Has anyone ever seen one of these for sale? It's made from rubber so is nice and heavy and doesn't move around. It's just perfect for sitting on the bench with components in for either assembly or disassembly. The lips are around 3/4" high. I've had this one for longer than I care to remember, and I don't, in fact, remember where I got it from. But I'd like another one for one of my other workshops.

I've seen the jewellery ones on places like eBay but they are too shallow and don't have enough compartments.

#2 Hardware Problem? Read AVR042.

#3 All grounds are not created equal

#4 Have you proved your chip is running at xxMHz?

No, I've never seen one of those, but  I have used lots of these for that "sort" of thing (pun intended).

Our local food supermarket sells whole cooked fried chickens (cut into pieces) in a stiff plastic container box that is about 11 inches by 9 inches by 5 inches (@28x20x12 cm).

After the chicken dinner, I wash out the container well and use it to store an AVR project board, its cables, and its printed documentation.  The boxes get logged, tagged, and stacked by the workbench.  They seal tightly so when they tumble over no little parts fall out into the carpet.

Be careful late at night or eating in the dark....who put all these wires in my sandwich?!!? 

 

For the rubber thingy...take a look at desk drawer organizers.

 

Here is one made from high-density foam ...so it might have a little bulk.

maybe one from solid rubber came from a toolbox or commercial kitchen

 

so you say it flexes & twists slightly---it is not just plastic?  Look on the bottom ...any numbers or info??

 

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

It's definitely not plastic and has the characteristic smell of rubber. The only text is 'Registered Design No 900109' which leads nowhere that I can find.
