View Full Version : A4 Reference Chart Storage

29-06-2016, 09:23 AM
Having worked in offices where this kind of A4 quick-reference was used it never occurred to me that lots of people may not be aware that they exist.

A4 sheets are stored in double sided framed clear plastic folders which are easily leafed through to select the required information, the frames can be unclipped and taken to the machine or bench then clipped back in place when finished with, the paper is protected from dirt and damage.

At around 25 for a 10 page unit they aren't cheap but they are brilliant way to store and access tapping charts, drill size equivalent charts, thread identification data etc. in a workshop where "every square inch counts",

Where from Nick ? I can find an all black one on AliExpress for $40, which is 30 since this country has sipped from the poison chalice.

good to know Nick
I'm starting to compile A4 sheets for drill speeds tap sizes etc and was thinking about removing the front cover from a ring binder and screwing the back cover to the wall. This would leave the metal spring rings available to hold doc wallets or punched laminated sheets.
Bit cheaper but not so slick and may not last so long

I can't find the link again for the one in the photo but it was 25 in the UK.
Being able to lift out or replace a single page holder with greasy hands without fumbling and fiddling is fantastic.
Mine were free from the skip, when Kraft closed the Sheffield based Cadbury Customer Contact Centre, I'd never seen them until I joined Cadbury IT Support.

Good Man!
I was almost tempted but have left them alone for someone who doesn't yet have one,
