Hello all,

I promised I would put up a "HOW TO" on modifying your case so that the foam sits in nicely. It very easy and all you will need is a sharp knife or pair of large clippers/side-cutters.

Firstly, you will need to purchase a 'Craftech Aluminium Tool Case' from Bunnings for the grand sum of $24.

Step 1:
Open the shrinkwrap and open up your case to reveal the goodness inside!

OMG its full of crap!

Step 2:
Remove the tool holder and rip out the tab that it attaches to in the top of the case.

Step 3:
Cut away the two plastic tabs from the lid of the case. Clippers works great to begin with, then you can neaten it up with a sharp knife but make sure you cut away from your body and especially fingers.

Step 4:
Place your foam trays into the case.

Step 5:
Place your lid protector piece of foam into the lid before you shut it.

Step 6:
Tell all your friends to email me at minisofttransports@gmail.com so they can get one for themselves!

Craftech have changed names to:

CRAFTRIGHT

Here is a shot of the updated logo on the boxes.
THE INTERNAL DESIGN SIZES HAVE NOT CHANGED.

IT IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME BOX (SAME PRICE AS WELL) WITH A DIFFERENT NAME

Thanks,

Please see shot available on www.mini-soft.com.au

I have one of these and some foam cases from Minisoft, and I have to admit, they're the bomb.

Highly recommended.

Nice case and good price! How many layers does it hold?

But where can I buy the foam inserts? Someone told me to go to Clark Rubber?

Minisoft inserts are the "custom" trays for these cases.
PM Tiptopperoo for detail, or there's an email address in his sig.

Or Rathpex, who started the thread, who is running the business in tiptopperoo's yearlong absence smile.gif

Hey minisoft,
I have my craftright case and am looking at buying some of your wonderful trays, just debating what sizes to get.
i'm thinking 1 of each size at the moment, i'm just wondering how i'll go fitting my landraider and heldrake in the case, and if you have an easy way to arrange/cut the foam to make them fit, thanks.
