  1. Something like this should be ok http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/small-plastic-box-black-114x76x38mm-lh14q
  2. They are the same, I just un-soldered the blocks and replaced it with the red\black wires
  3. That's the way I use them, but I've fitted dual outputs i.e.
  4. I use these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LED-Light-Protect-Lamps-Strip-Dimmer-Adjustable-Bright-Controller-12V-24V-8A-XG-/112344774695?hash=item1a28453827:g:x2kAAOSwo4pYJE0c They can easily be removed from the case & bolted into another case to suit your needs.

  11. I'd be interested, but how much ??
  12. I use a cheapo one from eBay, but I've also tried an expensive Microsoft Dual-Strike controller, it just needs to be a USB connected one, then in EQMod just enable & map up the keys you want to use\control.
  13. That looks to be a cut-down Wanhao i3, with a melzi control board, so can't be updated with auto bed levelling etc., but as long as you accept its limitations, it looks ok.
  14. But when you've got the printer (and you can get a workable one for £130), you won't need the fidget, as you can design & print things that are useful for Astronomy ...
  15. Take 'ur pick & print one http://www.thingiverse.com/search/page:1?q=fidget+spinner&sa=
