    Metalworking files storage/Tool protection 2 :cardboard tube

    Metalworking files storage/Tool protection 2 :cardboard tube-image.jpg

    I protect most of my files with cardboard tubes (or inner tubes)

    Inside a bigger plastic tube at eye height. Type is shown drawn on the end of the handle. (They do not project far enough to bang my head)

    In a rack for the most frequently used

    Or in reserve, in box tubes

    You may notice the key Iíve drawn on the side of the drawer, to remind me which tube contains which type of file.
