I'm stumped. I've got a collection of 6 circulating vcr's that we check
out to the public. They were great machines - Panasonic 1000's with
a hard case that has front and back doors. But they're all wearing out
on me and I cant find a suitable replacement. All of the ones that I've
looked at in hard cases have one or two open ends, which wouldn't be a
problem except that a high percentage of our patrons walk or ride bikes
and open ends aren't exactly weather proof.

We've tried a soft padded cloth case, but my technician hates them
because they offer no protection to the jacks on the back of the machines
which end up bent.

So, those of you with circulating collections, what brand/model do you
use? what do you like (or not like)??

Thanks!
