RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

May 1930 Radio-Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Radio-Craft was published from 1929 through 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Radio-Craft.

Back in the days when I built a lot of prototype electronic gear, project enclosures were generically referred as a "Bud Box." Lab stock rooms always had a good variety of sizes and configurations of the soft aluminum and sometimes plastic boxes that were easily drilled, punched, filed, and painted to make professional looking equipment. In reality, not all the project boxes were made by Bud industries, but just as everyone knows you're talking about a cola when you say "Coke," it was understood that a "Bud Box" was a chassis for a home-brewed circuit. They are still seen in construction articles of electronics hobby magazines today.

Bud Industries, located in Cleveland, Ohio, began life in 1928 as Bud Radio, maker of antennas and antenna products for radio amateurs and radio professionals. This full-page advertisement for Bud Radio appeared in a 1930 issue of Radio Craft magazine - a mere two years after opening their doors. A large selection of wall plates were offered for interfacing to antennas, speakers, and even the AC line supply with 2-prong receptacles (this was decades before the safety ground prong was added). Bud Industries is still in business producing a huge line of enclosures made of aluminum, plastic, steel, die-cast, and maybe other materials as well.
