ToolstickSK project box enclosure size.
« on: 09:16 PM - 01/01/10 »
Could someone tell me the Length of the tookstick start kit..

I just ordered one to make a XIM1 and need to get a project box enclosure for it.

I looked at radio shack and they had one 5 x 2 x 2 or something like that it but it was way too tall.. I'm looking to find a project box that is more narrow and slim.


Anyways if anyone could tell me the total length of the tookstick when pieced together I'd really appreciate it.

BTW, great community here and lots of information.

Thanks

"Project Enclosure Box (optional)
Although optional, a nice project box will protect your XIM hardware from dust or other unfortunate circumstances as the ToolStick boards are pretty fragile. It is best to mount the ToolStick in the box using double-sided foam tape (a piece under the USB connector, and one under the base/daughter-card connector)."

I actually got the 4" one from radio shack and it was only $2.36  only 1" high .. it's small and thin and the tooksticksk fit in there perfect.. I'd recommend if you live in USA go to radio shack for the perfect box.
