I would be interested in a bifold wallet style fancy case for my DM42 and DM41x. With a pocket on one side for the calculator and A slot on the other side for a field notes notebook. It would be nice if there was also room to hold a small pen and a few calling cards. :idea:

Any body else interested?
If you want we can talk about it, I'll do my best.
Thank you for your reply. You seem to write well in English. Better than some of the English speakers, including me, on this forum. I will try to sketch up something to illustrate what I envision on the bifold wallet style case for the DM42 and DM41x. Basically, I would like to be able to open the wallet and use the calculator without removing it from the wallet. I think this means a thin elastic loop at the top and bottom of the calculator. I have to admit that I haven't completely thought it out yet.

I may have a problem!

Hello,

Ohh ... thank you, that helps me to trust my English a little more ... but not so much, please forgive me if I don't express something well.

I have been thinking about your proposal for a case without taking the calculator out of the wallet, I would like to find a way, please give me a little more time, if I would need the exact measurements of the space available between the keys, screen, ect.
I don't have DM42 to measure, I made a cardboard mold.
Any idea is good to study options that you like.

Thank your for your quick and thoughtful reply. I am currently using a folio case for my DM41x and DM42 that has on one side a clear plastic pocket to hold the calculator and on the other side pockets for pens, pencils and other small objects. There is also a pocket under the calculator for a small notebook or calling cards. between the two sides is a neoprene flap to protect the calculator when the case is zipped closed.


If you use this method then the key spacing doesn't matter. I hope this helps.

I did at one point and had some nice cases made both for printers and calculators.

The guy who made them was later convicted for child molestation and is spending a long time in gaol. A good thing IMO.

Yes, of course, thank you. How can I see the photos of the cases?

Same here: I've got HP's true leather cases for Pioneers and Voyagers. They are the best you can get for these calculators.
Would you mind providing a picture as well? I would love to know what these used to look like and, surprisingly I find it difficult to find information about those. Do they have a flap that folds and tucks under a strap?

The DM42 thickness is tapered from a side profile. I measure 13mm at top and tapers to 8mm at thinnest at bottom of calculator. Plus or minus 1mm of measurement inaccuracy.
