Mods, if this should be in Test Equip and Tools, please move it. I wasn't sure.

I've hit upon the $1 million idea. And I'm going to give it away for free. Up at the shop today, I finally hit my limit of having pens, pencils, markers, driver bits and other similar shaped objects, consume half my shelf on the heavy duty bench. So, having a bunch of junk in my way, I accidentally came up with this.

It uses a 4x4 electrical box, and some 2" PVC. (Edit: Might actually be 1.5" I'll try and remember to check and post a correction). What could be simpler. It's patented ... I get $40 for each one you build. :-D

I'm going to make several more I think, for my other benches at least. The nice thing about this approach is you can make the tubes as long as you want. They fit very snugly into the box with no fasteners, and the box acts as a bottom as well. No fiddling, no screws, no glue, no nuttin honey.

K.I.S.S. Principle at it best. Thanks for the idea. Have plenty of those parts. Going to be a rainy weekend here. So out to the garage and put a couple together.
