    My goal was a Battery Box for my radio and RPi. Out of that project came multiple 3D printed parts.

    A triple power pole housing and fuse block cover.

    Searching for quality inline fuses for 12awg and lower was getting me nowhere. I decided some F2 connectors in 3D printed housing would be my best option.

    With my Battery Box complete, my radio needed rails for protection.

    What radio is that and do you have the plans up on thingiverse?

    The radio is a FT-818. The models are not on Thingiverse. My plan is to have my own site where I host my models and share the results of my amateur radio experimenting. Let's just say Thingiverse and I disagree on how to run a website.

    I've made a few more prints in perpetration of Field Day.
