If you are planning to build a light-weight travel case with 6mm plywood panels and smaller hardware, you will need this small ball corner among some other things. This is a 3-Legged small size ball corner made of 16 gauge steel with 3 mounting holes. It is 1.0mm thick for medium-duty use. We also offer a small flat corner if you prefer a flush finish.
If you might be shipping the case via a courier and transporting it in a truck we recommend you build your road case with 9mm or 12mm plywood panels and use the medium to large-sized flat corners and other hardware.
However, there is nothing wrong with travel cases build of 6mm plywood panels and smaller hardware like this one if all you need is a light-duty case that you can easily pull around.
