I'm sure that like me, many electronics people have had problems with how to store
small numbers of SM parts for development/prototyping use, in such a way that the right
value can be easily found without digging through a box of dog-ends of tape with barely
legible (if any) markings.....
The plastic sheets used in things like SMD Resistor development/lab kit binders are ideal,
but these seem to be unobtainable seperately. I even investigated the possibility of
getting some made, but tooling costs were pretty high.
However I chanced upon something that is the next best thing - at a photographic store, I
found some plastic binder pages used for storing 35mm negative strips. Although the
pockets are somewhat wider than ideal, they are cheap and readily available, and make a
pretty good solution to the problem of storing small quantities of many different SMD
parts in strips of tape.
The ones I used were from Jessops (UK) - UKP4.49
for 25 sheets, each having 5x2 pockets. ref. JES35NS4A
For shorter strips of parts, plastic pocket-sheets for kids' trading/baseball cards may
