Pelican Case

Post by Flourishing Faces on Sun Nov 02, 2014 11:28 pm

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone had converted a pelican gun case for their kit.
I came across a Pelican 1700 case for 1/2 the price and would love to know if anyone was successful with it before I invest the time and money.
Thank you.

Yip. That's the one. But they're not that cheap new here in Australia.

Yes, Yes and YES!! Been using it for years and absolutely love it! Just got one a wee bit smaller (still on wheels) for my daughter. Well worth the investment--lifetime guarantee!

Where would I find pics of your case Anniel? I think it would be a good investment too. Just want to be sure. Thank you.

Thanks little monsters. I've seen Tanya's a few months ago. It's the pelican that I'm looking to see. If you have a link Anniel that would be great.

http://www.amazon.com/Pelican-1720-Watertight-Wheels-Without/dp/B001AKFR34/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1415129295&sr=8-11&keywords=1720+pelican+case

This is the one I have.

This is the one I got my daughter:

http://www.amazon.com/Pelican-1700-Long-Case-Black/dp/B00286M5OS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1415129372&sr=8-1&keywords=1700+pelican+case

I put in black wipe-able foam (black, from the exercise depatrment at Walmart & long strips of velcro striped width-wise. I used the softer loop on the case & the rough strip on the bottom of my paint jars.

I can stand mine upright, my daughter's won't balance like that. That being said--I do like the size of hers a little better as I can see it limiting what I pack--hehe, by a whole 20 centimeters!!

Both will fit width-wise in our cars.

Fully packed is as my avatar. I have since cut my brushes to one folder & changed my rinse water container to a larger "one stroke" size that I like better.

I am clueless as to get images on here--forgive me!

What are you putting your case on? I wanted to have a wheeled gun case and have legs attached to it.

Do you think I could attach them together some how?

I always ask for the client to provide a table...everything is contained, so no mess on their table. The ONLY place I have been nervous about placing it is a conference room at a law firm (you know those fancy mahogany tables that cost more than my car?) & I just have them cover it with a towel to prevent scratches.

Honestly, since plastic doesn't heal itself, I would be a bit wary of drilling into/attaching legs. I started using a case to simplify my life--and events always have tables & popups.

(I have found that the little things I ask to be provided with makes a huge difference in how I am perceived when I perform.)

After seeing the "craft & go" and Edie's both in action--and knowing I am not as meticulous about caring for my toys, I am thankful I went this route early on. (If you are responsible, by all means, the C&G is a little lighter & a beautiful set up, but you have to take more care...)

OK, just checked out your links--I would hold out for a Pelican. (My son's friend planted his large heavy teenage feet on my lst case similar to the pictured one & destroyed it thoroughly...if he'd been mine, he might not have lived through the experience...but it got me to upgrade!--blessings in disguise...)

Thanks for the input anniel! Smile
I am still researching options.
I love the idea of the craft n go, but it is a bit expensive for me at the moment.

I would check your local craigslist/offerup & see if you find anything out there on the cheap.
