Curta case

A wooden suitcase sits uselessly at my home - so I had the idea to design a division to protect the most valuable Curtas. By chance, I came across a bamboo box from
Ikea that lent itself to this. Industrial felt will hold the boxes in place - and inside, the felt will protect the Curtas.




...more pictures as progress is made

Cool

Curta case

First placement of IKEA boxes - unfortunately, the dimensions differ a little, so the felt inserts need to be adjusted.



Next step: determine felt mass and order...

.... as usual .. great work Murff !

I have been thinking about a similar thing. Indeed I think "How do you store and display your Curtas?" would be a great discussion topic

Curta case

... after a long search for suitable wool felt, I found these strips, which are self-adhesive on one side.




This required adjusting the arrangement in the case and in each box.



The next step will be to cut and glue the felt....

The CURTA case is finally lined with felt - including the eight individual boxes.




. . . the Curta canisters are held well in place, so no side felt was necessary.

















With the case lid closed, the Curtas are perfectly fixed and safely stowed . . .


Cool

It looks great Murff.
Its interesting how the Contina case is taller than the Curta version.
So impressive that you have this (jealous).

Best thanks for both feedbacks!


I am very happy with the result - now there are at least eight Curtas less flying around!
