I received 12 of these after responding to a special offer, and they made a very untidy pile on my bench.

Even if I had an available drawer to put them in, I could see that they would be a pain to store and easily retrieve for use, so I came up with this idea – based on the way that coffee capsules are dispensed.

Just a scrap piece of wood sawn down the middle at 60 degrees for the sides, and another scrap of ply for the base.

Very simple, but I was pleased with it, and the Grips are beside my bench and to hand when needed.

Thanks for the idea. I have been picking one or two of these up each trip to Menards lately.

I just ordered two more sets of these. Haven’t used them yet but for some reason, I’m almost as excited to bust these out as I am my new router.

-- May the good Lord help me if I ever actually have a shop, garage or basement.

Have your say...
