    Terry -
    I'm pretty durn sure the issue was not one of using the wrong medium box. The "other" is 8 ½ x 11 x 5 ½", way different.

    The fact that jpfabricator had similar problems lends a bit of credence to my original supposition that their dimensional control isn't too great. The aluminum box would (with a bit of difficulty) slide part way into the flat rate box, then the box would rip at one of the long edges. This happened with two different boxes at the in-store PO. As mentioned, I ended up taping the ripped edge back up. If I'd been at home, I'd have opened the glued seam on the box, wrapped it around the aluminum one, and re-glued (and taped over) the seam. This would at least have concealed the fact that there was a (small) size issue.

    Maybe acquiring the box though mail order would tap into the PO's stock of "good stuff." I do plan to try this next year (or whenever the next pass around happens). Thanks for the tip!

    Hi John! I was only pointing out that there is another way to get the boxes and to get the box sent off again for the folks that get too busy or find it difficult to get to the post office. I do not doubt that there may be some quality control issues from time to time, affecting the finished size of the box. Sorry to hear that you guys had trouble!

    bfd, you can get to the list of people at the link given in the very first post of this thread. I recommend that you read that first post thoroughly if you have not already done so, as it lays out all of the rules and details of this project.

    Terry is correct. I happen to have had both sizes here at the house so just picked the right one. But paid for and printed the label online and had a scheduled pickup at my door. Was easy as pie.

    Jeffers, you have been added to the list.

    dlane, I moved your name to the end of the list for the time being, buying you some time. If you truly prefer to be removed, just let us know.

    I received the box last Friday and finally had chance to go through it tonight, swaped out a few items and will be dropping at the post office in the morning. Here is a picture of the items I kept.

    I'm not in this thing because I'm too new to have much of anything to add, but I thought I'd suggest adding this to the first post. Sounds like really helpful advice to people joining!

    I got the box and pulled out two or three items. I'll be sending the box off as soon as my ordered flat rate boxes get here, local post office didn't have them. I'll post photos when I can.

    All, I must apologize for the delay. I had to order the medium flat rate box, then a family health crisis happened. I think we're out of the woods now, so I hope to get the shipping label on it today and get it out tomorrow, assuming all goes well.

    I've been on the road the last few days and found the box at the post office this afternoon. I need to make a small repair to the box as one of the cover screws got stripped out and the screw was lost. I'll make my selection and addition and send it on it's way by Saturday.

    Hey guys, the hard drive in my PC decided to commit suicide and my phone's abilities are limited. As a result I will not be able to update the spreadsheet at all until the new computer arrives and I set it up next weekend. Autonoz may or may not have the time to address it in the meantime so please have a little patience.

    Thanks!

    Terry, If the hard drive went bad, just get a new one and reload, a day at the most, Most of that is downloading the updates to windows.
    I do enough reloads at work I know. Good luck. Did you have any of your data backed up on a drive or dvds etc.

    'top craft is next on the list but I've had no response from a pm I sent him last week. The log book shows he's had the box before so I'm hoping someone out there might have his mailing address.

    Give him a few more days. If there is no response by this weekend we'll get a moderator to send him an email. If he doesn't respond to that within a few days we will skip to whomever is next on the list and move 'Topcraft to the bottom of the list.

    The old PC is five years old, and it appears that it may be a motherboard or disc controller failure rather than a hard drive crash. That would be a good deal as then recovering files from the old hard drive will be easy. My backup solution has not worked correctly for the last month or two, though I did not know it. So most of my files are there, but not all with the most recent changes. I normally check on my backup from time to time, but it is amazing how time flies and how easy it is to forget to check up on it. As for reloading the hard drive, that is easier said than done when they don't sent installation disks with new PC's anymore.

    I forgot that we only get moderators involved when a person in possession of the box doesn't follow through. We do not force participation through emails from moderators. It has been over a week since an attempt to contact him through a PM or 'Conversation' was made and he has not responded, thus it is time to move on to the next person. 'Topcraft will be skipped for now, but will be added to the list again when he comes back and requests such. This way he does not get excluded, but he is given time to get through whatever life has thrown at him and has him missing in action at present. Hopefully we will see him again in the near future.

    A rule stipulating how this situation gets handled has been added to the first post in this thread. It follows in line with how we have handled this issue in the past.

    So, now that we have the boring administrative drivel out of the way, it looks like it is time for rmack898 to contact the next person on the list, Fitter Bill.

    Terry,

    I'm not interested in getting in the loop on receiving a box of goodies. Bt what I'm interested in is where to send stuff to so it gets added to a box. In fact, I could fill a medium flat rate box with stuff and send. Just need to know where to send.

    Hmmmm - that's a good question, Ken. Never thought about someone wanting to add to the project without also participating in the receiving side. Frankly, I don't have an answer for you, but maybe somebody else would have an idea. We don't want to get a second box started, as that was a nightmare to keep track of. Let's see if someone can come up with a novel idea.
