Leather Case for DM42

Post by KimWood » Fri May 31, 2019 10:46 am

I have recently found a very nice leather case for the DM42. A robust & well made leather holder with belt loop. It is an Australian Buckaroo Leatherworks MPPX case. It's a snug fit, and I could not be more pleased. The bottom of the case has two small leather pieces folded into the bottom of the holder to provide a little more cushioning for the item (iPhone, etc) inserted into the case. I snipped these off to allow the DM42 to be a little more deeply seated. The Leatherworks MPPX case could have been purpose built for the DM42. It's reminiscent of the old hard leather HP-41 case. I recommend it highly, and it looks fantastic. The workmanship is of the highest quality. I will buy one or two more for my DM42 collection. Buckaroo leather cases are distributed by a number of suppliers and should be widely available. If you have difficulties shipping outside of Australia, I suggest that you contact them directly. It's a marriage made in heaven! Regards, Kim.

Hey, now I can wear my calculator on my belt again. Just like back in the '70s when I was a nerd!

WAS a Nerd?!

You say that like it is a bad thing.
Just the fact that we are here on an RPN Calculator Forum makes us all still nerds by definition! :D

I apologize if my comment came across as disrespectful. It was not meant to be. It was meant to be an affectionate jab at my fellow "Nerds".
I wore a calculator on my belt in the 70's and 80's as well.

I like the looks of that Buckaroo case but I don't see a source in the US. I have been using the following case for my iPhone for the past couple of years:

https://www.amazon.com/Tradesman-Holder ... B00G8RNLWI

It has held up very well and It fits the DM42 like it was made for it.

Or if you want to delve even deeper into nerd territory and have a 3D printer, here is a link to a hard case that I designed for the DM42:

We were all taking it in good fun. I know I was!

I like the looks of the case you created. I was able to adapt the ASTECH Hard Case to the DM42. See my post in the following thread
for some photos:

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1961&p=8764#p8764


It works great. But of course ASTECH cases are difficult to find. I was fortunate to acquire of couple a number of years ago.

I used to be a nerd. I still am, but I used to be too.

Good grief. Did you ever hear anything about international trade? How would this world look if everyone would buy in his home village only? Relentless ... ummh ... Amazon is for the fearful village people ...
