Some may say I went too far - but I reckon I got it just right

My mate also wanted me to make a knife rack for his bait board. I was originally going to just make a pan flute arrangement and screw it on but I didnt like the way the knifes rattled around in the round pipe.

So with my new found skills as a PVC Bender I saw potential for greatness.

I'm just mastering the new materials - but on my first attempt I managed to make a perfect slot for the knife - its a 2 stage docking - stage one holds it firmly in place but still easy to slip out with one hand - but if you shove the knife further down it locks into place and you have to give it a good yank to get it out

you did go too far, which makes it right - hats off.

A little tip for other pvc benders out there - if you want to make some nice rod holders (rocket launchers) - heat up one end of the pipe then press down over a stubby to get the professional flared end look. I find it helps to drink several stubs and then pick one thats just right......thats my excuse anyhow.

Nothing like some "Creative Juice" to get the creative juices flowing. I like what I'm hearing JB

Well its been a stella couple of days on the innovating front.

Learning to bend plastic has greased up the mind cogs.

First up was this Gem - I'm pretty tough so I ride and fish late at night. I bought a new light thats like staring into a strobe because of my unique mounting on the front of a basket.

When I was watering the tomatoes, I spotted these beauties and the solution to my problem was only minutes away...

A couple of cuts with the braid scissors - bend and heat the bend to set it - couple of Zip ties and a bit of a broom handle - and its done - No more distracting strobe

I mentioned the tomatoes - and another problem has presented itself - to do it with a hose takes forever and wastes both water and time - a milk bottle zip tied to the stake - punch 3 little holes in the side near the base - and the water goes where you want it to
