Intro: Making a Protective Pouch for My Refrigerant Manifold.
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!
