    A few years ago, I found a nice LPFRS 10Mhz rubidium clock for a few bucks on eBay.

    One day I decided to house it in an old HP Tape unit box.
    All parts will happily fit in that box:
    - a 24V switching unit on bottom case,
    - a PIC controller PCB on the front case,
    - a 4 way splitter on back,
    - the LPFRS bloc inside together with a huge cooler.
    Here the PIC controller monitors the rubidium status.

    The 24V switching power supply takes place under this separation board.
    The Temex rubidium bloc will just fit on that board with an old XEON passive cooler screwed on it.
