Hey thanks for the TIP, jdee! Doh.
Why didn't I think of that??
Here's what I did (like you): I put my Harmony tips in with the appropriate nickel tips...and put all the cables, and endcaps into the clear plastic case! They are all coiled up in those single 6 hole plastic pages. I may slice off the 1/2" where the holes are.
I kinda loaded up on nickel tips a while back...got 3 sets of my most frequently used tips...6,7,8,9.
My cable count is: 12 sets of 24", 4 sets of 32", 2 sets of 40", 1 set each of the 47" & 60"...and all the end caps to go with. They took up a lot of the room in the black binder, even all coiled up in the sleeve pages.
At this point, the black binder has all the tips
AND the plastic case has all the cables and end-caps
I like the system now. The plastic case came to the rescue afterall. I don't mind them being separate. If I travel, I will just load what I need into either the black binder, or the plastic case, and GO!
Now, my next dilemma: I bought all the fixed 16" Harmony circs...they are in transit...but...I will put those in with all my other fixed wood & bamboo circs. I got a couple neat circ needle cases a while back...and I store my wood and bamboo circs in one, and my Addis and Susan Bates in another. I like some of my old timey Susan Bates aluminum circs. A size 6 worked just right for my BORGHILD sweater set recently. Not too pointy, not too blunt.
I also have 3 sets of vintage vinyl circs (They're pink. Maybe some of you remember them.) I'm sentimental, I guess.
