    Default Excuse the Mess

    This is another project in trying to tame the clutter in the shop. (Don't bust my chops on the missing grinder guard Got tired of digging through a few rod cases trying to read the fine print to see if it's 308, 309L, etc, so I finally put together a case holder that will hold 10 Rod Guard rod cases. I like the results, but still waiting to paint it and get in the extra holders I have on order.

    Purchased some 3" x 1" 16 gauge rectangular tubing and drilled some holes:



    Welded it together:



    It'll mount to the side of my Sync 200:

    Looks good. Where do you get the rod holders. The LWS has them but are kinda high $$. Do you get them online somewhere.

    Smile Rod holders

    Bought mine on line. LWS didn't have 'em. Similar price I think. Seems I got them from Indiana Oxygen? But you can find them listed on ebay as well.

    Nice work, very clean little organizer.

    And I wasn't even going to mention the missing safety guard on the grinder ....
