    Hello everyone 
    i found what I think a perfect case to carry our CI parts. I went to Walmart in the fishing dept (I am not a fisherman) I found this case for about $7.00 it’s 6 1/2 long 4wide a little more rhea 2 inch deep the best part is both sides open top and bottom it also has dividers to make rhe compartment larger or smaller I have a man bag and work very well. You can put almost all of the parts in this case . It will not hold a processor there too big I never take mind just in case you lose it. 
    Thanks
