We see a lot of requests for details about older models of Filofax organisers, what features they have, ring sizes etc. etc. There's no real ready source for some of the detailed information.
We have asked Filofax UK to consider including a 'back catalogue' on their new website, which is still under development, but I'm not sure how detailed it will be.
One of our readers Alan, sent me an outline proposal for an idea to build our own 'back catalogue' and to get as many people involved as possible to fill in the gaps and details of our knowledge.
We have done similar things in the past and they have been quite successful. So I've set up a Google Docs spreadsheet to act as a collection point for this information.
On the sheet are the following headings, with an example entry:
Material: Lambskin Leather
Filofax Marking: Embossed IFC
f Symbol: Embossed spine
Pen Loops: 2
Ring Protectors: Yes
Card slots: 7 (front)
Pockets: 2 (Front & back)
Zip Pouch: 1 (back)
Spine thickness 39 mm
Spine Length: 19.2 cm
Width w/o PL&C: 13 cm
Width w/ PL&C: 14.3 cm
Width open, lying flat: 28 cm
Picture, Front Cover: <link>
Picture, Inside Front Cover: <link>
Picture, Back Cover: <link>
Picture, Inside Back Cover: <link>
Picture, open, lying flat: <link>
PL&C = Pen Loop and Clasp.
IFC = Inside Front Cover
IBC = Inside Back Cover
Entries in italics are ones where there might be some uncertainty about the accuracy of the information.
