My Multi Task for Pencil and Flash Tools.




"Where I left the pencil? "
This is the question I most often when I'm doing the work, particularly at the stage where you have to do the tracking of parts but also after,I thought then to create a small pocket on hand to hold the pencil. After some thoughts I thought to do something a little more varied inspired by something seen around.

Step 1: The Components

The components are easy availability: a piece of leather or similar, two elastic belt with velcro, a penknife and a magnet. to paste the whole thing I used hot glue and adhesive cyan acrylic.

Step 2:

The various pockets were originally pasted with hot glue but glued acrylic glue cyan.

Step 3:

After you paste properly all pockets I inserted the straps with velcro for a first test.

Step 4:

And here's the first result.

Step 5:

 Allow a greater comfort I created of vents in the entire surface of the box; this has also helped strengthen the pockets of the joints with a certain aesthetic character.
And here's the final result.

Step 6: Appendix

I wanted to take away my desire to build a small version of my " port pencil": a minimal version.
Here it is.
And now I cannot say "where is over pencil?"... ... or maybe .... I have to say "where has the port pencils?"
Finally a photo of an application a little more "sporty" and with a character closest to the electrician gear pouch.Thank you all for your attention and for your patience; I hope this instructable may be helpful to someone or, perhaps a basis for further elaboration or improvement as sometimes I happen by browsing these pages. thank the site for your kind hospitality and do appointment to the next ... bye.

    I really like it, very useful & in many ways far more convenient than a tool belt in fact I may get some bits together & make one this evening. Having worked A LOT with leather I would suggest that you would be far better off stitching rather than glueing. If you have a real aversion to stitching you could always pop a couple of rivets or eyelets between pockets, loops & at each attached corner, this would be far stronger & less likely to come apart than any glue. I think would put the magnet on the outside of the arm to reduce the chances of it picking things up from a worksurface, perhaps a couple of hard drive magnets in pockets closed all around. I am looking forward to seeing if people come up with different versions for their particular interests, maybe using pin cushions or even an antistatic one for the electronics wizards out there.

    Thanks a lot for the valuable advice and especially your idea of a mini contest of sleeves objects really makes me mad. I am looking forward to seeing, if thou wilt, your version in photos; thanks again!
