They're generally for storing cables with plugs on the end, mains
cables, audio cables, etc.
Does anyone know what they're called or where one might buy them?

Slots in what with floppy edges where?

I'm struggling to visualise a floppy slot for inserting things in
Do you not get out much?
Unfortunately not, unless it's to wire something up. :(
It's easy to make one. Take a piece of 3" x 1" timber about 3' long. Drill
a row of holes (5/8" diameter approx) about 1" in from one edge. Cut a
slot from the edge into each hole wide enough to accept your cable sizes.
Hang the whole thing on a wall. Forget the floppy restraints - the cables
will stay in place under their own weight.

Not floppy edges though.
Pink paper would be more realistic.
Now, who was it asking whether someone didn't get out much...?
Yes, and they're "cable management" rather than "cable storage"
systems. I'm looking for the sort of thing I remember having at work
(electronics development) back in the 1960s and 1970s. They were
fixed to the wall and one hung 'scope leads, interconnecting cables,
mains leads, etc. on them.
That's the idea, certainly something like this would be a possibility.
Very true, I may well do this, especially as I have a router which
makes cutting the slots even easier.
Thanks for the ideas everyone.
Everywhere I've worked in use a version of coat hooks for this. There is
(was) a popular system that used a sort of grid that allowed special ones
to be clipped in where needed. Think it may have been Dexion.

To e-mail, change noise into sound.
I know that RS sell something like that (little plastic prongs on a metal
bar) but I could not locate them on their website.
But if Canford did gold plated mains cables they would be genuine BBC
approved gold plated mains cables.
You should see how much they charge for a "doorknob" cable hanger...
I do like the 3U wine rack for 480mm racks.
I'm surprised they don't make a rack-mounting coffee machine. Preferably
a modified Miele.

They are utter shite, nasty construction, stupid design - small waste
water container, can't grind beans, only has a manual coffee container,
wastes hidden deep inside the case, nowhere to warm cups, no strength
control and they can't make a decent ristretto. They are only sold to
people who want a Miele label and who don't know what coffee should
taste like. They will spend £1750 on a machine then fill it with Douwe
Egberts pre-ground pencil shavings.
If you want decent coffee the starting point is a Saeco 30320 Royal
Professional. If you want decent coffee beans the starting point is
Not only is the Saeco head and shoulders above the Miele in terms of the
coffee it makes, it's also half the price.
I think that the Gaggia ones are better.
