How do you store your bare pcb?

Postby Mokum » November 16th, 2016, 4:28 pm

I was told there were black boxes with some foam in them that would cost around 10 euros each. Anyone got what I mean?
What solution have you picked for your bare pcb's?
Just bubble wrap them? Custom boxes?
Share what you've got ;)

Since I work for an IT company, we have plenty of these: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/23 ... 25e535.jpg

So, every PCB has a seperate cardboard box, and inside PCBs are double bubble wrapped.

All my games are hidden in a cupboard with a bit of bubble wrap and in cheap cartonboxes (mostly in the ones the games were sent to me). Cave games in shockboxes. I don’t wanna waste too much money for game storrage. :roll:

Corstat boxes with anti-static foam inside. Bought from Farnell. Here's the specs: http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/100451.pdf

I use 3 different sized boxes. One for CAVE CV1000, one for pre CV1000 CAVE boards & Raizing/Toaplan and one for larger PCB:s like Tatusjin & Out Zone.

Models I use:
CAVE CV1000 / small size model: 3230-6
PGM/Raizing/Toaplan / medium size model: 3320-8
Large size model: 3500-10

Thanks! :awe:

I made the labels pretty quick from artwork found on the Internet, just to be able to find the game I want to play quick and easy.
Labels are printed on regular paper, laminated and then cut out with a guillotine paper cutter.

I only own 1 PCB now but this is how I used to store them. In an anti-static bag in a box. They're more resilient than you think.

Let's see... My G-Net is sitting inside my Pony, naked and straddling the Type-X case I use for MAME.

TNZS is in an anti-static bubble bag and foam lined box in a cupboard.

I have a Naomi CF + Sega JVSJAMMA setup on a removable Egret sized wooden board, and a similar board for my TvC but with a Taito JVSJAMMA. These are naked on top of a wardrobe at the moment as it's the safest place I have room for them...
