of you. Counts me out if you dont want to post......be good if you did though:thumsup:

I'll have them and collect.

BTW wasn't being clever over posting the other boxes, just pointing out what new costs. If you only deal with the likes of RS etc you get skewed ideas of cost

I contemplated buying these today but thought I'd give someone new a chance as I've still not used the ones I got on eBay months ago.

Don't you get the VAT back Jonathan ?

Would be nice if I could...

Hi John S, did you have both of these in the end?

John S

Yup, bought both.

Hi guys, I have one of these for sale as I underestimated the amount of thing that actually go into one of these so have one for sale as per original image and 1x galvanised steel box approx 200 x 200 x 150.
I'm after 25 for the control box and will update the price for the galvanised one once I find out how much I paid for it.
Both as new!
Would prefer collection - based in birmingham
