Best Storage of magnetic dies

Post by Katherine »

Good Day everyone-

I am looking for ideas on best practices for the storage of magnetic dies, in between uses.

Currently we have vertical hanging folders and place the dies in envelopes which are stored in the hanging file folders.
We are also getting frequent signs of rust on the backs of the magnetic dies as well as occasional edge lifting.

Does anyone have suggestions for maintaining mag. dies best, and storing for optimal life?
Thanks!

Katherine

Ours were small and they fit in a metal filing cabinet

Thanks - we started out that way as well, but we have too many now.

Thank you for the storage recommendations everyone. :smile:

Does anyone have any recommendations for treating dies before they are filed, to prevent rusting?
We used to use a silicone spray, but there were apparently health concerns raised over using it...I need to reasearch further, but if anyone has any other best practices, please share.

Thank you
