It would be nice if someone could produce an Aztech type case for the DM42. They were perfect for the 42S. When closed they were small and protected the 42S. When open they rested and felt good in the hand and set at the right angle when setting on the desk. They were the perfect case. I would love to have some for the DM42.

The ASTECH case is fantastic. Perfect for protection in the field.

Here's a closeup of the Hinge assembly. There are two pins that hold it together.

The case is slightly too wide for the DM42 to fit. I was able to get a nice fit
by cutting two lengths of the soft fabric side of Velcro. Put this on each side
of the case. The DM42 slides in and out nicely and stays in the case.

If you look close, you can see the Velcro on the left and right sides of the case.

Another nice thing about the astech is the Ir is still exposed when ope;.
