Our old Alesis HD24 drive boxes, repurposed!

Like everyone everywhere, who needs to ship CD's and cassettes and thumb drives and all the ever-changing media container formats that run our lives (although I guess I am way behind the curve, because as I understand it everyone everywhere is just uploading files), finding the exactly right cardboard box for the job is not always instantaneous-- sometimes you need to modify boxes that you've got and it turns into real arts and crafts time.

Lo/behold, what should be utterly perfect for a DVD in a case & a couple jewel boxes & and the awkwardly taped thumb-drive-to-a-strip-of-cardboard-- just the complement of what you're sending everyone as the documentation of their performance-- but an old HD24 box that the drive housings came in!

I don't mean perfect, I mean precisely engineered, slick and the ultimate in consumer friendly. Do you think I might still be able to order these, somewhere.....?......

Just call a box company and tell them the dimensions. Depending on how many you need it may justify them setting up and running you a quantity. Or they can tack them on to someone else's bigger order for cheap. Get some labels printed and make it look pro.

This could have been purpose made for the job....the clear plastic lid of most of our local 1kg yoghurt pots are a perfect fit (push-on, no wobble, no escape) for a CD. Protects the readable side, and it's great to recycle/repurpose when it's such a lucky match !

It's like the Apollo 13 movie, throw enough disparate crap together on a table, impose a time limit and some smartass will find a use for it, join the dots, save the mission, etc
