Eric- Once again we are at a similiar point in our hobby. I, too, find a need to better orginize my tubes. Instead of by sets as ordered now I want tube diameter to be the first category.
LiveWire- I guess I'm a super cool guy finially! Here in the NE basements can be damp. I just picked up some LPS-3. It seems to not solvent the sharpie too well. For now I'll clean off the very end of a tube, wrap some masking tape around it and mark on that before I coat the rest with the LPS.
I use to keep my braze ones in small cardboard boxes that 35mm slides came in, they in turn were boxed 12 to a larger box. As the collection got wider over time I have had to combine differing types in the same small boxes. Not a problem if hater bosses are with top tube guides, but now I have, maybe, 8 kinds of water bosses or 15 cable guides styles. I'm tired of going through the big boxes (as they slowly fall apart at the seams) just to find out it's the next box that has the large lipped bosses or single bullit stops... So I ordered some plastic orginizor bins from Enco, the king that Wheels uses for their cones or cable assortments. This way i can add to my capicity and keep the bin's form/shape the same in the future. Andy.
