Post WTB: ESDEE CALI 3646 CASE SET
As the title says, I need a Esdee cali 3646 case set. Preferably, a case set which has not been reformed.
If you have any, please PM.
You could also make a trade for a cali 3646 NW case set + cash

So you've had the 2 cases and you could compare, right?
I personally like the "square" shape of Esdee midcase, in contrast to the more rounded shape of NW.
In a post from Riesco, I have seen that you have reworked the NW case and that you resaped midcase making it more square. Is it also possible to perform this operation with NW cali case set? I mean if you have enough meat in the midcase for your remodeling.
Sorry for my lousy english

Both cases are too square I believe ,,, esdee is more square.
To shap the esdee case with the wires on is more tricky.

Both take a fair amount of work to get right. I think the nw is easier to get right

You can indicate which areas to remodel?

I'm no expert but the esdee one is way to square so need metal off towards the corners,, which unfortunately makes the corners thick so tapering it top and bottom helps.

The newer nw ones are closer but still need the corners doing,, then the cases are wider on the underside than the top, so I profile all the sides .
The older nw ones were more rectangled than square. For me the nw are better as they are closer to the correct shape and all shaping can be done before the lugwires are soldered in.

I have a set of brass templates that I use to ensure I get the shape right which really helps
