Hi All.   Squires, that famous supplier of model railway stuff? Present at many shows? Or they used to be??I am not that patient . And I have found an old catalogue, featuring an item that I am looking for. It is a
Plastic ABS Potting Box ( nothing to do with Pots?) They say “Ideal for Housing Circuits and Mounting Switches, but, when I googled it, I couldn’t find anything like it. Does any Modeller know if they are still available ??
Best wishes. Kevin

Hi Ron.   Thank you. I made an error ? The catalogue was “Expo”, must be too early in the day for me. I haven’t got s Squires catalogue , with electrical goods, just there “Hand Tools “ . But I will give them a bell later.Best wishes. Kevin
