    What’s the deal with the “dubbing box”? Looks neat. I’ve never seen anything like it.

      Thanks. Dubbing is conveniently packed in one of these handy, 12-compartmental practical boxes. They are great space savers. The box itself has been designed with side-openings and it provides easy access to dubbing from both sides. Re-filling the compartments is easy – simply push the dab of dubbing inside with a pointy tool or a pen.
      These dispensers keep your work bench clean and tidy.
