while you are there pick up a speed square and a utilty knife or blades. a craft shop has 1/8'' plywood and 1/8-1/4'' inch foam. a roll of double faced tape. what i did was cut all the wood first and installed it. the pieces that abut the case need to have the corners snipped off with some wire cutters. once they are all in mark the pieces where other pieces hit. i cut the plywood at 2 1/2'' and the foam at 5 1/8''. once everything is marked i used 1'' tape about 1/4'' up from the bottom. completely cover the slats w/foam. get the square and using it as a guide make cuts on your piece to remove the 1/8'' strips of foam from the piece. take a blk marker and go over the exposed wood area and you're set. this is easily reconfigured also.

edit: the extra foam for the bottom and top came from a cloth store. it's headliner.. the white cover is foamboard gotten from the craft store. weighs about an ounce.

I do Industrial maintenance and machine repair so all those things are already in my tool boxes both here and at work. Thanks for the tutorial. I'll be getting another one in a week or so and deal with it then. Thanks again!!

BigDawg,

I really love the boxes, and they are sturdier than I would have thought!! Thanks for sharing!!

Robar,

Great idea for making the partitions! Just being on the Pentax forum as a lurker still gives one the LBA, so this box and the partitions will come very handy!!

AND thanks to both of you, and the others on this forum, who welcome new comers to the forum and answer questions quite readily.

Best regards,

-thepusher

You are more than welcome for my part. I hope we can all be on a share and learn basis here. I came over from the Kodak forum here on Steve's and we have always tried to be a friendly and helpful bunch over there. So far it is much the same here. I think I'm going to like it!

Glad to see I'm not the only one using those. Got mine from Menards though, only $15 how can you go wrong? The one thing I wish is that it hada better seal for long term storage (I also use one for an old video camera).... but I guess what do you expect for $15.

And they even come in two colors.... silver and dark charcoal.... I opted for the traditional travel case silver (plus being in strong sun a lot... black not real good), but if you need more than one.... easy way to tell them apart.
