Hi:
A month or so ago in a discussion on cases mention was made of such a case described as 'slimline', it was slightly longer than the normal briefcase. I have searched under briefcase and cannot find it. I presume it was in this section of the forum, does anyone have a clue?

Check out http://www.malloymodernmagic.com and look for the Slim-Line case.

There is also an inexpensive one at Lowes Hardware.

NOT sure if it is the same one as Lowes has but the Home Depot near me had a larger aluminum case for 19.99 by Husky, it was in the gift idea section at the front of the store.

It has adjustable areas in it plus a hanging storage area for cards, sharpies, asst items hanging on the lid, and additional space behind it. It is just large enough to hold my whole kids shows including 10' rings, dove pan, and 2 bags of balloons. It was cheap enough that I am going back to pick up another one so I can have my adult shows in another case ready to go.

You can see pics of it here

I get so confused in the hardware stores - it was Home Depot where I saw it!

Another option would be to look for poker chip cases, the aluminum variety, and with a little reworking of the insides you would have what you require.

I have been using these same Home Depot suitcases for about two years, and for $20 each you can't beat them. In my area, they had them in silver, red or black, so I got red for my pitch work, black for trade shows and silver for myself, this makes it easy to pick up the right case and go. The dividers are very convenient and the top insert makes it easy to locate pens, a wand, my lav mike, small gaffs and other loose odds and ends.

Of course, the suitcase sides are not as thick as the more expensive aluminum briefcases, so you need to be a little careful with them. But if you don't throw them around, they should last a fairly long time. SETH

Everyone loves the Huskys at Home Depot.
$19.99 sturdy and spacious.
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

Depending upon what size you need, there are some great deals on ebay. I bought a case for my "Run, Wolf, Run" there. Perfect fit. It was listed as a "6-pistol case". That secret was...the case was only $10..shipping was like $35. That way the seller doesn't pay more to ebay. You don't pay a percentage on shipping, only the item cost! Still a fantastic case for a bargain price.

I wanted to thank everyone on this board for pointing me toward the Home Depot case. It's cheap, strong, effective and versatile. It is a little big and ridiculous looking, but for the price, its great.

I also bought one from Home Depot. I later bought a black one from Harbor Freight Company.

While the Home Depot cases are okay, the metal sheathing is a bit thin and tends to dent easily. The aluminum camera accessory cases from Ritz/Wolf Camera are thicker and hold up better. Of course, they are more expensive.

I have bought 4 of the cases from Lowe's and they have served me well. They do ding up a little but the cost outweight durability.

Google search poker supplies... You can find a ton of those types of cases without chips...
