Rain Kilt (Skirt) for hiking
Homemade nearly-free Soldering Iron Stand
Soporte para soldador casero (casi gratuito)
ha ha. I'm envisioning those two balls in your pants.actually, I made chaps out of fur. quite easy, but as you say the hard part is keeping them up. Mine had belt loops, the traditional cowboy chap suspension method-- with a big wide belt.
get a larger dowel to wind the wire around. If the gun elements are squareish, consider a small square piece of wood as your form.
How would you go about making a stand that could hold a gun-type soldering iron?
Thanks for the idea
Aha...Rain chaps. Ongoing odyssey--I tried cutting the crotch on a cheap pr. rain pants, making 2 separate legs still joined by the waistband in back. (the cut front spreads for easier entry.) Two square corners are formed by the cut front waistband. Into these, i bunched two small rollon deodorant balls, i.e., one ball on each side tied with string into the fabric. To wear the chaps, pull on each leg, then tuck each ball into yr. belt, in front, to keep the chaps up.Biking in the rain, no problem. No sweat, plus freedom of movement as well. Failing a trouser belt, one could probably snag a 2-hook bungie around the balls and lift the bight up over one's head like a partial suspenders.
Great idea, especially solving the sweat issue. How does the kilt work for bicycling?
I tried to get a little fancy with a double layer plywood base to conceal the hook-through I made for the wire. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, especially since my local hardware store wanted $50 for the same thing.
