    Perspex is an option, just like the flow through you can get with aircrate!
    @459b I guess about 2 sheets would work, have an idea?

    I've got a friend looking into microchip waffle trays for me. It looks like egg crate with a wider flat edge. The microchips get packed and shipped in them. May be good for smaller projects.

    Looks like this. Smaller, plastic, square, black, wider strong edge but I'll know more regarding size and hole size once I have one. The square holes are apparently 5 by 5mm or so.

    Hi @Bendor,
    This looks interesting.
    Have the guys given you some indication of what we would pay for these yet.
    Black could contrast frags nicely.
