Lol, indeed! Pusherman, what is the exact product name of the trays that are in the 9 liter box you show in the pic? I can't seem to find the trays for the 9 liter box.
Perhaps you could send me a link to the actual tray product page?
Thanks!
Just so happens I purchased a few 20 and 9 liter boxes along with a couple trays earlier this morning. Link to the trays for the 9 liter box:

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 11 Months ago


Those look great! I'm looking for more storage now since they stopping producing those 7drawer Sterilite carts (for comparison  www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=view&catid=3&id=33905). I even called Sterilite, and they confirmed that they are no longer making them.
Are the ones you got the "Strong White" ones? Do you think the "regular" one would be strong enough to hold the DF?
And it sounds like there's about ~3.5 sets per box  do you find that that is too hard for you to carry by yourself? It doesn't look like there are wheels, so I'm wondering if I'd be able to lug them to the car and back without help if they are too bulky.

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 11 Months ago


Yes the ones i have are the 'strong white' ones i think the normal ones would be fine as well though.
The boxes are fine to lift, just try lifting 3 boxes of DF and that is roughly the weight, ive recently got some more prepped for the ice caverns set and woodlands sets :)





Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 11 Months ago


Cool  thanks! I'll have to try getting some of those boxes...

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 11 Months ago


I emailed sterilite and the response was that these:
Sterilite 6 Craft Cart
were the replacement for that model. The customer service rep said in the email that they were the same minus one drawer except "...tinted in 3 colors however, and are open at the top, rather than closed drawer cases". Has anybody seen these?





Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 7 Months ago


Hi Folks,
Has anyone had any issues with transporting their DF collection in the "normal" strength version of these 20litre really usefull boxes.
The "white extra strong" are of course more costly, and it would be nice to bable to see into the box I think to help with sorting. But then as I have to move /carry my collection to gaming locations, I don't wish to risk damage for the sake of a few pounds.
Cheers

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 5 Months ago


I picked up a standard version of the 20ltr tray.
And it holds;
1x Room and passage.
1x Room set.
1x Trapset 2.
The only 'double layering' I have had to do is, the 5 tonne blocks and doors.
I have lined the bottom of the box with anti slip mat, material. A foam mesh.
It prevents the pieces sliding around, as I have to tip the boxes to get them into their storage shelf.
The normal box appears to be able to cope with the weight of these sets without issue. The bottom does flex slightly. But nothing serious.
So if you cannot locate the stiff white boxes. Then I am fairly confident the normal transparent boxes will cope adequately.
If however you are using these boxes to post your DF and transport it via couriers etc, then I would either choose to repack them into their original boxes, as I have mine. Or use the white boxes. As an international move or major relocation is not on the cards for me at the moment. I am happy to now starting picking up a few more of the normal version of the boxes to store my sets, for transport to and from my gaming locations and the club.
I found the three sets is just about right weight wise to. I know the cavenerous passage and caves pieces are pretty heavy and weight more than the mastermaze room pieces and corridor pieces. So when I get the next box, I will try and see how it handles these. But I believe it should be fine.
If you do get these boxes and like me, have to transport your DF too and from your house to games, then definitely invest in some antislip matting for the bottom.

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 5 Months ago


Thats a good idea to use antislip matting i'll have to get some.
I wouldn't trust any courier or Removal company with these boxes either, definetly repack them in their original boxes.
The cavern sets are a bit larger and I can only fit 2 of them in a box, so the weight is about the same.





Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 5 Months ago


Cheers. I was wondering how many cave sets a box would take.
The anti slip is handy. it gives a bit of cushioning, and of course, stops the pieces slidding about. If you have to tip/angle the boxes to get them into/out of cars etc or onto shelves, it should save them moving into each other.
A local discount shop sells the anti slip mat for £1 for 150cm x 30cm. If you place it in strips across the box. Each roll is precisely doing two boxes, which is handy. :)
I used some off cuts from another part roll to cut squares to place under some of the very few doubled layer pieces,, ie the 5 tonne blocks, as they don't have felt on the bases and would scratch the pieces below otherwise.
I wish the boxes were cheaper, but they do fit nicely and the secure lids are handy and they stack well. So will defenitely be moving my collection over to these in the future and some of the 9 litre boxes.

Re:Storage of DF 2 Years, 5 Months ago


Just taken delivery of five more of the standard 20ltr boxes today. :)
I have a big club gaming show coming up, and planning to run a large Dwarven Forge Dungeon bash for two days.
So decided my 30 sets would take up too much space for the car.
I now have a 6 of the normal 20ltr boxes and some 30ltr ones (i started using years ago) by another maker. I know I will still need a few more to get the entire lot into boxes.
But they stack very nicely and I just noted, they do a wheel trolley set for the boxes. Pricey, but could be handy to avoid having to carry them! :) lol
The anti slip mat, works a treat. My first box has been to the club and back a couple of times now in the boot of the car without any troubles.
I just need to get a seperate box for storing the doors etc.
