Forum Title: Flat box hacks
If you want to reduce the weight of a flat box, replace the lid to a different material. The lid of the North Star 10 weighs 320 grams (0.70 pounds). Change to acrylic glass, the weight comes down to 170 grams (0.37). Replace the lid to carbon fiber 2mm, then the weight is 50g (0.11). Carbon fiber is very strong material and weighs only a fraction of the lid (aluminum). All you have to do is take off the lid and measure it up to cut a new lid. Drill two holes for the handle and two for the springs. You will reduce the weight of the box by about 14-25%. You can also change the sides and wheel axle to carbon fiber.
