Re: variable transformer enclosure
It is OK to house them in a box. I would use a ventilated box if you plan to run much power through it. A nice case can give you room not only for a big satisfying knob, but also a couple meters to monitor output voltage and current. Maybe add an outlet. I had a bypass switch on my old box - so I could use the VAriac for troubleshooting, but once past its need, I could run right off the mains.  
 
My current Variac has its own housing these days, and the enclosed one stayed at its old shop.
