Resistor Storage - Office Type

About: Since I was 6 years I have disassembled old video players and built them in to something new, to the joy and frustration of my parents! I was 13 when I got my first car and 14 when I got my second.

Intro: Resistor Storage - Office Type

A while ago I bought a big lot with lot of resistors, ic's and other electronic components. I looked around for a good resistor storage solution but could not really find one. So I decided to make my own system. The resistors are stored in business card holder and put inside a binder. I paid like 100 NOK witch is something like 16 USD. I got 10 "pages" with 10 holders. the first page is for resistors with 1 -1,1-1,2-1,3-1,5 etc. look at the picture to see how they are organised.. look at the 3rd picture and read the text in the box in the top left corner - it is the same for all the folders. page 2 is the same but instead of 1.0 we have 2.0!

please do NOT hesitate to ask if you don't get the system, I'll do my best to answer. 

I hope someone else also find this usable and might help someone organize their resistors ;)

    Thanks for the awesome idea. Today I bought a binder and 20 plastic pages (for business cards) and each page has 8 pockets.

    I made the resistance labels using a Dymo printer.

    Thanks, I was looking to take the above one step further, and have given up on trying to weld together custom pockets. I want to mix what you have done other sized pockets but coil albumn pockets seem too expensive no matter where I look. carpet underlay cut to size as interpage protection. I am now looking for cheap sources from which to order the plastic pockets, how much did you pay for ur albumn pages ?

    I was looking for a way to store mine and I'll try this one for sure. Mom bought me 25,000 of them

    Cool! Really important to have a good system when you have 25k ! If not you'll never find the right resistor :-)

    Nicely done, thank you for posting such a simple way to store resistors. I'll defiantly adapt this idea to store my resistors.
