  • Ikea expedit

    Back on this again, but I’ve noticed the 149x149 versions have come down to £69. Or was I looking at the larger version price before?

    The specs say max load/shelf 13kg. Does anyone know if this means the entire shelf or each cube?

    Also, I donÂ’t suppose anyoneÂ’s done the math to work out how many records equal 13kg, or 28.5lbs?

    both llmod1 and i have packed 4x4 and 5x5 expedits to the absolute max without anything breaking. they're super-sturdy.

    the only thing to worry about is whether your floor can take the weight!

        Expedits are great until you want to move....pain in the ass to take apart.

        Nick you wanna make some cubes mate. I've nearly finished my write up on how to make them.

          22kg is about 100 records in one of those softcase thingies - so 13kg is probably about 75 / 80?

          Not to shun Sermad&#39;s mighty erections, but B&amp;Q do a cheap pine cube thingummy in 1x1 1x2 and 2x2 flavours

            Since we&#39;re talking storage - what do people do with sevens?

              I want them all to go against one wall. The room isn&#39;t that big and has to house some kind of sofa bed at some point. And 69 quid over a year or more is nothing, I&#39;ll leave the damn thing there of need be and buy another...&#33;

                Those wooden schweppes lemo bottle crates are ace but sooooo scarce these days.

                Shoeboxes are the next best thing that I have found (and just about stackable if you&#39;re careful)

                  I&#39;ll use those Ikea Kassett boxes which are ment to DVDs or VHSs. Those are available in white and dark grey.

                    The only problem I have with the Expedit is that they keep changing the colours and I can never find a store that has them in stock. I now have two full Expedits of different colours. I need a third but the colour clash could be too much&#33;

                      i&#39;ve been stacking up the &quot;sermad&quot; cubes (OG MK1 version) for weeks now, 4 high at a time. i reckon they&#39;re just as good as the &quot;deconomix&quot; DJ storage unit i paid serious hard-earned for. very sturdy. the dimensions are nice also if you&#39;re into using use those heavy-duty PVC covers.



                      i was going to ask about storing 45s - i don&#39;t have loads of them but storing them nicely to flick through is a bother. i should be looking out some shoe boxes.

                        Hello all -

                        Can I recommend for the storage of 45&#39;s Muji&#39;s collapsable canvas boxes, the largest can fit two rows of 7&#39;s. Muji freezer bags also make great 45 carriers, you can also keep your beer cool at the same time. Habitat did some great clear and coloured perspex boxes some time ago which were fantastic for storing and displaying your sevens. Unfortunately I do not think they are available now.

                        see you at Brillo  - bring fourth Jim

                          does anyone know if there's a smaller version of the expedit available at Ikea? I could swear I saw a bookshelf that was roughly half the size of the expedit and perfect for housing records and turntables. if there is one available i'm guessing it's only available outside of the US. i'm running out of room for my rekkids again .

                            Expedites are the best for holding records, big and sturdy. Several people on soulstrut have said they've taken theirs apart as well, moved, and put them back togethe with no problem. Imoved into a flat on the second floor. Had professional movers move it and they didn't even take it apart. Just hauled it up the stairs with a turn even, no problem. Thank god for professionals!

                              I have seen an expedit that was 4 x 4 as opposed to 5 x 5; but it wasn't half size. It was also a white colour, (bleccchhh!! )
