    I have seen some similar aluminum cases at Case Club Carrying, Storage, Shipping & Transport Cases Although these guys arnt the cheapest , they will have what you need ... If you want those inexpensive briefcase/toolbox type of cases ..both lowes and home depot carry them for around 20-25 dollars .

    Very cool. I have been thinking of getting a tool box or tackle box and some foam and making a case. I have an Orion accessory case, but have outgrown it.

    Check out Harbor Freight. They have a couple of choices to build a DIY case. I like this one. For $13, it's a bargain!

    Thanks Spud!

    Harbor Freight just rocks...

    I've bought so many tools from them I probably need to have a yard sale..LOL. Never thought to look for a alum. case there..but that's a nice deal. It's a bit small though, but it'll sure work!

    This one looks good too..

    I love Harbor Freight. There is one less than 20 minutes from me. I can browse around in there for hours.

    Harbor freight sells a few different cases in the aluminum variety ... But just a heads up ... Check the depth of the case before you buy them and make sure the items you plan on storing will fit ...

    Well, I went to HF today and found this:





    It is the same case as the one you found except it is filled with pick and pluck foam. It's not listed in the catalog online. It was $26.99 and will be perfect for all my accessories.
