Single Core Wire Dispenser




Introduction: Single Core Wire Dispenser

So I had 5 meters of an 8 core wire  (Cat5 I think) and striped it down to the wires cause I needed some wire to prototype on my arduino, but after stripping it I was stuck with 40 meters of lose wire an nowhere to keep it. 

So I then thought I need something to store this in, after looking around my house in drawers of old junk I found a old camera film canister an thought if I put a hole in the top of it and then put in the wire (it doesn't need to be neat it usually untangles as you pull it out). 

given the size of these means that they are perfect size to keep in a tool box. 

P.S. sorry about the quality of the photos I don't currently have a camera other than my phone.
