The box is around five feet tall, so it would be a big vacuum cleaner.

I would never put a Unitron mount in a Uhaul box. That is just wrong

Didn't you mention something about a 6" F10 reflector?

Here's the quote "I'm building a 6 inch F10 this summer and I plan on having a rolled and riveted seamed sheet metal tube made for it"
