legoman19892 posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionI did an A3 report of sorting and storing my LEGO. Eliminated rework and did some visual management as a result. Anyone else do this to lessen sort time? What is an A3?: https://quality-one.com/a3/
Deathleech posted a topic in General LEGO DiscussionThe title says it all. I searched for a topic like this but was unable to find anything. I am wondering if leaving Lego pieces/sets assembled causes them to lose their clutch power over time? If so, does it come back when you take them apart? Currently I have all my LotR and Hobbit sets assembled and displayed in glass cabinets. I have all of my Lego minifigures lined up on base plates and stored in containers. I keep them all assembled because I am anal and worried they will get scratched up if I just throw them all in a tub together, or break them down and store them by parts in a jumbled mess. At the same time though, I noticed on the minifigures especially that they seem to be losing a lot of clutch power in their feet where they are connected to the base plates. This makes me wonder if all the pieces are losing it being assembled for extended periods of time.
In my efforts to "Get organized and build more" I am considering how to store bricks. I just received a medium to large BL order (about 600 bricks, maybe not a large order) that I bought for a future project. After verifying the contents I need to store the bricks (1x1, 1x2, 1x4), Will the bricks degrade faster over time if stored "in-click" in stacks? Thanks, Andy D
