I prefer wood because of keeping the coil and battery from shorting out on the inside of the box.

I'm not an "original nut" so I'd go with the wood also... Mark Congden

The F&J pump engine battery box had a wood bottom and a fiberboard liner that went around inside of steel box. A metal L bracket held the buzz coil upright while the 4 dry cells were bunched next to it.
