    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.

    I was going to say the same thing. not every day you see an 8" floppy holder

    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.
