Well, after sitting in my inside storage area undisturbed for three weeks, I tried to open my N11 JMI case to show my sister the scope. The top refused to go beyond about 30 deg without protest. I finally forced it open.
Figuring it was a bent or bowed hinge (which was impossible, because nothing could have damaged the case), I found it was a bowed hinge. I suspect this happened becasue the plastic was still curing, and the stress caused the edge of the case to deform. So, yet another case modification project...I'm SO happy.

More on the hinge issue with the JMI case - although the hinge was warped, its main need was not for straightening, but for lubrication - a bit of SuperLube, and it's easy to open.
OT - I finished cutting the foam for my New Improved EP case - anybody need about a bushel of itty-bitty pieces of ground up foam? Note: Forstner bits work great, but they're a teensy bit messy.
