A Little Help for My Friend Painter




Introduction: A Little Help for My Friend Painter

This very simple instructable is dedicated to those who, like me delighteth to paint and refinish occasionally his house.

Step 1:

To contain the paint that will be used I have always used the containers of luck, disposable. However this fact I always encountered a disadvantage:
when inside the containers the paint was beginning to be scarce, and when I stand the brush in absent-mindedly container ... splasch ... the container fell to the brush's decentralised weight supported.

Step 2:

After cutting the top of the bottle, I divided into six equal parts the first half of the remaining bottle as to create a radially.
Then, through an old room air of bike I built small elastic and with these I blocked the radiating downward as in Figure.

Step 3:

Finally, to avoid injury with sharp edges, I've rounded up every edge of radially.

Step 4:

I also use these containers now and they have proved very stable and accidental shock-proof, and, in my case I assure you it is often the.I think someone else has already had this idea (is nothing transcendental), but I wanted to post it anyway if it can be useful to someone as it is incredibly easy to implement and to cost 0. I thank everyone for the attention, to the next by "do it yourself" torx.

    I like it simple but effective just the kind of ibble that people like. This would make a great container for parties or BBQs as well you could use them once then toss them straight into the recycling bin (after a quick rinse if they are really mucky) imagine all the washing up you could save. I can also see them being handy for the workshop, I am restoring a 1980s Honda at the moment & can see me making a few of these in advance to hold my nuts, bolts, washers & screws in with the addition of an old hard drive magnet they would be perfect. Good one I really like it. :-)
