    Thank you Len,
    I may change one of them to three holding screws.

    Martin.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Great idea Martin. Just a thought on my part but if you were to use 3 holding screws instead of 4 you can also easily hold hex shapes and still have the ability to center other shapes.

    Hi Peter,
    I did give that some thought, Maybe a future project.

    Martin.

    Superb idea Martin. If you bolt them to a plate, add a small electric motor to one end and a couple of bearings to the cap you have a small lathe.

    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Hi Guys,

    When I was working on mast's, yard's, or anything that required painting I found It a little difficult as things keep slipping of of blocks when working or painting.

    So I knocked up a couple of holders.
    These can be used horizontally or vertically and rotated as and when required.

    Due to the 4 Allen bolts you can grip round or square in fact most shapes, you are only limited to the diameter of the Bottle tops.

    Made from scrap blocks of wood.
    8 x 5mm Allen bolts.
    2 x large Bottle tops.
    And 2 x long bolts for the main shafts.
    If it looks right it probably is.
