These are too short for some things though. A point in case being fretsaw blades – too long for most boxes but too fine even in quantity to fill a decent sized container.
I used to use a plastic toothbrush container but after a lot of years in the drawer this had finally given up the ghost. Suggestions on various e-mail lists ranged around Bill Clinton’s favourite toy, the cigar tube. Since I don’t smoke the chances of finding something suitable were limited.
A trip into Muji last week supplied me with just the thing. An aluminium pencil case. Achingly trendy and not a hint of tobacco in sight.
I might need to look at the supply of tobacco tins though.
