Hi, I am thinking that I could use a pokerset aluminum case for carrying decks and other stuff. Anyone ever tried it? Don't know where to put my chips though, but I should get a 1000 chips case anyway, for poker and then perhaps use the 500 one I already have for storing magic props.. Smile

I do like those cases Kim but it seems I've seen them in office supply stores and they should cost less without the chip set!

I was traveling over the holiday and ran across one similar for $19.95 at a "Flying J" truck stop in North Carolina. It was black with silver edging, like a lot of road cases.

Looking back...I wish I had picked it up myself.

Okey, I hope they have something similar here in Sweden.

Ooooppsss...I didn't catch where you were from. Maybe the suggestion will work for others in this country.

If there are "truck stops" in Sweden, and you live near one, you might stop by and see what they have for sale. The drivers like things like that since space is limited inside the cab to store things.

I found an aluminum contractor's briefcase at Home Depot for about $20. It's not as sturdy as some other more expensive ones I've seen, but if you don't bang it around, it should hold up fairly well. I've been using mine for two years now, and except for a few small dents and several almost invisible scratches, it looks pretty good.

The case comes in either red or black, with silver edging and a bunch of dividers that you can use to split up the interior any way you like. I believe it is about 4-5" deep, but in any event will hold a set of Bazar DeMagia Cups, a Card Duck, a small Nest of Boxes, two dozen Svengali decks and Money Paddles, or whatever else you may need. And at that price, you can't go too far wrong. SETH

Hey Mick...if they have it at the Flying J near you, let me know the name of the manufacturer. They might have a site and sell them over the web.

Good luck. Mark.

Check out Harbour Freight, they have some aluminum cases low priced. I'm using several small ones and sorting out props by types. Use the crate type truck and you can carry a lot of material- it also helps keep[you organized. ( For me its a great help)
