    Default STAND for Drip Tips

    I want a stand just for tips!
    I have a stand that's working for my mods and my tanks - I just accidentally seem to have developed a little collection of tips...
    And I'd kind of like them all lined up standing...I keep knocking 'em all over when I try to grab one...

    Anyone have a stand just for their drip tips?
    please post a pic or link. And if you MADE one or happen to know - what size hole would I drill to hold a 510 tip?

    Wouldn't be pretty unless you made it so but I see a chunk of styrofoam and a bunch of wood skewers or chopsticks.

    Lol - I was picturing holes rather than "spikes" - but that's not a bad idea!

    I just took a little chunk of bubinga I had laying around and added holes. Took all of 10 minutes to drill, sand and coat. I try to keep my drip tip selection minimal. No need for a huge collection.

    Ya know - that's probably what I should do.
    I do have probably a dozen that I plan to keep - but I could also use a couple spots for tanks or drippers, etc.
    Want to save me a minute? Do you remember the right drill bit size?
