Over the past 25 years, I have worked with virtually every billet-index available on the market. I have stayed with one or two for a while, but have always returned to the Annemann indexes. Still, I found some problems with them… My 21st century “Expanded version” addresses all of these problems directly.
The problems with the original Annemann index, as we saw it, were as follows:
- The size: the thumb often slips out while removing a billet
- The material: just because playing cards are plentiful does not make them the best material to use!
- Locating the correct billet: the “steps” are not distinct enough
- Fastener: keeps coming loose
To that end we started by seeking out the best material we could find for the job, one that was thin and flexible, and above all durable; properties we found in medical x-ray film. From there we tracked down the best, least obtrusive fasteners that we could find and used them to hold together the custom die-cut dividers that we had made just a little larger than the original- and a lot easier to handle. Finally, we custom cut and attach thick ‘steps’ to the index, ensuring that each space in the index is distinct and easy to find.
The result is outstanding. A pair of indexes that are the most pleasurable to work with on the market. And with handling tips and 6 original routines included from Christopher Taylor, the Expanded Annemann Index comes with enough material to show just some of the outstanding possibilities available to you.
Let these be the first and last indexes that you will ever need to own, and have the pair open up hundreds of performing possibilities today.
