I am attempting t o organize my metal storage for my classroom and teams, does anyone have a size chart or itemized list of the Vex metal/ Just knowing how many bins to create might be a good place to start.
If anyone has suggestions or pictures please send them.
Generally, the only reason someone is not accepted into the “vex world coaches association” on Facebook, is because they don’t answer all the questions and accept the rules of the group. I would suggest you try again, and be sure to “check all the boxes”
I use bins for my classroom storage, and I teach PLTW Robotics. I have found that the bins are not strong enough to hold a lot of the larger steel parts. I am attempting (poorly) to keep my aluminum VEX V5 structural elements separate from the classroom kits, so I’m putting in pegboard (wallpeg.com) and hanging the elements like this:
I clipped that image from another post in vexforum.
I am using wallpeg recycled plastic pegboards because they are easy to install. I will post photos when we’re done. It’s a mess right now.
To make the pegboard system fit, you need to get the hooks that fit “1/8” holes, and no “safety end”. Heavy-duty hooks are too big for vex metal, and the “safety ball” on alot of hooks don’t fit either. I originally got mine on ebay. Here’s some that are currently available that fit this description: https://www.amazon.com/Board-Hooks-Pegboard-Length-Wholesale/dp/B00IMNQOZC
