Introduction: Making a Protective Pouch for My Refrigerant Manifold.

About: As of April 2017 I have decided to no longer post on instructables. The fact that several of my published works have been removed without my consent is inexcusable. Also the insult of an author having no co...

I recently made my digital refrigerant manifold and I love it.

My concern is damage that can be done to it during transportation. I don't want my other tools hitting and damaging it.

Here is how I made a simple, inexpensive pouch for it using foam.

Step 1: Cutting the Shape Needed.

I notched out a triangular section for the manifold hook to come through. Now I have the ouch shape I needed.

Step 2: Gluing It Together.

I cleaned all surfaces to be glued with Rubbing alcohol. Using evostik adhesive, I glued the ouch edges together. Also I used another piece of foam to give extra padding where the digital gauges will be in the pouch.

Step 3: Completion.

Using some heavy tools, I applied weight to the glued areas and left them like that for a day.

With the pouch complete, I can safely transport my lovely manifold!
