  1. I saw a really nice holder for ICs today, but it was at an auction for
    a company that went out of business - so no way to find out where they
    got it!

    It was a small bench top plastic cabinet, maybe 6" wide, 12" high,
    4-5" deep. It had about 20 drawers in it, each of which was on .5"
    high at most, and they were lined with anti-static foam. It was an IC
    holder. I would love to buy one, as it would be perfect to sit on my
    bench and would end the problem of storing ICs in anti-static bags in
    big bulky bins.

    The problem is, I can't find one, anywhere on line. Does anyone have
    one or have a source for one?

    Thanks very much!

    Have you tried a hardware store (for the drawers anyway) Home depot or
    Loews might have them. In Canada, I've seen them at Canadian Tire. They
    are sort of a snap together design. You buy as may drawers as you want and
    just snap them together to form a set of drawers as big as you want.

    It sounds like the bin that those resistor assortments used to
    come in, but the compartments in those were very small -
    maybe 1/2" wide, to hold maybe 50-100 resistors. They're
    not cheap, since you have to buy about a thousand assorted
    resistors to get one, but it's a start.

    Another thing that pops to mind is Akro-Mils, or any of
    the makers of those style of things. Go to a store and
    get some brand names to search on.

    Good Luck!
