to be a decent paying job for a "box boy".
Back in the day when in the service, I used to order parts and used their FSN and later the NSN #'s to get it. Everything had a manual and a parts list to order form. I would order say a transister, it would come packed in a shipped box->open to find foam or wrapped brown paper->sealed vacuum bag->part in its own box or protected form/blister->remove all then unwrap or remove from minor blister bubble. Of course, its done this way as the parts may sit on a shelf for eons before ordered and may further not be manufactured again or available on the open market. It never ceased to amaze me that a 1oz. item(maybe less), used 1-3lbs of shipping material and self-protection to get to my desk.
Now, I look at my newly brought ink cart and wonder if the same people work for them. adios -----Willy
