LMB 365 – Day 134

All neat and tidy on day 134 of #LMB365. They look like they could be scientific samples waiting to be used, but these are storage tubes for different size drill bits, all carefully arranged in the LMB’s Technical Instrumentation Workshop. There are thousands of different sizes – imperial, metric, number and letter and the workshop get through a huge amount of drill bits, hence the well organised and labelled spares. Storing the drill bits in tubes was devised way back in the 1970s and each successive Head of the Workshop has inherited and carried on with the tradition.
