I melt my dividers in place.
Wow. I never tried the phrase "SMT component box" on eBay. I tried variants on box, case, snap, etc. It wasn't until I used "SMT" that I found them in bulk. Thanks.QuoteI melt my dividers in place. Good idea...
A related question: what do you do when you order a cut-reel of something? For example, when I order 100 SMD resistors, they are cut-reel, meaning I get a paper strip (sometimes plastic strip for things like capacitors or some Atmels). So what do you do? Do you take them out and put them in the respective bin? Do you leave them in the strip and just roll the thing up tight to fit in the bin, or cut to fit the bin.I get a lot of SMD stuff like that come to think of it. I think Jameco was the only one that once, and only once, had send me a little baggie with 100 capacitors in it. Everything else is in cut-reel form.I'm a bit reluctant to take some things out of the strip, like especially stuff which come with a big anti-static sticker and warning on them. I'm more comfortable leaving them as is and just roll the thing up into the bin - or I will cut them to the longest size of the bin and put them in that way so I don't have to roll them.What do you do?
