Recent queries about internal dimensions for sizing the pcbs suggest that you should subtract about 2mm from the quoted external dimensions

Please note I do not make these boxes they are imported from Germany to the UK and a custom box size requires a minimum order quantity of 20 units, so this is generally not economical, unless you are marketing a project.

Eurocard sized
1000111  162 x 102 x 30mm.......................£8.00ea.
1000161  162 x 102 x 50mm.......................£8.50ea.

Other sizes can be ordered to suit your requirements, please ask. Please note it is easy to make boxes of a different, shorter, length from these by pruning the long side wall. You are of course left with a "too long" lid but at least you have only one flange to fold to alter that, after cutting the lid down. If fact, reforming the lid flange is not actually necessary and the cropped lid can be secured with a couple of dabs of solder.....not as pretty though....I am sure our German friends would not approve !

Other sizes not stocked.....at present ...Please ask I can add your requirements to my next order

Masthead mounting enclosures (Schubert)

self-tap screws, and a mast clamp Medium pictured  below

Filter boxes   (Popular for G4DDK wideband pre-amps)

Filter boxes (Tin-plate). These come in two sizes, they have the same width and height (20mm square) but are available 37mm and 55mm lengths. They are pre-punched at both ends to take BNC connectors (with the alignment "flat") and can be supplied as a kit with either grounded or isolated BNC sockets (ask)
They are ideal for isolating transformers and small in-line filters or attenuators, or even couplers !! These are suggested for use with the wideband amp pcb kits that Sam G4DDK sells

20 x 20 x 55 (punched BNC)........................£2.60ea.
For those who want a different connector I also have un-punched boxes now in both sizes in stock
20 x 20 x 37 (un-punched)........................£2.00 ea.
20 x 20 x 55 (un-punched)........................£2.50 ea.
20 x 20 x 74mm (punched for BNC).........£3.00 ea. (Much more room to mount components between the BNC pigots.)

Coax adapters. (new) These are not of the highest quality but are adequate for most purposes, I suspect the insulation is Polypropylene rather than PTFE
I am running these stocks down as they are not really microwave  quality

Whilst these "made in China" parts are probably not the absolutely highest quality, they are used on Sam's well tested VLNAs
and we reckon they are good to at least 4GHz.

I have a stock of Selectro plugs and sockets in SMB and SMC in sealed packets please ask. 

I have also some Reverse SMA (WiFi) to standard SMA adapters please ask these are £4.00 each

Recent messages on the Yahoo group turned up the need for a LPF on the SG Labs 23cm transverter. I have a stock of DB6NT 23cm LPFs which while intended for TX 1 up to 30 watts would provide this service as a "no-tune" solution. I can also supply a basic kit which includes a 1000102 box and two  SMA (F) two hole short extension  sockets for £21.50.  The board (approx 35 x 72mm ) alone is £16.00 See the DB6NT web site for the details.

in the fabrication of SMD populated pcbs. Two levels of magnification, and a flip-down loup. I don't

Quality 10MHz HC49/U crystal (Farnell part 103-887) 10ppm tempco ................................at £1.50ea.
Though not cut for the appropriate temperature I am told these work well in John 's OCXO

GPIB / HPIB / IEEE-488 stackable interconnecting leads, There are used but visibly in good condition though there may be
a little surface rust on some of the fixing screws. They are "good makes" like IOTECH, Amplicon, RS Components etc.,
and all have a double ended connector at both ends. At this price they are not electrically tested !!
