Storage ideas
« on: November 13, 2021, 04:36:23 PM »
Can you guys show/tell me what you use to store all your parts? Resistors, caps, etc. I had used plastic shelves with the tiny cubbies in them, but I just don't have the room for them any longer.

Nested ziplock bags work for me. 2.5 gallon are the biggest, then quart, and then smaller an smaller.. One for resistors, one for caps, one for wire, etc. It's easy to see what's what and to sling them out and back in. The slider type are excellent

This, except I have a storage bin like this with drawers.

Cut down cardboard, magazine holders from Ikea to hold small labelled ziplocs, pack hundreds of resistors and caps into very little space.

Here is what I ended up with. Not a solution for all of my parts, but it keeps my work bench cleaner since I don't have the room for my larger drawers any longer.
