  1. One issue I have always had has been how to light the display cases for my fossils. I really didn't want to be bothered with hard wiring the lights especially in light of the fact that I may change the configuration in the future. I tried LED lights that were battery-operated but they gave off too much glare. I found some battery-operated LED lights that have a translucent panel that diffuses the light and actually has three different brightness settings. Below are some pictures. I'll also try to post the link to the Amazon listing for the light. Tom https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B083S7SKL6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. I do like getting different cases for the storing of fossils or for collecting in the field. Today I saw this at a large home improvement store that starts with an “M”. This case is very nice and well made, it is also is compartmentalized for different size fossils- it is 17” by 14 “. Lastly it was on sale for $19.99, so I had to buy it.
  3. In the past I have posted some plastic “Plano” brand cases that I periodically find and buy from Goodwill. These are great cases, they are made very well and are compartmentalized and perfect for storage of smaller fossils. The below pic shows some of the Plano cases that I have, they are the thinner ones. But I digressed- so today I stopped in a Goodwill and picked up two of the below cases that must have been used by a salesman for samples. These cases are very nice and well made and they will be perfect when out collecting at road cuts for smaller items such as brachiopods, etc. These cases are also compartmentalized and will allow me to sort fossils as I collect them rather than placing them in plastic bags where the fossils could get damaged by the end of the day. And at a cost of $3.99 each, I could not go wrong.
  4. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing an area of what I do not know. I'm guessing it involves nerve fibers/channels.
  5. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing more channels/cross sections of blood flow(the small solid dark gray areas), and nerve channels. I'm not entirely sure what the large dark areas are, although I believe it to be related to blood flow as well.
  6. Triceratops skull with brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing the spongy internal bone growth
  7. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    2 pieces of a triceratops skull with brain case impression. Blood vessels, veins, and arteries visible, as well as nerve channels. I have to contact in order to get the fossil information again.
  8. display cases?

    Hi all Since I was thinking about getting more into fossil hunting I'm going to need a good spot to store my finds. does anyone have any suggestions on airtight glass/plastic display cases? on a side note, what about brass identification plaques? i think those would be helpful Thanks -Diamond
  9. UK Riker case

    Does anyone know of a good site for Riker cases located in the UK, besides Just In Case? They are not only pricey, but mostly sold out every time I visit their site. Thanks!
  10. 3D printed display stand

    Constantly forgetting to order display tools to securely display my fossils which are right now at risk of being damaged from grinding the glass shelves in my display, I decided to print a stand for my last model before I took my 3D printer home (and not use it until I get a microSD reader so I could transfer files to the printer). I didn't really pay too much attention to exact dimensions, but it actually printed quite fine and did fit one of my boxed fossils I wanted to display but couldn't before. The stand is blue because that's the only color of filament I own When I get to buy a microSD reader sometime later, I'll probably print more of these stands, and maybe even print a custom stand for all of my fossils (except for riker mounts which simply can't be printed)
  11. I thought I would share this with everyone. I was thinking about a way to display some of my fossils in a manner that all different views were possible with multiple fossils. I did not want to do it with the expense of riker mounts. Also, riker mounts would not be deep enough to put an echinoid in profile view. Then I thought about what people use for displaying sports memorabilia. Baseball cubes, maybe. Football and basketball cases, too big. So what about hockey puck holders? So I went on Amazon and found 2 hockey puck holders for about 5 bucks. They are 3 by 3 by 1 1/4. I bought them. Then I bought a pack of poly foam from Hobby Lobby, 1 inch thick. I trimmed a piece of foam to fit into one of the holders. In it I put 3 echinoid, Eurhodia rugosa ideali. Showing top, bottom and side profile. Bingo. Works great. I can order a dozen of these for $12.97 including shipping and the foam was $3.80 for two 12 by 12 pieces which will make 32 pieces for the cases. So for $16.77 I get 12 cases. You cannot buy 12 riker mounts for that price. This will work for smaller echinoids, shark teeth, shells, ammonites, and many other items. This is the end result.
  12. Way back when my 3 sons were just little tykes and I had no moneys, I decided to build my own display case. This was about 24 years ago and I was just beginning to find fossils but had no where to put them. I figured this would be able to handle everything I could possible find? Ha! Boy was I naive. Anyways, having no moneys I used 2x4's and cut them to size, found a piece of nice ply for the backing, I had to buy the brackets and track though, and while I was doing a paint job on a house, the guy who changed out all the windows came by to pick up the old 1/4 inch plate glass ones to throw them away. Well, a 12 pack later that evening he brought them over to me house. I cut the glass to size and I then a bit of paint and WaaaaLaaaaa!! I had a display case for about $20. As you can see there is alot of room left to fill, but once i go through the right box/s it will be full and I will have to find more room somehow to display even more stuff!!! I just brought this display case home from my other property about 3 weeks ago from one of my storage sheds. Always something to do. RB
  13. My new display case

    My new display can you set my cousin gave me I had two extra I had two extra shelves cut, because you can never have too many shelves.
  14. New custom display case

    I just picked up a display case for my newly acquired Hyphalosaurus (see this link for the story of how I found it) I commissioned a local carpenter to build it for me, he did a great job, I will certainly use his services again in the future. I might make a stand for it but haven't decided yet.
  15. A little off topic, but very excited about my equus hoof find. Now need to find a case for it to keep it safe. It's 3 1/2" x 3 5/8" x 2 1/4" high. Riker doesn't make a box that deep. Any ideas?. Right now just wrapped in bubble. Thank you.
  16. Lighted Display Cases

    Earlier this year when my wife and I returned from Tucson with an SUV loaded to the brim with fossils and rocks, and we quickly realized that we had no way to properly display them. We searched and searched for "nice" display cases, but all we could find was plastic snarge. Restoration Hardware was the only place that sold nice specimen display cases, but they were too big, and too expensive. I told my wife "I could make those, and I'd put lights in them!", so I did. We spent the last few months coming up with a good design and making prototypes. Now we've got an entire house full of these things. -Brian
  17. Here is a method of displaying large ammonites in a deep display cabinet. The specimens are mounted using "L" screws of various sizes screwed into the back of the box. I custom fitted a 1/4 " plywood piece instead of the normal box back to provide a better anchor for the screws. I used spray on adhesive to apply the leather look fabric to the back for a richer look. You can finish the wood and leave it a natural look also. The small ones are hot glued to the fabric.
