I dug this thread up again as I needed some more of these cases.
The original Amazon links are still going. I got a 4 slot case for only £13.
Cheapest eBay equivalent was £19

This guy does them cheaper even with standard postage of £4.02, best to order more than one really.

The add does say with free shipping though, so donít get way it isnít.

The chev A4 foam will fit into most A4 storage drawer units available from Amazon, The Range, Staples, Ebay and many others, at various prices, plastic or metal, cheapest I've seen were in Lidl, but they only appear occasionally.

These are very good I have a few from eBay but I also got some from tings for £8 each. I think they do go to other shows and exhibitions so worth keeping an eye out for.

Ive used this guy, free shipping and not too slow.
Ive stuck with Kato after getting a few whilst working abroad and just decided to keep them all the same

Big Bad John,

Do you store stock in these blue cases on the wheels or pushed sideways into the slots?
