    Default WTB: Plastic storage box for 8 inch floppy disks

    I had one at one time, but cannot find it.

    Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase a plastic storage box for 8 inch floppy disks?

    TIA!

    If only you could take some of the empty space out of their atoms and shrink them to 5¼" size... I have several of that size.

    Do you have a Container Store® near you?

    If not, Sterilite probably makes something close enough. Wal-Mart generally carries a good selection of those.

    Ya', but $50 shipped is kinda dear.

    I've got a 5¼" and a 3½" case, both of which are more than twice as large as that 8" case, that I'd ship anywhere domestically for $35.

    Check with the military. I read where they are getting rid of the nuclear launch systems that still use 8" disks

    I had one of the flip-top ones (still have them for 5.25"), but got rid of it after it slammed down a couple of times on my fingers. Darned thing was dangerous. I keep my 8" disks in a special filing cabinet that I made for them. If you're handy with woodworking, you might consider doing that yourself.

    I might have one for you but would need to be shipped from the Netherlands (would be around 25 euro's shipping, paypal gift payment, regular paypal would be more because of fees).
