    TF-100 Storage Box

    I am looking for a box that will organize and store the reagents in the TF-100 kit in an upright position. Anybody got any ideas?

    Maybe a tackle box or a clear plastic Rubbermaid organizer

    You can rearrange the box so that the speed stirrer fits in-

    Re: TF-100 Storage Box

    I have had a similar question regarding the exact box used. Looks like a Plano brand box, can anyone tell me the number on the box? Or what brand and model it is?

    I can't do it from memory right now but it's printed on the bottom of the box.

    Dave, Thanks for the reply. I have been meaning to call you for weeks about this, no rush.

    Pcool69, sorry for the hijack, any and all suggestions on storage boxes would be of interest to me as well.

    Pcool69,
    I have been exploring Plano products for a more upright storage solution, but haven't found the 'perfect solution' for my use just yet.

    You might find something that meets your needs here.

    Re: TF-100 Storage Box

    I realize this thread is a little old but I wanted to show off my Plano Tackle box. My wife calls it the PoolNerd Box -



    This is what I was able to fit in the 2-drawer model -

    1. K-2006 Kit
    2. Lots of extra 2oz Taylor reagent
    3. SpeedStir
    4. SampleSizer
    5. Taylor K-1001 (DPD) Basic Test Kit
    6. Taylor K-1766 Salt Test
    7. LaMotte Borate Test strips
    8. Mannitol reagents for drop-based borate testing
    9. AquaCheck Phosphate test (stop laughing....)
    10. My written log book...you know, good old paper and pen....
    11. Various test tubes and measuring devices

    I've filled it up pretty well but I plan on acquisitioning the higher range 9058 comparator block to replace the comparator block that came with my K-2006. When I told my wife that Plano offers a customized nameplate to glue on the front for only $2.50, she dryly stated that the divorce papers would accompany it as it would be plainly obvious to any judge that I've lost my mind....honestly, some people just don't understand passion....

    Well, before the tackle box, everything was spread out across 2 to 3 shelves in the mud-room cabinets. So now I have everything in one spot.

    Now I just need to print out and laminate the Taylor K-2006 color-coded test instructions and tape it to the inside of the lid.

    Oh, and I shouldn't forget to order my customized nameplate from Plano

    Re: TF-100 Storage Box

    I took the small OTO and pH test kit out of the TF100 case. I use it daily so I keep it in A&A different place. That made room in the case for my speed stir and sampler.

    Re: TF-100 Storage Box

    After my original Taylor K-2000 case hinge died completely after fifteen years (maybe more), I splurged on a #7120 case from Taylor's web site. Plenty of room for everything. And it has a hard piano hinge that should not wear out in only fifteen years.
