Re: [BKARTS] Source for modest-cost archival boxes?



Without any commercial motives (really) this reminds me of my youth and
Popular Mechanics magazine where you could make a radio, a table saw,
and of course a power boat in the comfort of your garage. If you can't
find the exact size box you need that's one thing but why kill all that
quality time scrounging for materials, straight edges, tools and the
like to save fifteen bucks or less for a high quality ready made box
available from a number of fine suppliers (including us :) )
