    Default Need a good method to store your vinyl?

    http://www.music123.com/Eurolite-LPX...74190.Music123

    For me, this was the answer. Had been keeping mine stored on a bookshelf, but found it a PITA trying to read the fine print on the spine. My peepers ain't what they used to be. These allow me to flip through and see the front cover easy.

    Living in Hawaii has it's disadvantages sometimes. Tried getting these from other merchants on amazon and ebay. Greedy suckers want to charge anywhere between 40.00 - 60.00 bucks just on freight per case.

    Anyway, on sale @ music123. 24.99 right now. I ordered 3 on two separate occasions and total shipping for all 6 was just under 26.00 Priority Mail. I ordered by phone and gotta say their customer service is top notch. :)

    Now that is a cool way to store vinyl. I believe you can also find them in DJ shops.

    Yeah, but over here they are insanely expensive as well. 70.00 local was the cheapest I could find on a similar case. What's nice about these is that they're stackable.

    I store them the way I have for 40+ years. Milk crates:

    Some of the crates I have may have come over on the Mayflower...long before Walmart or Targert invaded the suburbs. I used many of them in college...and I stole them from the local grocery store where a friend of mine worked. Damn near indestructable. They will probably still be around long after I'm gone.

    I wouldn't buy any of those cheap "retail" fakes. I think you can still find the real ones at the grocery store. If you don't want to steal them...your can still find commercial grade crates for not much more than the cheap knock-offs.

    Those are hardcore cases Mike!

    Doug (dkg999) had some of these and picked up a few for me from The Container Store.

    They are not industrial strength, but are deeper so the LP's dont stick out the top. They are stackable.

    70 easy...shack that's a cool idea to. What I like about these is that I can stack em' also. I filled up all 6 and already know I'm going to need more. Still have about fiddy or so albums on the shelf and more coming. Rich, those look ideal also for stacking. Cheaper to, I'm going to look into those. Thanks again bro.

    The old milk crates that I use for lp storage, never had pasteurized milk in them.

    I like to store my vinyl flat. Pulling them out is not as easy as vertical and putting them back is not as easy either, but the engineer in me says the soft plastic discs will creep over time. Creep = a warp. Believe it or not, concrete is known to creep and it is much more rigid than vinyl.

    LPs are thin walled material made out inherently soft material. Gravity works against things comprised of that nature when placed on their weak (edge) axis. The album covers have too much give to avoid creep from happening.

    My 2 cents.

    With no disrespect but that is totally against all recommended ways of storing LPs. Storing records flat in fact causes warping. Why? The labels are slightly raised on either side of the LP so the record is not truly flat when placed horizontally and gravity over time causes the outer edges to bend toward the center of the earth. Much less harm is caused by vertical storage. All official archivists of vinyl records recommend vertical storage.

    That's interesting. I haven't played any for years, but have kept all of them. The point about raised artwork creating a nonflat surface is well taken. I'll have to pull some out and do a planar eyeball scan to see what, if any, damage has been done. Stay tuned!

    I have a couple of the initially mentioned boxes. I don't like them because the corners are not square and care has to be taken to keep the record from being flexed. I used a couple pieces of cardboard and all was well but I still don't like them. Mine look the same but are not stackable. My records are all on a shelf now, they are much happier that way. Oh, and shack (or others reading this) the top of your crates are just barely high enough. If they were even an inch lower all your records would be warped. You want the weight (if any) at the very top of the LP. I lost quite a collection to this.
