It works really well for you! :-P That is a good price - for the cost of a bad fast-food meal you get a pile of resistors.
i just got a set of these http://shop.voltelectronics.com.au/30-drawer-unit-parts-cabinet.html except with 20 drawers from my local big w (like walmart) for like $30 reall shoulda bought the online ones above for same price but with extra 10 drawers oh well, theyre working great. one more thing, should i worry about the component legs oxidizing? will putting them in packets help at all? like the little press and seal ones? or should they be fine sitting in the drawers? i have them in the bags right now but i want to know if oxidizing will be a big problem at all without the bags??
Well, it seems people here have many methods of storing parts/components, well I personally use little baggies to separate specific types of components and then I use some large ziplock containers to store them all together, but with bags labelled indivdually (yes... every single little baggie... and yes I can almost say I have no life ).
wowis electronics like your job?
