    I keep all my small stock in two stacks of six of those trays, and I have a twelve tray rack that I use for a variety of things - everything solder in one, wire spools in another... I traipsed around all those used office equipment shops in the nineties looking for more, but I suppose I was too late.

    Oh, and if I have to get some stock out of the bottom tray from my pile, I can tell you that gravity is switched on in my area, and is working to spec.
    Another blast from the past:
