I have a question on the foam. When you "pluck" the foam, are you able to put it back together? If my things are in the case, will the foam cubes move around, or are they fixed? I'm worried that my sensitive things, metalware and glassware might bump each other during transit, etc.
Thank you very much! I really appreciate the time you put into this question.
Maybe you could put it back together with glue, but it probably would not be the same as when you first plucked it. I pluck square holes about 3"x3" and carry my camera lenses. They don't knock into each other and have been very well protected. I carry 6 lenses in the 1450. I keep 3 squares of foam between them and that works well. Don't make the mistake of cutting this with a knife .... just pick the squares you want to remove and pull them apart, you'll be left with a square hole and a square block of foam in hand. If you need to put foam back in the bottom of the hole for more cushion , just tear the amount you need off the block and insert into hole. Also, you can get solid foam and cut round holes with a thin bread knife or a hot knife. ~ Peter
