CPU enclosure and printers

Hello All:
I may have already sent this to the group but I've mentioned it to one or two people and they drew a blank about this drawing. This enclosure is a suggested design for putting the cpu under a table top at a voting station. The side where someone could easily insert a probe like a pencil or a paper clip item is blank to discourage that behavior. It is set up to be sealed and locked. There should probably be notch where power enters the enclosure and it may be a good idea to have a 1" to 2" flange around the perimeter to strengthen the cage and make it harder to get into the cpu. The actual size of the cage is somewhat problematic. I've seen CPU's like the Compaq Evo that are about the size of an atlas or a telephone book. I've also got a HP X4000 workstation sitting next to me that's approximately 19"x19"x8.5". I guess one could start out with 24"x22"x10" and work down from there. The 24" would be from the front to the rear of the CPU to leave enough room for cables. The
 actual point of this is to present the potential difficulties in enclosing a printer regardless of type.
Thanks, Ed Kennedy
