Subject: Storage cases available

Storage cases available

There will shortly be made available, free, "to a good home" 8
heavy-gauge steel storage cases for rolled-up drawings (and other
things that can be rolled up without damaging them), made a *long*
time ago by "Hamilton Manufacturing Company", of Twin Falls,

Dimensions of cases:
    Height      Width          Depth
    15 1/2"     55 /14"         44 1/2"

Drawers: 130: 5 high  X 26 wide
Dimensions of drawers:
    Height      Width          Depth
    1 3/4"      1 3/4"         43"

Made of: steel:  1/32" thick, enameled gray.

In excellent condition. As far as I know, no one in the world makes
storage cases like these--with pull-out drawers--for rolled-up
drawings.  They are in almost perfect condition.  I am letting you
folks know this because these storage cases are unique, and would be
perfect storage cases for people who need something in which to
store rolled-up drawings, or other items.  These cases are much
better than the rather unsatisfactory storage cases made nowadays to
store rolled-up drawings.

(Hamilton Manufacturing Company no longer makes these cases--if the
company doing business under that name is the company that actually
used to make these wonderful storage cases.)

These 8 storage cases are now surplus.  They are the property of the
California Department of Transportation, and will be offered first
to state agencies here in California.  Storage cases left unclaimed
by state agencies will next be offered to non-profit, tax-exempt
organizations that qualify to be on a list.  I am sending this
notice out so that you will have a chance to acquire these unique,
very useful storage cases for your organization.  You will need to
fill out a 10-page form.  I was told that not all non-profit,
tax-exempt organizations will qualify to be on this list.  It is
worth your while to try to be placed on this list, because such
organizations that qualify will be allowed to acquire items before
the general public is allowed to take them.  If your organization
does *not* qualify, you can still go to the site with the general
public, and have a chance to get some very useful, unique storage

Surplus Property list, please contact:

I have no idea how long it takes to get onto the official surplus
list, but it is well worth the effort.  I also have no idea whether
or not anyone in any state department would have any use for these
cases.  I just wanted to let all of you know that these wonderful
cases will be available to qualifying organizations after a while,
so that you would have a chance to get the paperwork done in time to
qualify to acquire these cases before they are offered to the
general public.
