Just picked this Plan Hold cabinet. Top of the cabinet is perfect for flattening prints. Currently using two mylar sleeves with backing to flatten my prints.

Woohoo! picked up a flat file for 100 dollars on CL. I thought CL was worthless after they took out the escort section. I have been proven wrong.

Nice, I scored almost the same jam off of CL for a hundo too.

Snagged another set of 54"x 42"s today offa CL..had to make the HERO RUN over to super ghettoville across the bay to get em...( the grey ones) ... loaded em, hauled em, carried em upstairs, assembled em and cleaned em in 3 hours 37 mites. Im going be sore tomorrow.

Interesting ones they are 'JEBCO' and according to the manufactures marks stenciled on the back made in Georgia in 1967 and sold to Stanford University. They are in basically perfect shape and super industrial strength...550 bucks.

now I got plenty o room to expand........................................

Kozik never shows up when I sell something on Craigslist. My ads only go to The Hills Have Eyes people that show up and ask if I'll take 1/3 of the firm asking price that they emailed me and said they would definitely take 30 seconds after listing it.....also could you please hold it for a week that's the soonest I can make it to pick it up. :lol: :lol:

I love and treasure individuals as I meet them, I loathe and despise the groups they identify with and belong to.

Waiting on a response here for a unit I spotted and can't pass up. Looking at my "work area" actually getting enclosed/defined this year - and that means having room to put in a 2nd "real" file (or if you include the self-made ones, my 5th?) Oy... my drawer situation is going to look like Frank's, just a lot less purty.

Picked up a pair of new files this Friday, and finished setting them up. I got so excited that I even printed out drawer labels.

Because it's the print we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So we'll hunt it.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

Found these on Craigslist for $100. The bottom section had the file cabinet drawers to the side.

After some sanding and paint, Rust-Oleum metallic aged Copper spray paint for the drawers and aged Bronze for the rest, have these!

Wow, that looks freakin' awesome! Nicest flat file I've ever seen - definitely prefer the wood effect. The metal ones always remind me of a cross between school and the hospital. Kinda clinical. Yours literally looks like part of the furniture. Great work! :D
