    Yes, the Warneke boxes are on heavier stock, and I prefer them to Paulson boxes for this reason. Also, it seems like Paulson went to an even lighter stock for the boxes that came with the PCF Promo and Apache Elite chips... which I think is a step in the wrong direction.

    I met with Greg Warneke this morning and have some good news and bad news...

    GOOD NEWS
    - The 43mm insert should be fairly easy for them to make. He is working on a sample now and will get me a quote for 500 and 1,000, including setup charges and tax.

    BAD NEWS
    - The 43mm insert can NOT be swapped out as the insert on 39mm boxes. The reason being, the lid, bottom, and insert for the 39mm boxes are all on the same die.

    Based on how the 43mm insert is working out, I will probably make it a separate offering entirely. At this point I may just buy a bunch on my own and sell them PCF-vendor-style. I'll follow up with a separate thread on that so I can get an idea of interest/demand.

    So, let's please keep this thread focused on the 39mm boxes/inserts only.

    I have enough, but to anyone who is on the fence, these boxes are fantastic! You won't be sorry if you order some.

    As far as I'm concerned, these are much better in terms of both quality and fit.

    Many high fives to @justsomedude for working with the folks at Warneke to produce these boxes.

    Thanks @abby99 and @justsomedude .

    Unfortunately I recently purchased 50 Paulson boxes which are still in a warehouse in L.A.

    I might grab 50 off @uclaure if he has any extras.

    I only really wanted 100, so I can definitely pass 50 on to you. However, these boxes might not get here before you plan on coming to LA to pick up your trove of chips.

    I am still interested in about 40-60 boxes. If someone has extra and is wiling to ship to Canada please let me know.

    If the GVRD guys want some I can arrange to get a bunch and reship local as well as within Canada.

    Yes. In for 50 and would like to get them before June 5 if at all possible. If not possible....still in for 50.

    - Thanks Tony !

    PS. Do these Warenke boxes fit in a USPS SFRB?

    OP shows that it probably won't be done until mid June, plus shipping time.

    @justsomedude I'll do 400.
