A box?
www.smallbearelec.com has all the parts you need, and relatively cheap international shipping. www.kustompowder.net can make you a custom powder coated box.

If you typed clearly and correctly we could help you better, I'm not quite sure what you want

Also, if you made your sig a bit smaller, that would be nice.
Thanks.

I wouldn't build an pedal enclosure myself, and if I were you, I'd either buy a pre-punched/drilled enclosure, or buy a one and drill it myself.
#8

I'm telling you, it's almost pointless to build your own enclosure. It'd kinda like trying to grow your own tree, cut it down, and make a guitar out of it. I'd recommend using the site that pink gave (which is a freaking awesome site looking at it, I might buy an enclosure from them someday soon).

I mean, you'd need a sheet of aluminum foil, something like tin snips, a machine that'll bend the corners in your box, maybe a spot welder...

just buy a box dude

It looks like a small enough box that it would take a serious stomping. Maybe if it were larger, the center would bust up after a few hard stomps.
#14
so this box shouldn't be to hard after all eh green box if i make it soild liek boss pedals

oh well, you have a metal shop to work out of

instead of growing a tree and cutting one down, it's like going to the lumber yard and slicing up a piece of wood for yourself.

good luck on your stomp box!
#16
Ohh thanks for the support ill shar my stompbox with you all when it done thats alot ot that_pink_queen because he gave me the site wich gave me the best idea im goin to add like a a peice of threaded metal so i can put screws in the bottom of it liek boss pedals if you know what i mean once again thats for the support

Hey man if you've got access to a welder you could try welding your own box up from sheet metal. I tried making a few last summer they turned alright, if i can find it il post some photos.

Check out my shop for guitar and effects parts

Ive got some hammond effects enclosure and stomp switch's im planning on listing today.

Galvanized steel will make you sick from inhaling the fumes. I would say to use Carbon steel. In 3/32 that stuff is rock solid. I am taking welding in college and I made my own enclosure. Its kind of a pain in the ass tho. making the brackets for screwing on the bottom plate. the only way to do that is either welding on some nuts and running bolts through the bottom or making tabs and tapping them for the screws you will be using. But it really not hard to make your own. If you want I can give you te measurements of mine which easily fit the circuit I built, all the electronics and the battery.

it will make you sick????? meh ogg well im make the easy face distrotion from tonpad here the link http://www.tonepad.com/getFile.asp?id=36 tell me what you think the measurments sould be for my box?

Yeah the coating on galvinized steel will burn off and the fumes will give you one hell of a stomach ache for a few days. As a welder too who has welded on galvinized, it dont hold up well and bends pretty easy. So I still say carbon steel. But as far as dimensions go I would say roughly 4 to 4 1/2 in long. 3 to 3 1/2 in wide. And maybe 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 high. You'd be best tho to try and make a cardboard replica of the enclosure you want to build, make sure everything fits, then use those dimensions to make the final box.
#22
thanks for your help mate your a true pall i hope this thing works out but could u post me a link on how to make good box's cos im i lil clueless

I dont know of any links cause I do it all off the top of my head. But if you weld it, which with carbon or any steel you would have too at some point. Just make sure you weld it solid inside and out and grind it off for appearances. If you weld in nuts to hold on the bottom plate with bolts or screws, retap the threads cause too much heat will tear out the threads of the nut. Be carefull to check and make sure it all lines up right, the box I mean, before you weld it up. And if need be cut more then you need, you can always clean it off later. But if you need more help you can pm me and I'll try to help you as much as possible.

Heres one i made earier...... a first attemp at making an enclosure out of steel. I used a heavy gauge of steel to make the main box so this little baby is heavy. The back plate is held on by 4*M4 bolts which screw into 4 lugs which are welded to the inside and threaded using a M4 tap. the cicular shape at the side is a piece of metal pipe tubing to help get diffent shape. the control plate on the top is made out of steel so thick i couldnt get the pots to fit (DOH.) I started to bore them out with a drill but gave up and bought myself a shiny new hammond 1590bb enclosure. All in all a total **** up but i could easily be done to get a unique box for your project
