I've been meaning to speak to you about making some of these for me. If you give me a ring next week I've got some nice boxes you can have a look at. I also have my spare power head sitting on a pallet if you'd like to measure that up as well.

depends what you would call a demand...... how many do you need to make to make it worth your while? and IMO wood will get knocked around too easy. Hence why i was going to make some grp or carbon fibre ones a while ago.

Good luck
