Billy, This box is made of cast aluminum. It has stainless steel hinge pivots and six stainless steel cap screws that hold it closed. It has an o-ring seal and is water tight. It is a good enclosure but a little heavy compared to my camtrakker. I believe this box is a one of a kind for me. It was a discarded telephone line junction box that was changed out by the phone company. It had a couple of holes in the sides that I had to plug with brass fittings and sealer but it should last a while.
Nice camera BB and I am looking forward to the pictures you get with it. I hope you can find a couple more of these boxes because they look like they are ideal for the project. Keep us posted on the pictures.
Hey, Thanks for the coments fellas. I appreciate all the information and post on this site that got me interested in trying to build a cam unit. Working on the second one now. Gizz, I set the camera over a mineral lick on the family farm in Mississippi about 10 days ago. We had been seeing some bucks in velvet and wanted to try to get some pictures of them. I hope to get back to the farm this weekend to check the unit. Will post pictures if we have some.
