Re: (ET) Broken again - ziploc bags and digital pictures - other ideas anyone ?
Thank you to the many guys (David Roden & others) who have made me feel less
I get many projects done in only a week ... of total days ... but, those 5
to 7 days are spread far apart ... over many years ... <grin>
I buy my ziploc bags in the 1000 pack now ... (3*5 size for small parts,
resistors, capacitors, nuts, bolts, etc).
I cut down (1/4" off 1 end & 1 side) 100 3*5 cards at a time to slide inside
the bags, which makes the bags stand up library card file style, in shallow
drawers and stockroom bins ... easy to label & find when it is suddenly a
crisis to fix something ... problem now is that, with many hundreds of bags,
there are too many to go through to find the one(s) that match the project
And I now also take digital pictures of things such as Comuta-Car dash panel
& contactor wiring, Elec-Trak wiring, etc.
Any one else have suggestions for keeping all the projects juggling at the
same time ?

Almost everything gets done eventually, but it often takes years. By that
time sometimes I've lost the hardware and have to go out and buy new.
Somewhere in my garage the gremlins have a huge stash of ziplock bags with
rusty nuts and bolts in them, and they're hiding in the corners laughing
...In recent years I've been snapping digital photos instead.
That way at least I have some general idea of where to find them.
