I canít find a case for a Rock BR



Log in to see fewer ads
Iíve got a Rock rest that has a case and am thinking of getting a better rest like the Rock Bench Rest. Iíve looked for a case and all the usual vendors say that it is no longer available. Iím not sure that the case I have will fit the BR. Does anyone know if it will fit in the case I have or if another case is available?

TIA

I have both of the Caldwell rests you referenced. I carry my Rock BR in a former toolbox with the top tray removed. It is a BOSTITCH by Stanley box that I bought at Lowe's. It measures about 24"L x 12" W x 11" H. There is room in the box to carry my rear rest bag, an elbow bag and a few other accessories in addition to the rest. IIRC, it was about $25 at the time. The box has served me well for an extended period of time. Good handle. Good hinges. Good latch system and lockable. Just remember to lower the top all the way and to raise the screw feet so they are not damaging the bottom of the case. And the regular Rock rest fits just fine too.

I bought a Milwaukee tool box for mine.I had to cut a plastic divider out of the bottom and I lined the bottom with a piece of foam mat from harbor freight.The rest fits perfectly after I did the work.It has a half tray so you can put any miscellaneous things you need inside without taking the rest apart. It has room for my rear bag, spacers, and my other sand bag.

Lots of cases available for your use. Just get the measurements for the rest and misc. items like rear bag and other items. Harbor freight has many sizes as well as other places. Sizes and prices vary as well as quality.

I bought a Husky 22" tool box from Home Depot. Lots of room with tray removed. Has 2 small compartments in the top that latch. Great weight rating (55 lb capacity), 2 year warranty, made in USA and only $15. Works well for me.

I finally purchased a 26Ē box from Loweís. Itís pretty heavy with all the Rock BR and bench rest stuff in it and a little more awkward than the carrier for my Rock and rear bag.

I have to agree with you! RFC is better than great!

That being said.....that box weighs a ton! As I get older it will get heavier. I might need a wheeled cart or someone to carry it.

I bought the 23" box as I have no need for the tray. My Rock BR and rear bag fit just fine and the box fits the rear floor board of my F150.
