Material Caddy (Heat Sinks)


An earlier material organizer I came up with for the bench was the Chenille Caddy. It works well and is easily made. Since then a new idea for material storage has been peaking my interest. We have several old pc and other electronic devices come thru my area at work on their way to the recyclers. I usually look them over for components. I saw the heat sinks on a pc and the 'little light' bulb kicked on. All those uniform and narrowly spaced aluminum ribs would make a neat and attractive material storage rack for the bench. It also makes a 'cool looking' card holder for when tying at presentations and shows. (Note: Be sure the device is un-plugged before you start salvaging it. Also it's probably beyond repair when you're taking the heat sink off.)
