Yes, very good idea, sadly there are no closed up pictures of the finished product. My experience with 3D printing is that the marks of the printing are visible (unless is a very expensive printer and even so...). Prices are very competitive for around $50 you have 3 boxes and one lid, and lots of colors and 2 different lids...

I was trying to place an order and while doing that, I realized that the Boston boxes bases are higher than the okito and the slot bases (both have same dimensions)which is a small problem if you work with more than one box at the time like the Mojo Boxes from Farmer (my originally idea to use these boxes because of the colors), I think switching an okito for a boston and always showing one, will not be a big of a deal. As a reference my Jim Z brass boxes are all the same
The height difference is Okito 0.46" or 1.16cm and the Boston is 0.51 or 1.29cm. The diameter of the 3 boxes is 3.56cm

So, got both the Boston and okito in half dollar size. They are a “matte” blue color and despite being very light, they are very thick and sturdy. When 4 barber half dollars are put in, it has a nice smooth “roll”/“flip”. Also, unlike most boxes I’ve had, there is plenty of room for a coin with an expanded [ . Thus, making for a great set for silver dollars (especially if using a [ ) for the price.

I use the blueprints that Jim gave dad. I recently turned a 3 box set that holds 6 quarters and all the boxes are the same size. If anyone needs a set of Jim Zee boxes to Jim's specs
give me a holler.

Years ago I got a plastic type Okito Coin Box from Ken Brooke in England. The base or bottom has to be a little thicker for the coin box move, or drop move to work properly. Mine is thicker.

Hard to see from the pictures, but it does not look like this place knows this.

Buy if you are curious, but I these may be more difficult to maneuver. It would be nice if you would report back your experiences. I am sure we would be grateful.
