    For some reason, I have had the most problem finding 3 way cases. (Yes, one can use a 4 way and leave one set of teeth unoccupied, but that isn't the ideal for me)

    Could you post a link? I looked through several pages and can't find any at that price.

    It always amazed me that the teeth could get broken in an unopened CD, until someone pointed out to me that the equipment used to assemble them can be pretty hard on the material. (And, obviously, it is open when it is manufactured, unless someone can figure out a magical way to make them sealed from the beginning.)
    Yes, that's what I meant. Sliding into the space between the parts of the hinge is really rough on the disc. If I don't see it sliding around, the disc is in trouble. And it's bad if the disc moves around while being shipped.

    I'm considering doing that.

    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    The people at Presto Music https://www.prestomusic.com in Leamington Spa may have some extra ones. That being said - when one of my CDs arrived and it was broken they sent me a replacement with a subsequent order.

    Thrift stores sell used CDs, and sometimes they'll be in double, triple or quadruple CD cases.

    Buy the set, gut it, toss the original stuff, and put YOUR CDs in it.

    Or ebay

    I guess I'll check the thrift store when I get a chance. Otherwise it'll have to be one of the listings online. It may not be bad to get several extra as damage to the cases is becoming a problem even when I first get a set.
