Hard case for just about any metal detector

#1
After getting my new used Etrac the thought of it rolling around in my storage unit, like my IDX Pro, was just not going to happen. I searched the web for a good deal on a Pelican hard case, but the cost of a new one of those would set me back almost 200 bucks. I knew at times the detector would stay in storage for 3-4 months at a time without being used. So I definitely wanted to be secure and water tight. Taking a different direction I came up with this solution to the problem. Let me know what you think.

It's a modified Stanley Fax Max, $35.00 at Home Depot

Room for everything you need plus a space under the mud tray for my web belt and relic bag. Total cost: 4 trips to the hardware store, $75.00 in parts and about 20 hrs. of prep time putting it all together. Now that I know where everything fits I could probably do it in 5 hrs. The most time consuming art is cutting the foam bottom to fit. :biggrin:

28" Fatmax
I know this is an old thread, but one of my local Wally Worlds has these very cases on for under $25 in a center isle, so I grabbed two of them
You might want to check your local store if you're looking for a deal on one. Got mine at the Moncton, N.B. store. I don't know if this is a specific store deal or not.
