I have storage spaces in two cities/countries
Plastic prevents mildew/fungus/moisture
Closes better and throw some of those thingies for clothes and moisture and you're good to go

Could really do with Meccano still being around so I could create storage units.Was thinking this especially with external hard drives which overheat when stacked. So would benefit from a cage system where they were separated.But could see similar frameworks being useful for other item storage.Bunging something together in wood might get one part of the way there too.

Not sure why but it’s hard for me to go backwards in their catalogue from that point. The production is just so lousy and thin and a lot of the melodies and tropes are undistinguished.

Rheem Bennett Displacement Meter at Deer Hollow Farm at Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve in CaliforniaThe company is named for its founders, brothers Richard "R. S." Rheem and Donald "D. L." Rheem. They were the sons of William S. Rheem (1862–1919), former Standard Oil Company of California president who led the construction of a major oil refinery for the company in Richmond, California. The brothers initially began manufacturing galvanized steel drums in 1925 as a co-partnership with Pacific Galvanizing Company in Emeryville, California. A third brother, William "W.K." Rheem, helped finance the company at its start. The Rheem Manufacturing Company was subsequently organized on January 22, 1930, buying out Pacific Galvanizing. Rheem also acquired the Republic Steel package company, which also had a plant in Richmond. Republic Steel made boilers and tanks, which allowed Rheem to enter the business of water heating. The company acquired the John Wood Manufacturing Company of California, which produced automatic gas storage water heaters, in 1931. The company expanded overseas to Australia in 1936, building a plant in Sydney. The Australian operation began making steel shipping containers, including drums, in 1937 and water heaters in 1939.
