Ice Tube replacement enclosure

by vpapanik on Sun Jun 29, 2014 12:56 pm

My 16m son really liked the ice tube clock, however he couldn't resist testing the enclosure strength. Now I have a bunch of broken acrylic pieces and screws (the PCB is still working).

I saw that there is a $10 replacement enclosure. My question is : is it possible to order the acrylic screws+nuts as well ? Thanks in advance !

We do not have those for separate sale. But most hardware stores will have them.
You will need 10 Nylon 4-40 Hex nuts
And 8 Nylon 4-40 1/2" machine screws

Thanks, actually eBay is the only alternative because imperial sizes are hardly found in European hardware stores :)

You can always use a M3 x 0.5 as that is the 4-40 equivalent in metric. You should be able to find that locally.

As an alternative to the nylon hardware, some people like the clear polycarbonate parts shown here. Given the the number of parts per package, the clear hardware is a bit expensive to order directly from McMaster-Carr.

I'd be willing to mail you enough of the polycarbonate hardware for one clock if you reimburse my expenses through PayPal ($8 plus the cost of first class international shipping). Just email me if you'd like to go that route.
