Thanks for this find, Eric.  TAPR is working on a custom enclosure for the TADD	products.  We hope to ship it in six weeks or so, and the price shouldn't be too far out of line compared to what you paid for the Hammond box.

We're getting the prototypes this weekend and if they look good we'll get the price and delivery date finalized and announced.

Subject: Cabinet for TADD-1

I just received my TADD-1 kit in the mail, and I wondered how I was going to enclose it after construction.  After poking through a few catalogs, I found the answer.  It just happens that the TADD-1 PCB is made to the Eurocard standard, and measures exactly 100 by 160 mm.  It also happens that Hammond
Manufacturing Company makes a nifty instrument case that is designed to have a 100 by 160 mm Eurocard slide right into the slots.  It's Part Number
1402B.  To view this cabinet, go here: www.hammondmfg.com/dwg10.htm
I ordered one of these cabinets from Mouser Electronics, as Part Number
546-1402B, for $36.99.  The catalog page is here: www.mouser.com/catalog/626/1462.pdf
Whether this cabinet/PCB compatibility was coincidental or planned is unknown to me- but it certainly is a good thing!
