    Doskocil

    I have one of these cases and bought another for $12. on the e site. Mine has some nice foam since I bought it new but the used one that is coming looks like the only foam is in the lid. Does anyone know where or what foam I can get for one? Any generic foam suggestion is fine.

    Thanks,
    Curt

    Good morning, Curt;

    Any of the plastics houses should have a polyurethane foam sheeting that comes in varying thicknesses up to about 4 inches. I preferred the "closed cell" polyurethane. If there is not an industrial plastics supply house where you are, try looking also for a furniture upholstery shop.

    My memories of the Doskocil people come from the cases they made for firearms. They worked great for other long thin things that I did not want to see bent or damaged.
    Enjoy;

    Or even the fabric store. They use the foam for furniture cushions etc. It comes in different thicknesses too.
    Once you have it cut you can cover it with something like a micro fiber cloth for looks & smoothness.
