    Re: Sextant Case Foam

    Hi Robin,
    Almost anything will work.

    My first try with a Davis sextant was a block of furniture foam and an electric knife. It looked like I sewed it up with a grapevine but it still works after 20 years.

    It might be cheaper, and surely more simple, to buy a new plastic case from Harbor Freight with foam that’s already almost cut through. You just pull out the foam cubes that will make a fitted hole for your sextant.

    The precut foam might be available on its own.
    Regards, Noell
