Also, I was talking to them about posters and acid and all that. They said stay away from wood. They recommended Mayline Museum Flat Files

The down side is it would have to be shipped by truck. But at least no taxes.

Wow, that place really has good deals. I have no room in my house, I think I would have to build a new room just to house flat files in. It is sad. I collect too much junk.

I'll have to check prices at work for you guys. I went to the drafting site and I'm pretty certain we deal with the Safco people and there's probably some others. If anybody has a size requirement or brand/model number I'd be happy to check the prices. I don't know how good a discount we get from any of these people but I'd be willing to check.
