    Component storage from old floppies

    Hi guys. First post here we come (after having the morning vanish into a pit of home made tool viewing).

    Its a build log of a component organised/storage caddy type thing, I made for electronic components.

    Upcycled Component Organiser



    Cheers for now,
    Bongodrummer

    Cool idea! I may take this and run with it. I will try using an acrylic glue rather then the zip ties. Make a buck to clamp the floppies to and it should go pretty quick.
    Thanks!

    Hi kbalch,

    Thanks for adding it I notice you have created a new builder profile for me as well... Only thing is I'm the same person as the 'bongodrummer' that already existed AND the 'Flowering Elbow' builder too (Flowering Elbow is a social enterprise and website I setup).
    Any chance of you merging the 3 of them back to one profile?
    Cheers,
    B.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the confusion regarding your various usernames. On Instructables, you're listed as "Bongodrummer", while you signed up on HomemadeTools.net as "bongodrummer". To our case-senstive system, those appear as two different individuals. Flowering Elbow is, of course, a third.

    I've changed our listings for all three sites to "bongodrummer". Hope that helps.

    Ken

    Interesting use for 3.5 inchers. I remember when I carried around boxes of these on a daily basis. Now we're on MicroSDs.

    Likewise. Heck, I can remember handing in programming assignments in a shoebox (full of punch cards). 8" floppies were a step up...
