I made this Cyanoacrylate (CA) Glue and Micro Mesh Pad Caddie for working on pens at the lathe. I got tired of not remembering where the micro mesh was located and the various CA glues were always in different places. This caddie also has French Cleats on the back so it can be fixed on the wall and easily picked up and moved nearer to the lathe.

These glue caddies are a all over the Internet, but this may be the first one that holds Micro Mesh and has a way to get the stack easily out of their pocket by putting your finger through the bottom and lifting out.

I didn’t plan this out in the CAD, I just put the stuff I needed to store in the caddie on a 1/4” plywood surface and marked out where the sides and dividers should be located.

Nice job, I like organization.

BTW, if you put your bottles of CA glue in a jar with a lid and then add a desiccant package the glue will last for a very long time. Moisture is what cures CA.

Thanks for the tip! I didn’t know that about CA.
