Speed Controller Mounting

Howdy! I have a Shapeoko 2 with various upgrades–grbl firmware is current and configuration is more or less like an X-Carve (24v spinde, z-axis belt drive, acme thread, etc.)

So this is kind of old-school: How are people mounting the spindle speed controllers similar to This Common One? I see some channels in the heat sink that might be of use, but I’m sure that thing’s not meant to lay bare on a benchtop.

Any help would be appreciated.

I put all of my electronics in a box that I mounted on the wall beside my SO2. The spindle speed controller is on the upper right, spindle power on/off in the middle, Arduino Uno/gShield on the left.


Looks good! Very complete.
