Default Systainer - Camera Gear

Tool: Nikon 7100
Case: SYS2
Hidden Floor: Soft Standard Festool foam bottom
Guts: (4) layers of 1/2 tk. Sears toolbox drawer foam glued together.
Rating: (6) beverage job / full day of work
Note:
1) 1 Festool foam is way too soft. I tried it but knew better. Besides it does not stack from layer to layer. Inconsistent shape from punch-cutting at the sheeter. That foam is best for a bottom layer only or light contents.
2) cutting out the individual layers is painstaking but the results are hard to dispute. Beats the heck out of pluck-type foam.
3) I use this daily for my sign bids/proposals.
4) This Systainer is acceptable for daily running around only. For hiking and camping use a photo type bag.

Tanos makes a much more rigid pluck foam, much more suitable than the soft stuff. IMO. Nonetheless, careful workmanship such as you do does produce a better result than any pluck foam.

The soft "vaulted" aka "eggcrate" foam in the lid: How did you remove parts of it?

Hi Ned.
Hobby knife. Marples chisel once. Hold each teet and saw them off one at a time.
Hot steel works too. Think out of the box.
But for God's sake, no corded turkey carving knives like the doofuses making gun cases on You Tube.
If your gun case was made within a short video then that is probably what it will look like at the gun range.
