Default Enclosure for IDE drives

I have about 15 IDE hard drives from 160 to 320GB from my old computers and their external backups. They cost quite a lot when new (300GB=£200) and although they are old hat now, I don't want to throw them out as they were so expensive, and they all work perfectly.
Is there a box/caddy/enclosure on the market I could put them in and then connect to the computer via one USB lead?
I have seen one which will hold five drives, but it is over £100. I could spend that on 2 1TB drives, which is more than the total capacity of the drives which would go in it. Thatís pointless, but you can see my problem.
