Regarding securing the case halves together, one idea I've considered (but haven't tried yet) is using a self-tapping screw of the appropriate size. The two top posts have holes in their center through which the screw can follow. The screw head would need to fit the recess in the bottom case. That should secure the halves together and still let you open the case for repair if needed.

Sounds good. I found a local Ace Hardware that stocks miniature #0 and #00 1/8" screws, one of which which should be about the right size. I'll post after I've had a chance to try it (probably in a couple of days).

Thanks again to all the people who replied. I entered college in 1972 at almost exactly the same time the HP-35 was released, and it was the hot status symbol for a few rich kids (not me) whose parents could afford the price (about $2000 in today's dollars). My 32S feels like an old friend, and I really wanted to avoid having to replace it. I'm disappointed that RPN never caught on, as I find it much more intuitive than algebraic entry.
