styrene rod holder
Posted by Rev21 on Sunday, February 26, 2017 2:04 AM

I saw a thread some time ago about how to store styrene rod. So I finally got around to making a holder. I actually made it a couple of months ago, but didnt know how to post pics. I finally had my wife show me how to do it. Here is the holder.   I got the tubes from walmart. They were filled with soap and the cap was removable with a wand for blowing bubbles. They worked out great. Band sawed the threaded portion off, cleaned off burs and had nice holders that are transparent so I can see the smaller shorter pieces that are down inside. Each tube is removable so I can pour out the smaller pieces when needed. The frame is all wood.

Great Idea.  Especially like that smalls can be found at a later time.  Is far ahead of my current method   of keeping them in their original packaging. Thumbs Up 



when the perfict model is made .......... I'll be in the other room

Wow Rev21, that is a really nice holder for Evergreen stock and looks handy too. I would make one after seein' yours but I really don't have the room to put it anywhere. Great job!
