Useless Acrylic Box - Black


13.95 USD
$13.95 ea.

Here's a screw-together black acrylic box specially designed for the Useless Box.

Description [Hide]

This is just an acrylic box with screws for assembly. There aren't any electronic bits - unless you already have the interior components, this is an even more Useless Machine, with exciting "does absolutely nothing except be a box" action. The full kit can be found here.

This is just the box, cut out of black acrylic, and ready to assemble together with 20 sets of 4-40 nuts & bolts.

Be prepared to spend a few minutes peeling the protective paper off the acrylic (it helps to loosen the glue with a hair dryer).
