Wham boxes

Post by f8met » Tue Jul 31, 2018 11:24 pm

Does anyone else use the Wham boxes? I get mine from a well know auction site but they do sell them in the Range and I have found them in Home bargains. The Range ones only come in pink!
The one I got from Home bargains was the black one with the removable tray, £2.49! Largest one is £4.99 in the Range.

I tend to keep them for each landowner.

Good idea. Let’s you separate the finds. They look similar to tackle boxes.
I started out keeping finds from individual fields in ice cream tubs. They were all over the place !
During a forced rest from the fields I had a re-think. It’s now similar items in each tub. Amazing how many buckles we collect :D

That's what the Tesco craft / pencil boxes are for.

I use the small boxes for my monthly finds for the club. End of the month they get sorted into the bigger / separate boxes. I like to take all my finds to the club as it shows people that you don't just find good stuff.

I store finds in these also - a large one just for lead items, medium for a variety of better finds, and small ones for particular types etc.
Yes, my buckles got too many for comfort so the not so good harness ones went into the scrap bucket. A refining process. :D

So there's a dilemma, how best to organize finds? By category, field, farm? As long as you know where they came from it doesn't really matter. My finds of note get plotted on my GE and recorded on PAS. Maybe the best bet is to just chuck all the better ones into a display case to be seen and appreciated rather than them just sitting in the dark somewhere? But in the meantime those wham boxes work a treat. ::g

Aahhh don’t be disheartened Junior, the better finds will come. In the meantime, keep the ‘interesting’ finds separate. Un-identified finds especially. It’s surprising how often you’ll be trying to ID one thing and you’ll suddenly spot something you found months, even years ago. I call it a Bingo moment ::g

The Range does a great selection of boxes for finds. We have a store called QD in Bedford and that's good as well. I was in Go Outdoors and I saw a fishing tackle organiser with adjustable sections, when I opened it I realised there where mini boxes inside which were part of the package. The mini boxes are great for the pocket when you in the field, and the main box is doing a nice job of storing part of my collection.
