I looked on the net, I work at the Shack, and I have not been able to find one in my web searches - so I must ask it here if anyone has!

I am using an old AT power supply for a lighting project on my glass desk; going to hook up 7 dual kits to my desk. I also want to carve out a hole so I can have the powerswitch on the exterior and stuff.

Crazy I know, Useless - probally, cool? TOTALLY!

So yer looking fer an AT power supply? New or used? Donated?

methinks this should be in the sale/buy section...but I'll spend yer money either way... Big Smile

Some of the best places to find an old AT PSU is from old computers at garage sales, repair shops...

Here's some pulled AT PSUs at PC Liquidator going fer $3 plus shipping... Wink Smile

Here's one from Computer Surplus Outlet going fer $4 plus shipping... Wink Smile

If that's too cheap I'm sure I can find new ones that cost more than an ATX supply... Shocking Smile

I have the AT PSU already, what I need is a project box that it will fit in, and still have room to put the wires in it.

My idea is for the front have a push button for on and off. And on the back make the vents and essentially "mount" the molex connectors.

Oh.... Sad Smile

Almost got some money... Big SmileShocking Smile

Well...I'd just strip the PSU down and build one out of wood. Not sure about panel mounting unless you epoxy them to a frame. Wink Smile

Will this work? It's probobly too small as-is, but maybe you could find a way to stick a few of them together into a BIG project box? Confused
