    Electrical connection box 6 by 8 by 4

    The hardware store in the town near me didn't have an electrical connection box that I needed to run my conduit from the panel in the container in my shop over to where I relocated my machine shop van trailer . I didn't want to have to drive 150 mile round trip to Lowes or Home Depot so I made my own out of a small parts storage bin.
    First I cut the 6 by 8 inch bin down from 6 inches deep to 4 inches then used 2 aluminum blocks and the handle of a strap type filter wrench as the anvils for forming the edges then it was just a matter of hole sawing a couple of holes in the ends

    I have several dozen of these boxes and before I am finished wiring the shop I may need to use most of them. I will make the cover later
