Rolodex Rotatory Card Contact Files Still A Great Office Tool
Here's Mine .... Very Handy!
In the age of electronics some paper based office supplies still stand out. The Rolodex rotary card file comes to mind. Rolodex has spawned many different product lines but the eponymous rotary card file still hangs in there.
The one I use is black and has a great look to it. I like the look because it fits very well in an elegant office setting, but also can fit seamlessly into a garage or factory setting as well. I posted pictures of my Rolodex.
The Rolodex does not take up a lot of space. By my rough measurements using a tape measure, the 'foot print' of this rotary card file is about 7" all around (height, width and depth). It fits well on any size desk top.
The performance of the Rolodex card
file is always reliable. It is light weight and easy to move around
your desk if you need to do so.
Very sturdy design and can take a lot of abuse.
The A to Z cards are easy to file. The A to Z cards are large enough that you get a decent amount of contact information on them and still be easy to read.
The Rolodex rotates easy by using either the left or right knob. You can really spin the cards to get to your contacts very easily and quickly.
My only complaint with the Rolodex is that over a long period of time, the card begins to soften in the area where it 'latches' to the Rolodex. When I spin the left or right knob, occasionally an old, old card will fly out. This is easy to remedy by just drafting a new card which is naturally more sturdy from lack of use.
Here's Mine Again .... Love It!
