Introduction: Tabbing Wire Support for Easy Cutting.

Picture of Tabbing Wire Support for Easy Cutting.

Really simple holder for tabbing wire rolls that helpes you to cut straighter and equal in size wires almost without effort :)

Step 1: You Need:

Picture of You Need:

A wood board 20x6 and about half inch thick (works a bit thinner too)

A lath 8 inch long

Bolt, 3 nuts, 4 washers

Wood glue

A couple of screws

And, of course, tabbing wire to hang on this baby!

Step 2: Build It.

I don't think it needs a lot of explanation: cut the wooden parts at the right sizes and clean the edges of any splinters; glue and screw or nail them together. Drill a hole at the top of the lath and put in the screw that will hold the tabbing wire roll. You also need a small wood piece, or a thick nail, or a pen cut at the proper size (about 2-3 inches) fixed with the remaining wire holders to make the 0 mark, this is where you cut the wire after you unrolled it to the desired lenght.

Hopefuly I've been clear enough explaining this step :(

Step 3: Result:

The only thing left to do is make the marks corresponding to the sizes you want the wires to be.

Thank you for reading :)
