Re: Has anyone bought this inexpensive aluminum chip case?
I had one of those 1000-chip cases (sold it with 1000 chips), and I also have the identical 750-chip model. As others have said, I don't recommend carrying around 1000 chips in a single case - the weight is simply too much stress on the design.
All of my 750-chip cases have held up well (I also have two others, different design, same handle), but that's about the maximum I'd feel safe with, long-term. If you need carry storage for 1000 chips, either get a birdcage or go with two 500-chip cases.
