I’ve been looking for a safe, secure, and convenient way to transport and store my Mimeo board...a solution that will also work if/when I get my hands on an original Apple-1 board. At work we use Pelican cases often, so I went down that route and selected their 1495 “laptop” case with a custom foam insert. Here is the finished product:
Pelican does offer an anti-static PU foam option, but it is generally designed for single use. The way the boards sit in this particular foam, all the pins on the pack of the board are touching the foam and so are grounded to each other so static is less of a problem. The case itself is both water & shock proof, and can withstand high temperatures (but is not fire proof). This particular model includes a combination lock and can accommodate additional padlocks. It also comes with a shoulder strap.
More info on the case can be found on the Pelican website at:
If you live in the US, you can order custom foam directly from Pelican at:
If you live outside the US, you can order the case with their “pick & pluck” foam that allows you to mold it to a particular shape...not as elegant.
