    Ok...seeing as I get no response I went to my local tool store and got a few new ball mill and carbide inserts, and machined my own case...I bought the radio shack one, copied it into t6064 aircraft alloy, then returned it...I took one plate and made oneside then did the other, and used steel tap and sets to close it up...then after fitting it properly I got some battery acid, distilled water, organic black fabric dye, and a power supply from an old computer and acid dip the case with 12 volts passing thru it, dyed and sealed the oxide layer....so hells yeah...I have the best case ever for an elite...my signal is even better now too...that's what happens when an engineer with machinery does when people don't offer the products that I want... Haha....
